Wolves bolster strikers for 2015

THE Warwick Wolves are set to recieve a huge boost for 2015, with the additions of two former National Premier Leagues Queensland players.

Matt Carey said yesterday he would return to the Wolves for 2015, while it is understood Mark Ferdinand and Matt Elford are possibilities to join the Wolves too.

Carey and Ferdinand both played for the South-West Thunder in the National Premier Leagues Queensland last season, along with a third Warwick player, Mitch Siebenhausen.

The trio would be a huge boost for the Wolves, who finished second behind Stanthorpe United on last season's table, only to be knocked out of the finals in straight sets by United and then Ballandean.

Carey, who last played for the Wolves when he was in the Colts and Men's side in 2011, said he was looking forward to playing in Warwick again.

"The National Premier Leagues was a really good competition," Carey said.

"I knew it would be tough to play in the NPL and it was a very good experience," Carey said.

"But the amount of travel for training and games just sort of got too much with work as well.

"I'm excited to come back and play for the Wolves."

After they fell short last season, Carey said he firmly believed the Wolves could win Stanthorpe Football this season.

"I think we have a very good chance (of winning)," Carey said.

"There is a fair bit of talent in that side and they weren't too far off last season."

Carey, who generally plays striker but can also play on a wing or in central midfield, said he was also looking forward to playing alongside Tim Delaney up forward, who was one of the Wolves' best performers last season.

"I haven't played much with Tim, but from what I know about him, he had a very good season last year and is a quality player.

"I'm confident we can develop a good strike partnership if we get the opportunity."
