Where it all began
By Chris Boulous
FORMER Westfields Sports High school student Aaron Mooy is one of the inaugural members of Western Sydney Wanderers FC.
The Young Socceroos midfielder is expected to be the first of several "home-grown" talents in the squad that will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Mooy attended the Fairfield West school for four years. He left school after year 10 to take up a contract with the Bolton Wanderers.
Recently the 21-year-old has been playing in Scotland.
Former school mentor Trevor Morgan
said Mooy was a great buy for the new club.
"He is a great passer of the ball and has a great first touch," Morgan said.
"When he was young he was small and skillful and people thought he probably wouldn't make it physically.
"Now, he has developed into a very strong player across the park."
