25. Shannon Cole- 50 A-League appearances, 2 goals (2012-)

The only player to have been at the club in every one of their seasons, Cole has struggled with fitness in recent years, only making a handful of appearances off the bench. Etched his name into red and black folklore with an equalising free kick against Sydney FC in the first season before scoring crucial goals in the group stage and the semi final on the run to the Asian Champions League triumph. 

24. Adam D'Apuzzo- 48 A-League appearances (2012-14)

An underrated player for the entirety of his career, D'Apuzzo quickly cemented himself as Tony Popovic's first-team left back, making 48 appearances - 47 of them in the starting line-up. His reliable presence in the back four was under-estimated and his absence was missed when he respectively chose business ahead of football after two seasons.

23. Scott Neville- 39 A-League appearances, 1 goal (2015-)

Perhaps his best moment for the club was his cracking strike that gave the Wanderers a glimmer of hope in the 2016 Grand Final. However, Neville  provided a constant threat down the right side throughout the 2015-16 season with his dangerous crosses begging for strikers to latch onto the ball. Still at the club, and one of the first names on the team sheet each week.

22. Dario Vidosic- 28 A-League appearances, 4 goals (2015-16)

The former Socceroo proved that he could produce on the big stage in his solitary season with the Wanderers. Scored in two Sydney derbies and also popped up in the right spot to poach the extra-time winner in the 5-4 semi-final thriller against Brisbane. 

21. Dimas Delgado- 39 A-League appearances, 2 goals (2015-)

The only member of the Spanish trio to stay on board for another season has seen Dimas replace Nikolai Topor-Stanley as club captain. Turning 34 just next month, Dimas leads by example with passion and a desire to win the ball that all coaches look for in a player. Scored his first two goals in the A-League this season with a penalty against the Jets and a sumptuous free-kick in Brisbane.
