Mark Bridge will return to western Sydney on a two-year deal with the Wanderers.

Born-and-raised in St Clair, Bridge was a foundation player with the Wanderers and will return for his fifth season with the club.

Bridge said he was excited about re-joining his hometown club.

“I was raised in St Clair so for me to be back playing for this club, it holds a special place in my heart and hopefully I’m a part of it for a long time to come,” Bridge said.

The 31-year-old striker will return to the A-League after spending last season with Thailand’s Chiangrai United.

One of the most decorated players in Wanderers history, Bridge has twice been Wanderers player of the year and tallied 112 games with 32 goals.

He said he looks forward to returning to play under Tony Popovic.

“Popa’s a great leader, I think he brings the best out of his players and he definitely gets the best out of me so it was a big part of me coming back,” Bridge said.

“As successful as this club has been in its short history, that grand final win has still eluded us so that’s definitely a massive driver for me this season."
