WOLVES CONTINUE TO BOLSTER 2023 SQUAD
Wollongong Wolves Football Club is excited to announce the new signings of Harrison Buesnel and Alex Masciovecchio for the 2023 season. Coach David Carney has made his intentions clear for next season by signing another two youngsters. The new look squad is taking shape which sees a good mix of youth and experience and sure to add speed, agility and skill to the team. Masciovecchio, a 21 year old attacking midfielder, was a former Unanderra Hearts and Wolves junior in his younger days. After stints with Sydney FC and Rockdale, the exciting midfielder headed to Europe to play his football. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he was forced to head back home and signed for NPL1 club Sutherland.
After going full circle and being signed by the Wolves, Masciovecchio said he felt as though he felt like he was back home. “The Wolves have always been a great club and my relationship with them has always been very good. Even in my years away from the Wolves, they have always been in contact and provided support” Masciovecchio said.
“I feel as though now is the right time to come back to the Wolves. I'm also looking forward to learning a lot off Carney and Brosque who have a huge amount of experience. I was very successful as a young boy here and hopefully that can carry over as a senior" Masciovecchio concluded.
Buesnel, a 19 year old centre back, had a successful season in the NPL in the ACT last season, winning the league with Tuggeranong United. He also recently returned from a trial with A-League club Melbourne City.
The centre-back said he was incredibly excited to be joining a big club like the Wolves and very keen to learn and develop his game under Carney. “Carney has got a big reputation obviously playing for Australia. So, it's pretty exciting having a coach like that. Hopefully I can learn a lot from him and his experiences” Buesnel said.
“I will be putting a lot of work into becoming a key member of the team. The club has big ambitions so I will be training hard and putting my best foot forward to become a key member of the team” Buesnel concluded.
Coach David Carney said he was extremely happy to secure the services of Buesnel and Masciovecchio. "Both Harrison and Alex are both very skilful and quick players. They will fill key positions in our squad next year and both are very exciting players which will no doubt put bums on seats” Carney said.
“I am very happy to have these boys onboard for next season. They are young but have plenty of experience which will only benefit the team” Carney concluded. ... See MoreSee Less

The CPLB 13s and 14s have their finals trials in Kambah this week. 13s- Wednesday 7-8pm and Sunday 9-10am 14s- Wednesday 7-8pm
A huge thank you to all the players who attended the CPLB 16s and 18s trials. It was great to see so many new faces in our community. The 16s and 18s teams have now been finalized and letters of offer are being sent out.
At TUFC we believe that the referee is the heart of the game. You may have the best players and the best coach, but without a referee (official or volunteer) you don't have a game at all. For this reason, we'd like to highlight some of Canberra's referees and continue to develop a culture of respect in our club and community.
"The standard you walk past is the standard you accept."
Meet Megan, a player and referee.
⚽️How long have you been a referee? I have been a ref for just over 3 years
⚽️What do you love about it? I love being able to help young kids learn the rules and have fun. I also love the challenge of reffing the higher levels and pushing myself.
⚽️What advice would you give for other kids who are thinking about becoming a referee? You have your bad games but there is always more ups than down.
⚽️What would you like the players, coaches and supporters to know about being a referee? It’s not easy being a ref, and it makes our lives better if you don’t give us a hard time. We are also out the doing the best we can!
⚽️What’s the most memorable thing to happen while you’ve been reffing? Some of the most memorable things have been when I was the assistant referee for our 1st grade WPL team, and also getting to be an assistant referee in a men’s state league 2 grand final!
