“Saturday will be a very special day for Sydney FC with Brett’s (Emerton) first appearance in a Sydney FC shirt and our Community Fan Day,” said Sydney FC CEO Dirk Melton. “Since Brett joined Sydney FC we have had increased interest and we are hoping that will continue on Saturday.

“Fan Day is a great chance for us to embrace the Sydney FC Members and fans and then they in turn can embrace Brett, Terry McFlynn and the rest of the players as we move closer to the start of the A-League season.”
