Seb Ryall's sudden Sydney FC departure a 'shock' - Luke Wilkshire

Despite the absence of 10 first-team players, Adelaide United earned a point against reigning champions Sydney FC at the Adelaide Oval.
A late header from Bobo meant that a new record of 25 home games unbeaten was set for Sydney FC in the game against Newcastle Jets.

Seb Ryall's Sydney FC teammates admit they were shocked at the defender's abrupt decision to leave football indefinitely.

At his own request, Ryall was granted an immediate release from the A-League club on Wednesday, driven by a desire for a life outside the sport he's practised professionally for more than a decade.

Despite the absence of 10 first-team players, Adelaide United earned a point against reigning champions Sydney FC at the Adelaide Oval.

Peter Skapetis has reunited with his former Young Socceroos coach Paul Okon after leaving Brisbane Roar to sign a deal with A-League rivals Central Coast Mariners.

Skapetis, 23, was released by the Roar on Thursday after failing to make an impact in his 14 appearances this season.

But the ex-Queens Park Rangers and Stoke City youth player has landed on his feet with a contract for the rest of the A-League campaign to join Okon at the Mariners.

Western Sydney defender Robbie Cornthwaite
Robbie Cornthwaite has left Western Sydney Wanderers to join Malaysian side Perak TBG.
