Bentleigh Greens upset Wellington Phoenix, Western Sydney survive Hellenic Athletic scare

Usain Bolt confirmed that he is training indefinitely with Central Coast Mariners as he looks to become a professional footballer in the A-League.
New Western Sydney Wanderers coach Markus Babbel is keen to get started in the A-League after a number of friendly games.

Mark Rudan's tenure as Wellington Phoenix coach is off to a disastrous start after a 1-0 defeat to a 10-man Bentleigh Greens in the FFA Cup.

The Greens took the lead midway through the first half and had a man sent off 10 minutes later but were still able to hold out their A-League opponents to secure a famous victory at Kingston Heath on Tuesday night.

It is just the sixth time an A-League side has been beaten in the cup by a team outside of the national competition.

Wellington Phoenix have made their second Polish signing in as many weeks, adding midfielder Michal Kopczynski to the squad on a season-long loan from the country's top-fight champions Legia Warsaw.

Having signed goalkeeper Filip Kurto last week, the Phoenix are now home to two Poles, with the club hoping they'll have the same impact as two of their compatriots did last season.

Mark Rudan backs Mitch Nichols to turn career around: 'He made a mistake but haven't we all'

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why he doesn't see Usain Bolt's six-week A-League trial as anything more than a piece of commercialism.

Former Socceroo Mitch Nichols admits he felt like an A-League pariah until the Wellington Phoenix came knocking.

Nichols spoke of his relief at accepting a two-year offer from Phoenix coach Mark Rudan, fearing a brush with the law in 2017 could potentially end his sparkling career at the tender age of 29.

Gifted attacking midfielder Nichols and former Melbourne City FC striker David Williams were unveiled on Monday as the latest cogs in a promising group being assembled by Rudan.

It is the fifth...

Wellington Phoenix adds Mitch Nichols, David Williams to A-League squad

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why he doesn't see Usain Bolt's six-week A-League trial as anything more than a piece of commercialism.

Wellington Phoenix coach Mark Rudan is hoping to eke the best out of two former Socceroos after signing Mitch Nichols and David Williams.

The A-League veterans are the first Australians Rudan has lured to the Kiwi club and the first players with attacking intent.

Midfielder Nichols, 29, was without a club after one of his less productive campaigns last season, scoring one goal in 13 appearances for Perth Glory.

Striker Williams, 30, is leaving the Hungarian top flight after spending almost three...

Wellington Phoenix sign ex-Roda JC keeper Filip Kurto

Wellington Phoenix coach Mark Rudan has continued to build from the back with confirmation of Polish goalkeeper Filip Kurto as his second player signing.

A week after welcoming veteran English defender Steven Taylor to the A-League, Rudan has snapped up the former Poland youth team player from Dutch club Roda JC.

The 27-year-old has been hailed as potentially one of the best glovemen in the league by Rudan, who has kept an eye on his career in Europe.

Kurto played 108 games in the top-flight Eredivisie...
