Wellington Phoenix Football Club to announce its first player signings today

10:30 am on 1 May 2007

The Wellington Phoenix Football Club will today announce its first player signings, just six weeks after becoming part of the Australian Hyundai A-League football competition.

Coach Ricki Herbert has been behind the eight-ball in not having any names on paper unlike his seven Australian rival clubs who have their playing rosters filling up.

Ricki Herbert's side face five matches in the pre-season tournament - three in pool play and two play-offs in the lead-up to the season proper.

The first Pheonix player signings are to be named tomorrow afternoon.
