When the Western Sydney Wanderers Powerchair Team plays Sydney PFC this weekend at Kevin Betts Stadium in Mt Druitt in the NSW’s 5th round, Ben Keyte will earn his 50th cap with the team.  This makes him one of the most capped players in the team’s history. Goalkeeper Andy Waite had his 50th cap earlier this season.


In the most recent round, the Wanders had their first loss of the season, going down 3 – 2 to the Newcastle Jets Powerchair Football Club. Keyte and Jacob Cross each scored a goal for their side in the loss.

In the second round of the 2016 league, Keyte scored one of his team’s two goals in their 2 – 2 tie with the Central Coast Mariners.  Abdullah Karim put up the second goal.  The team had a goalless draw in their opener against Sydney FC.  Keyte was also a critical goal scorer for the Wanderers in the 2015 season.
