Fowler not done with Roar’s A-L recruiting

By AAP Newswire

He's brought in 10 faces already but Brisbane coach Robbie Fowler says his rebuild of the A-League club isn't done yet.

Fowler's legion of lower-league British and Australian recruits made their first appearances on Saturday for their new club in a comfortable 3-0 pre-season win over NPL side Redlands United.

Welsh striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway was on the scoresheet, while George Mells, Tom Aldred and Aiden O'Neill were among those to turn out in front of more than 2000 fans at the Roar's Logan training base.

While he's happy with the players at his disposal, Fowler says another new face is set to arrive at the club soon.

"We've brought the players in early because we wanted to galvanise," the Liverpool legend said.

"We've got someone coming in within the next week or so - won't say who it is - but I think, as a manager of a squad, you're always looking at what can maybe change. I'll be no different."

The Roar will continue their pre-season with four more fixtures including clashes with fellow A-League teams Newcastle and Perth on the Gold Coast, before a FFA Cup round-of-32 match against Sydney FC on August 7 at Leichhardt Oval.
