GREATER Western Sydney has officially locked in coach Leon Cameron with a two-year contract extension.

"Given his success and the relationships he’s formed since arriving at the club at the end of 2012, we are delighted to extend his contract for a further two seasons."

Cameron joined the club as a senior assistant to inaugural coach Kevin Sheedy ahead of the 2013 season.
