Hi Mariners fans,

What a busy schedule we have at the moment with the AFC Champions League going on in between our Hyundai A-League matches.

Central Coast Mariners Update

It was great to see our boys take their first victory over Japanese opposition last week and while we are currently sitting at the bottom of our ACL pool, we still have a great chance to progress if we can keep Central Coast Stadium a fortress.

In the A-League, no matter what else happens, its always a pleasure to take the honours in the F3 Derby and this year our boys have delivered the bragging rights we so rightly deserve.

While the crowd figures for the ACL match and the F3 Derby were disappointing, there is no doubting the massive improvement in the atmosphere our fans are producing and our Yellow Army and Mariners Brass Band have been leading beautifully. Whether it be the improved call and response from the Yellow Army or the Brass Band involving the rest of the crowd with their marching around the stadium, there has been a massive improvement in the experience at all of our home matches.

Members of the Official Supporters Club and Yellow Army have recently been involved in discussions with the club about lots of different things – next season's playing kit, planning for the 10th Anniversary year and a number of points of your feedback. It's worth noting that while we read and consider comments on our social media sites, we ask that our members suggestions be emailed to us so we can ensure members thoughts are our priority.

So, if you have anything to say, send us your suggestion so we can include it in our discussions. In particular, if you have any suggestions about how we should celebrate our clubs 10th year, please do send those to ourselves and/or to the Mariner's directly. This is a milestone event and we need to do everything we can to make it a season to remember.

Official Supporters Club Progress Update

Some of the current feedback we're discussing with the club is:-

Fans have ask for The Loose Cannon to be available for our ACL home fixtures

Ground announcements including the player name announcements

The cannon count down process and pyrotechnics

Security arrangements to support the Mariners Brass Band being able to visit all Mariners fan areas
