Yeah that interview was pretty close to the chest.

Sounds like we'll see Matty on the park again at some point, hopefully. Would love to be there for a retirement game at CCS when the time comes - he deserves it.

I'll never forget his first game/s, from the sideline he was like Gumpsy in that his energy shook up the game and made things happen. Exciting wh3en he came on. Not very refined in the early days but he got there. His Kuol like vigor definitely changed the trajectory of games for us.

Was talking to Kwassie recently and he reckons no one is likely ever eclipse Matty's club goals record because with a development approach we will usually on-sell players if they're performing that well and we are unlikely to see players stay long enough to rack up that many goals. So his all time scoring record is likely to remain for some years to come.

Makes sense, anyone good enough to do it is likely to be sold or poached. Ironically him being brought back was also a product of our limited resources.

I think I found the secret to winning titles and lifting silverware at CCMFC without spending huge dollars...bring Birraz up into the back 4 and play a 4-2-2-3? :D


*Obviously posting this for shits and giggles but interesting to see Man City play like this, as a Man U fan maybe we need to bring De Gea up to give the illusion of an extra player...

Monty is really top-notch isn't he. Wouldn't take another coach in the league over him. He cares about his players, he cares about winning, and he cares about the fans along with knowing how to get the best out of said players.

As a fan, what more could you want?

DECEMBER/JANUARY UPDATE WITH KEN SCHEMBRI – HEAD OF FOOTBALL​


Article Image Hero

As the COVID-19 situation has been constantly evolving, we sat down with our Head of Football Ken Schembri to discuss how the club is handling the rise in case numbers as well what the club is looking to do during the January Transfer Window.

Q. It’s been a tough period for the Mariners how is everyone holding up?

It has been a tough period for not just the club but all of the Central Coast I feel and over the Christmas period, the team was significantly impacted by COVID, however, thankfully, the majority are now on the mend.

Q. Are you able to tell us how many players and staff have tested positive?

Throughout the various points of testing that we have done, overall we have tallied 14 players and eight staff that have contracted the virus.

Q. What about the postponed games, what is the club doing or when are they going to be rescheduled?

The club is working with the Australian Professional Leagues (APL) to reschedule as soon as possible on a date that works for both clubs.

Q. What protocols are the Mariners upholing to prevent more players or staff contracting the virus and more games being called off?

Following the confirmation of multiple positive cases, we had the Centre of Excellence fully cleaned and disinfected. Along with this, upon the return to training, players who have yet to test positive to COVID-19 complete Rapid Antigen Tests every day on arrival. Outside of training, players are limiting social behaviours and attempting to avoid high risk settings.

Q. The players who were not positive, have they still been training?

With the rate that the infection was spreading through the club, the decision was made to totally shut down for seven days with all players self isolating at home. The club has since returned to normal training today.

Q. Moving away from the COVID situation, are we looking at bringing in any players during the transfer window?

We are constantly reviewing our situation and depending on long term injuries, we may consider looking at various options during this time.

Q. Currently sitting fourth after five matches played, is that where you ideally saw us sitting after this time?

At the time when the season was interupted we were happy with the progress that we had made however it will be difficult to judge with all teams being forced into this time without games. With a return to football against the Jets in a week, we will need to re start our season and continue to build momentum.

Our aim from the start of this season, along with the aim of every team, has been to make the finals.

Q. Are you happy reaching the FFA Cup Semi final?

The FFA Cup has been a great competition for us in the past and we are happy with our progress so far in this year’s edition. We are looking forward to seeing who we will play between Sydney and Brisbane.

Q. Any update on Matt Simon and when we will be seeing him back?

Matt sustained a neck injury and after being in a lot of pain, is recovering well after his operation. We will allow him all the time he needs to fully recover for such a serious operation and will welcome him back in due course.

Q. Anything else you want to say to the fans?

We are looking forward to our return to football in mid January and we really would like our fans to all come along and support our squad. Please all stay safe in these difficult COVID times and thank you once again for your continued support.

Finally some word on Dan Bouman


"We are pleased to welcome to Kavala and AOK, Daniel Bouman! This talented Australian attacking midfielder comes from the Australian A-League. Daniel has also competed in the K23 National Team of Australia. This exceptional young man signed a multi-year contract with our team! Daniel, welcome to AOK, welcome to Kavala!


Bottom of Greek League 2. They are bringing in a number of people in this window. You would hope in such a weak side he would get plenty of game time.
