Pluim Park will play host to the 2019 Central Coast Select fixture on Wednesday 25th September, as the Central Coast Mariners get set to take on some of the best local talent from the Coast region.
The match will be the second in a double header, with the Central Coast Mariners Academy Women taking on a CC Select side as well in the first match.
With the squad heading to Melbourne to take on Hume City next week, the fixture will give Mariners fans a chance to catch their side in action at home after a string of away fixtures, including the recent tour of Tasmania where the side took on a Tasmanian State Team and South Hobart FC.
Head Coach Alen Stajcic said the match would be a great pre-season occasion, and a chance for the community to get behind the team.
“As a group, we are all really looking forward to this match against the Central Coast Select,” Stajcic said.
“It’s a chance for us to put on a show for the community, but also a chance for us and the fans to see some of the local talent that is around, and an opportunity for those players to showcase themselves against A-League opposition.”
Central Coast Football CEO Darren Sprod said the event is a great opportunity for the region’s best male and female footballers.
‘I’m really excited at the prospect of hosting the Central Coast Mariners Select match at Pluim Park on the 25th of September,” Sprod said.
“Events like these provide football fans throughout the Central Coast region the unique opportunity to see their professional football team mix it with the best talent from our regions local clubs.’
‘As well as the Mariners A-League side taking on a squad comprised of the best talent from our local Battlewin Premier League competition, I’m delighted that we were able to extend this to include our region’s best female footballers too.
“On the back of an extremely competitive Central Coast Unity Bank Women’s League season, I’m sure the girls selected to represent our local clubs will be elated at the opportunity to take on their Central Coast Mariners counterparts.’
Central Coast Mariners members will receive free entry to the matches.
