Central Coast Mariners announce departure of Courtney Newbon

The Central Coast Mariners can confirm the departure of goalkeeper Courtney Newbon, following the return of both Casey Dumont and Sarah Langman from injury. 

The 23-year-old joined the club shortly before our first game of the season, following an ankle injury sustained by Langman in the week leading into the match. On minimal notice, the goalkeeper lined up in our historic F3 Derby clash in front of over 5,000 fans at Industree Group Stadium.

Newbon made multiple key saves in that game and continued her strong form throughout the following matches. This included a remarkable save and clean sheet against Wellington Phoenix in round five, which helped us secure a historic first three points at home. 

These performances have seen her be nominated for October/November’s Player of the Month award, being one of 10 shortlisted candidates. 

Central Coast Mariners Head Coach Emily Husband thanks Newbon for her efforts, praising both her performances and professionalism over the past few months. 

“Courtney joined us knowing that her role would be a short term one, which she handled very professionally and did us as a club a great service during her time on the Central Coast,” she said. 

“We are incredibly thankful for everything that Courtney has done for us during her time at the Mariners, helping us out during an unexpected period. She has done both herself and the Central Coast extremely proud, and we wish her nothing but the very best in the future.”

The whole of the Central Coast Mariners would like to thank Courtney for her important efforts and contribution to the club and wish her the very best for the future.
