Mariners confirm departure of Matheus Moresche

The Central Coast Mariners can confirm the departure of A-League Championship winning forward Matheus Moresche on mutual terms from the club to pursue other opportunities.

The 25-year-old leaves the club after two seasons, playing 37 matches and scoring six goals including the Mariners sixth in the 2022/23 A-League Men’s Grand Final. 

The striker appeared regularly for the club during his first season, before unfortunately tearing his ACL against Newcastle Jets in May 2022. 

Nine months later he returned from injury, making his season debut against Perth Glory in February this year. 

He played 11 matches during the 2022/23 season, winning the Grand Final in his final appearance. 

Central Coast Mariners Head Coach Nick Montgomery wishes Moresche well and thanks him for his time with the club. 

“After lengthy discussions with Moresche we felt that it was in everyone’s best interest that we mutually terminated his contract for him to pursue other opportunities,” Montgomery said. 

“Unfortunately, his ACL injury took away a lot of his time here and it was important for him to get back to playing regularly. He will always be remembered for his goal in the Grand Final and we all wish him well for his future endeavours.” 

Moresche thanks the club for the past two years and wishes everyone the best for the future. 

“I would like to thank everyone at the Mariners for the past two seasons at the club. I have loved the Central Coast and the time that I have spent here,” Moresche said. 

“A special thank you to the fans who have showed me and the team so much support. To win the championship and score in the Grand Final is something that I will always remember. I wish everyone at the Mariners the best for the future.”
