Mariners sign Alexia Karrys-Stahl ahead of A-League Women’s season

The Central Coast Mariners are extremely excited to announce the signing of Alexia Karrys-Stahl for the upcoming A-League Women’s season. 

The 23-year-old joins the Mariners from Bankstown City, having spent the past few seasons with the NSW NPL Women’s club. The versatile footballer made 20 appearances for the side this year, scoring seven goals. 

This is Karrys-Stahl’s second stint in the A-League Women’s competition, having played for Canberra United in the 2021/22 season. She went on to make four appearances that campaign. 

An energetic footballer who can play both in attack and defence, the 23-year-old adds further depth to Head Coach Emily Husband’s squad as the team prepare to start their season next Saturday against the Newcastle Jets.

Karrys-Stahl is extremely excited to be playing in the Yellow and Navy this season, eager for the competition to get underway shortly.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Mariners ahead of the upcoming A-League Women’s season. To be a part of the team this campaign as the Mariners return to the competition is super exciting and something that I really look forward to,” she said. 

“I can’t wait to get out on the pitch, become a part of the community and help alongside the rest of the team to leave a lasting legacy on the Coast.”

Central Coast Mariners Head Coach Emily Husband is pleased to have secured the 23-year-olds signature, excited to see what she can bring to the squad this season. 

“Alexia is another great addition to the group ahead of the season. She has been training with us throughout pre-season, she has shown us what she can do and no doubt she will do what we need for us to succeed,” Husband said. 

“She is great on the ball and loves to play in the wide areas. She is the type of player who can insert herself either in the middle or out wide with the ability to play some nice deliveries. It is great to have her signed with us for the upcoming season.”
