Midfielder Bianca Galic signs for Central Coast Mariners

The Central Coast Mariners are extremely pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Bianca Galic.

She joins the club having played two seasons of A-League Women’s football in the past, missing the 2022/23 campaign after tearing her ACL. 

Galic has been a key member of Sydney University’s First Grade women’s team for almost for a decade, joining the club at fourteen years of age. 

Through her time with the team the midfielder has regularly worked under our A-League Women’s head coach Emily Husband, currently lining up for her Sydney University First Grade squad. 

The midfielder began her A-League Women’s career with Canberra United in 2020, helping the side to their first semi-finals appearance in four seasons. Galic featured four times that campaign, scoring one goal. 

Coming into the 2021/22 season she traded green for red and black, signing for Western Sydney Wanderers. She played 10 times that season, starting on nine occasions as one of the beating hearts of the midfield. 

Galic unfortunately missed the most recent season after suffering an ACL injury, coming back this year to play for Husband’s Sydney University team. 

The midfielder is ecstatic to be joining the Mariners for the upcoming season, eager to play a key role for the side this campaign. 

“I’m super excited to be able to sign with the Central Coast Mariners. I have had Emily coach me at Sydney University for a couple of seasons as well as having her as an assistant when I was at Canberra United, so to have her as my head coach at the Mariners will be great,” Galic said. 

“I will bring a never give up attitude to the Central Coast. I will always give 100% and do anything to help the team win. With the season coming up in just a few months I can’t wait to get started.”

Mariners Head Coach Emily Husband is thrilled to have Galic joining the squad, eager to watch her continue to develop as a player in the Yellow and Navy. 

“For me, Bianca is a really special player. She has a lot of versatility, being able to play anywhere in the midfield or even across the front three if needed. She has had a really promising few months coming back from her ACL injury and I know that she is going to push on from here,” Husband said. 

“As a midfielder she has played alongside some fantastic players who have gone on to do some amazing things. I am extremely thrilled to have Bianca join the team this season and see her playing a pivotal role this campaign.”
