The Central Coast Mariners are delighted to announce that 20-year-old centre back Nathan Paull has had his contract upgraded from a Scholarship to a full Isuzu UTE A-League deal.
After joining from Sydney FC’s academy during the off-season, the defender has impressed, starting in our Australia Cup match against his former club.
He has since gone on to play every possible minute of first team action at the heart of our defence, continuing to grow in confidence with every match.
Strong and quick with a quality eye for a pass, the defender has continued the Mariners history of helping to develop young players once they join the club.
The defender is pleased to now be on a full Isuzu UTE A-League contract, excited to continue his development with the Central Coast Mariners.
“It was really nice to have my contract upgraded, it has been a good start so far and I have been pleased to have gotten some games under my belt,” Paull said.
“It is great to have the coaches backing me to continue to progress and I look forward to working hard and producing my best on the pitch.”
Central Coast Mariners Football Manager Mark Jackson is pleased to be able to upgrade Paull’s contract as he begins his professional football journey.
“Upgrading Nathan’s contract is a great recognition for him and the progress that he has made. He has worked so hard to achieve that and as a club we are pleased to have been able to offer him this,” Jackson said.
“We have stressed to him that this is only the start of his professional career, and he is ready to improve every day and build on where he currently is.”
