The Central Coast Mariners’ pre-season preparations continue on Wednesday July 19 at Pluim Park against Playstation 4 NPL 1 outfit, Hakoah Sydney City East. Entry is FREE and kick-off is 7pm.
After recently being crowned Waratah Cup Champions thanks to their win over APIA Leichhardt Tigers, Hakoah will travel to the Central Coast to take on Paul Okon’s Mariners.
For Mariners fans, it is their second chance to catch the new-look Mariners in action live and local on the Central Coast after the Yellow & Navy’s first trial match against the Central Coast All Stars.
It will be a mighty battle for the Mariners with Hakoah Sydney City East boasting experienced Scottish midfielder/defender Gavin Rae who arrived in Australia after a decorated career in the U.K. with the likes of Dundee, Rangers, Cardiff City and Aberdeen. During his time in the U.K., Rae notched up over 400 professional appearances and has been capped 14 times for the Scottish national team.
