PRE-SEASON: Tamworth to host #F3Derby


The Central Coast Mariners will travel to Tamworth next month to take on their old rivals, the Newcastle Jets on Saturday August 13 in a pre-season clash.

Following the Club’s Round of 32 Westfield FFA Cup hit out on August 2 against Green Gully in Victoria, the Mariners will continue preparations for the upcoming season with their first open hit out against a Hyundai A-League opponent this pre-season.

The Central Coast Mariners boast a long-standing relationship with Western NSW that saw the club spend a week in Orange last pre-season which involved a match against the Newcastle Jets along with a raft of community activations.

With the assistance of Newcastle Permanent Building Society, the Mariners regularly visit Western NSW with their Newcastle Permanent School Holiday Clinics, which took part in Dubbo this month.

The #F3Derby will kick-off against Newcastle as the main game at 4pm on Saturday with a curtain raiser match between Oxley Vale Mushies & North Armidale scheduled for kick-off at 1:30pm.
