Half a dozen of the Mariners’ finest young prospects have been named in Jan Versleijen’s combined Qantas Olyroos and Qantas Young Socceroos squad to attend a training camp at the AIS.

The Central Coast Mariners have had 6 players named in a 31-man combined Qantas Olyroos and Qantas Young Socceroos squad due to attend a training camp at the AIS next week.
