Squad news: Young guns bound for Melbourne


Two Mariners Academy young guns will earn invaluable experience travelling with the Hyundai A-League squad in preparation for the Central Coast Mariners’ final game of the season.

Having both made their Hyundai A-League debuts at Central Coast Stadium this season, Lewis Miller & Dylan Ruiz-Diaz have been selected in Alen Stajcic’s provisional squad to face Melbourne City at AAMI Park.

After scoring his maiden Mariners’ goal, it’s been a mixed week for Kye Rowles who will serve the first game of his three-game suspension as a result of his red card. FFA Cup games count towards Rowles’ suspension.
