Transcript - Lucy Wicks in Parliament on the Central Coast Football Community

Thursday, 04 June 2015

The Central Coast community is passionate about sport – and in Gosford we have the home ground of a club that has so much to be proud of in its short history.

The Central Coast Mariners are entering their 11th season in the A-League, and boast a proud record including a Championship Trophy.

But of course the true heartbeat of the club is its supporters, with more than 6,000 members, including the Yellow Army.

This year the Mariners are asking “Are You In?” And I’m proud to say that yes, I’m in for Season 11!

Good luck to CEO Shaun Mielekamp, Coach Tony Walmsley, Captain Nick Montgomery – and also outgoing skipper John Hutchinson, a Mariners legend who’s now moving into a coaching role.

I’m in because it’s all about standing up for the Coast, and our great community.

Because it’s not just about the Central Coast Mariners, but also the 10 football clubs in my electorate, who you’ll see at parks and ovals across the Coast every weekend.

There’s … 

•             The Avoca Sharks

•             East Gosford Rams

•             Gosford City Dragons

•             Kariong United Cougars

•             Kincumber Roos

•             Mountain District Football Club

•             Southern and Ettalong United

•             Terrigal United

•             Umina United Eagles

•             And the Woy Woy Roosters Football Club

It’s also great to see the Mariners engage with these young stars of the future, by attending training sessions, inviting them to play on the field at half time – and by committing to play more games next season at Central Coast Stadium.

So I’m supporting Mariners and our local football clubs because I’m passionate about our community, and proudly wear my yellow and navy in Parliament today!
