Now, with the EBay auction for the pink kits closed and every last dollar from the bucket collection counted, the Club is pleased to report a grand total of $18,668 has been raised for Australia-s Cancer Council.

Gun goalkeeper Mathew Ryan-s unique jersey proved to be the hottest item up for auction, with one lucky fan collecting his kit for $760.

Left back Joshua Rose, who also pledged a free pair of signed boots to the winning bidder, can be proud that his shirt raised a stunning $680 for charity.

Meanwhile, captain John Hutchinson-s number 7 kit earned a strong $480 for the cause.

The grand total was enhanced thanks to a number of valued Central Coast Mariners supporters, partners and sponsors. Wyong Shire Council, Gosford City Council, Central Coast Radio (2GO & Sea FM), and PH Electrical and Solar, each contributed $1,000 to the grand total.

From the sales of the pink kits on game day, Central Coast Mariners also raised $1,000.

Central Coast Mariners FC extends its gratitude to every fan that contributed and supported to our Pink Ribbon Day initiative, particularly Mingara Recreation Club who were the matchday sponsor for the game against Perth Glory.
