CLUB STATEMENT: Mariners squad movements

On the first official day of Tony Walmsley’s tenure as Head Coach of the Central Coast Mariners – the club can today confirm that Isaka Cernak, Hayden Morton, Tom Slater and Dejan Pandurevic will not remain with the yellow and navy beyond the Hyundai A-League 2014/15 season.

26-year-old Cernak arrived on the Central Coast in February 2014 after stints with five rivalling Hyundai A-League clubs and featured 18 times for the Mariners this season, including 12 starts.

Morton is a product of the Central Coast Mariners Foxtel National Youth League system and joined the mini Mariners in 2011. The 21-year-old featured twice in the club’s Championship winning season as well as three starting berths towards the back end of the 2014/15 campaign.

Slater departs on mutual consent, recruited by Graham Arnold in the lead up to the Hyundai A-League 2013/14 season and has featured once in Australia’s top flight. At 18-years-of-age the former Sydney FC Youth young gun has a long career ahead.

Pandurevic was released early and will return to Manly United for the club’s PS4 NPL New South Wales Men’s 1 competition.

The Central Coast Mariners would like to wish Cernak, Morton, Slater and Pandurevic all the best in their future endeavours.
