Daniel DeSilva to depart the Mariners

The Central Coast Mariners can today confirm that Daniel DeSilva will depart the club when his contract expires at the end of this month.

The 24-year-old played 63 A-League matches for the Mariners across three seasons and spent a season on loan at Sydney FC in 2018-19.

DeSilva thanked the club and fans for their support during his time on the Coast.

“I have loved being a part of this club and amazing community,” DeSilva said.

“I would like to thank the amazing fans for all their support through some tough years and hopefully we were able to pay you back a bit after this season.”

“Thank you to all the staff and people who make the club run.”

“And of course, I’d like to thank my teammates for making my time at the club a memorable one. It’s time for me to start a new challenge and I wish the club and the community all the best for the future.”

Mariners Head of Football Ken Schembri wished DeSilva all the best moving forward.

“Danny leaves us on the back of a successful season for the team and his creativity will be missed.”

“All of us at the club wish him the best during his next challenge,” Schembri said.
