The Central Coast Mariners are excited to announce the inclusions of Abraham Majok, Jai Ingham, Samuel Silvera and Daniel De Silva to the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 squad.
Majok (20), originally from Kenya and moving to Australia in 2005, began his NPL career in 2014 playing for Spirit FC. In 2016 he moved to the Western Sydney Wanderers youth and then promoted to the Hyundai A-League squad. He has signed on a one year deal.
Fast paced attacker, Jai Ingham (25) makes the move to the Mariners from Melbourne Victory where he spent the last two seasons. Having also represented New Zealand on an international level, the winger is joining the Yellow & Navy on a two year deal.
Young Socceroo Sam Silvera (18) also joins the squad on a one year scholarship deal. The former Western Sydney Wanderers youth star was part of the successful U20s Championship squad in 2017, also taking out the Wanderers Youth Player of the year honours. Silvera is looking forward to beginning his professional career with the Mariners.
Finally, Daniel De Silva will be returning to the Mariners after the conclusion of his one year loan deal with Sydney FC. De Silva was the first player to be part of the Hyundai A-League Intra-league loan system which came into place in 2018.
Head coach Alen Stajcic is pleased with the squad that is forming so far, but knows he still has some key signings to make.
“We’re really excited at the recruitment process that we have undertaken so far” Stajcic said.
“We have a few key positions that we need to fill, including a goalkeeper. It’s been extensive, both domestically and internationally. We’ve nearly completed our domestic signings so far but we’ve still got our visa players to come which we will hopefully be in a position to announce shortly.”
The team will commence their pre-season training on Monday 24 June 2019.
