Hyundai A-League Countdown: '5'

In our Hyundai A-League countdown series, we look at the men who make up the Central Coast Mariners squad… from player number 23, down to player number 1. Today, we look at local product, Brad Porter.

5. Brad Porter

Born and raised on the Central Coast, local product Brad Porter endured a frustrating season last year with a knee injuring ruling him out for the majority of the campaign.

Having now returned to full fitness, Porter is intent on returning to the type of form that made him a regular on the Mariners right side in 2008 and 2009.

A popular member of the Mariners squad, Porter has been with his hometown club since the inaugural Hyundai A-League season six years ago linking with the Yellow and Navy after a spell at the Australian Institute of Sport.

At just 24, Porter still has his best years of football ahead of him.
