After a strong season with the Central Coast Mariners Youth team in 2010/11, Bernie Ibini-Isei was promoted to the Mariners Hyundai A-League squad at the back end of last campaign.

Having fired in 12 goals to make him the leagues- top scorer during the National Youth League season, Ibini-Isei also managed to net on his full Hyundai A-League debut against Gold Coast United.

Tall, pacey and with a sharp eye for goal, the attacker was born in Nigeria however is proud to call Australia home, and recently represented the Qantas Young Socceroos at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Colombia.

Big things are expected of Ibini-Isei for both club and country.
