Central Coast Mariners wish to advise its Members and supporters, as well as media, that striker Adam Kwasnik will miss the remainder of the Club-s 2013/14 season due to a knee injury.

Kwasnik will undergo surgery in the New Year to address a knee cartilage problem, with the recovery phase from the operation rendering him unavailable for the remainder of the campaign.

Kwasnik is understandably disappointed to have been ruled out for the rest of the season, however said his focus is on returning to full fitness and competitive action as soon as possible.

“I am very disappointed, but my focus is getting back with the squad for next pre-season,” he said. “First and foremost I just want to play in the Hyundai A-League again. It will be a long process, but hopefully I can get back.”

Kwasnik has played 158 competitive matches and scored 42 goals for the Mariners since 2005.

Club management will be considering its options over the coming weeks in regards to potentially adding an injury replacement player to its squad in place of Kwasnik.
