Nick Montgomery has locked in his Foxtel Y-League 2019/20 squad ahead of their season opener against Canberra United in Canberra on Sunday.
Former Mariners star Montgomery will begin his first season in charge against Canberra United on Sunday at McKellar Park.
Montgomery will be looking to go a step further than the 2019/19 season, when the Mariners were just a win away from being level with the Western Sydney Wanderers and booking a spot in the Grand Final.
Speaking ahead of the season opener, Montgomery said he was looking forward to getting started this weekend.
“I’m excited by the group that we have together for this season and I’m really looking forward to kicking things off on Sunday,” he said.
“Canberra is the biggest road trip we have to make in our conference, so it’s good to get that out of the way early and fingers crossed we can get a good result out of it.”
“Some of the boys in this squad played in some tight contests with Canberra last season, so we know that it will be a tough fixture and we’ll have to be at our best to win it.”
Eight players are returning from last season, while a host of new faces help fill out Montgomery’s squad.
Dan Hall, Matthew Hatch, Joey Jevtic, Kyle Johnson, Mikey Katsoulis, Aidan Munford, Dylan Ruiz-Diaz and Jordan Smylie have all returned from last season.
The full squad is below.
