As a lifelong servant to football on the Central Coast and a Match Day Volunteer with Sydney FC, the Central Coast Mariners and Sydney FC are set to pay tribute to Ash Grant at Central Coast Stadium this Saturday.
Both the Mariners and Sydney FC players will don black armbands as they take the pitch on Saturday to commemorate Ash’s contribution to football.
During Ash’s playing career, he wore number 8. Both sets of fans will be urged to stand and applaud during the 8th minute of play to pay their respects.
