Mike Charlesworth statement on future of Mariners

Central Coast Mariners Chairman Mike Charlesworth has today announced that he will seek a new investor to purchase the club and allow him to step away from the Mariners.

Having been involved with the Mariners for over a decade, Charlesworth said now is the time for him to move on and bring in a fresh face to take the Mariners forward.

“After 10 years of involvement with the Mariners , I feel the time is right for me to now step aside and to look for a new investor to take on the ownership of the Club,” Charlesworth said.

“With a host of young talented players having broken into our first team and with a new independently run A-League around the corner it’s an exciting time for the club to grow and to now move forward under new ownership.”

The club will now begin to work through a due diligence process with interested parties with the aim of finding the most suitable investor to take the club forward for the long term.
