The 17-year-old attacker developed his game at Kariong’s International Football School and was presented his #CCMFC jersey by inaugural Mariners signing, Damien Brown on Tuesday 5 January. Buhagiar was one of the standout performers of Joe Haywood’s Foxtel National Youth League squad during the 2015/16 season that was rewarded with a Hyundai A-League contract.
The entirety of Buhagiar’s football career has been played on the Central Coast that started with the Umina Eagles when he was just four years old.
The Umina junior climbed the tiers of local football before making the progression to representative level and is the first, of hopefully many players to sign a professional contract from the International Football School. Trent enrolled as a student of the International Football School from its inception and has been a shining light within their program for the past three years.
