Central Coast Mariners FC wish to extend its condolences to the family and friends of The Honourable Neville Wran who past away on Sunday evening. He was 87.

Wran was the Premier of New South Wales between 1976 and 1986, and also served as the Patron of Central Coast Mariners FC from its foundation year.

In his role as Club Patron, Wran was a regular at Mariners matches throughout the early seasons of the Hyundai A-League. He also attended numerous significant Mariners events, and championed the Club in the Australian sporting community. Moreover, Wran was a popular figure at the Club-s annual awards evenings.

Wran was introduced to the Mariners by former Mariners Chairman, Mr Lyall Gorman, who is now with Western Sydney Wanderers FC. Wran had a great passion for the Central Coast region, believed in the vision of the Club, and was very interested in supporting the growth and development of the Mariners.

Wran will be remembered fondly by all Central Coast Mariners players, staff and supporters.
