Zwaanswijk loses NYL job

Central Coast Mariners wish to alert its members, fans and media that the Club has parted ways with former Hyundai A-League star Patrick Zwaanswijk as its Foxtel National Youth League (NYL) Head Coach for the 2014/15 season.

Zwaanswijk, who enjoyed three stellar seasons for the Club as a player between 2010 and 2013, took charge of the Mariners’ NYL side following his retirement from a long and illustrious professional playing career last year.

However, with the Club currently undertaking a review and revamp of its youth football structure, the decision has been made to create a new and more comprehensive youth development position under the title of Head of Youth Football.

The Club’s Head of Youth Football will be responsible for the coaching and development of the Mariners’ Foxtel NYL team, oversee the Club’s youth scouting network, and take charge of the Club’s Academy pathway as technical director.

The Club will seek to fill the position of Head of Youth Football as soon as possible, however only after a thorough recruitment process.

Central Coast Mariners thank Patrick Zwaanswijk for his services to the Club over the past four years.
