Mariners' classy gesture to young De Silva fan

On Saturday evening a young Danny De Silva fan arrived at Central Coast Stadium with a sign dedicated to his favourite player. 

Little did he know, it would result in a personal invite to a Mariners training session for a personal meet and greet with his favourite player.

Through the power of social media, Oliver quickly became known to the Mariners and he was invited down to a training session on Tuesday.  

And it just so happens it was the youngster's birthday too! 

'Oli' was able to meet his hero at the Mariners Centre of Excellence and was given a signed jersey as a special gift for his birthday. 

He was also given a family pass to Central Coast's next home game against Wellington Phoenix on New Year's Eve. 

Hats off to Danny and Central Coast for a wonderful gesture.
