Signing news: Mariners sign ex-Glory defender

Central Coast Mariners have confirmed the signing of Jacob Poscoliero until the end of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season. 

The defender re-joins the club after parting ways with Perth Glory on Tuesday night. 

Before making the move to Perth Glory, the 27-year-old defender made 47 appearances for the Yellow & Navy between 2014 and 2017.

Poscoliero will be available for Sunday's clash with Western Sydney Wanderers at Central Coast Stadium. 

Poscoliero made eight appearances in the A-League with Glory this season, including six starts. 

Upon his return to the Central Coast, ‘Posco’ said that he was delighted to seal a return to Gosford. 

“I’m thrilled and delighted to be able to put a Mariners jersey back on,” Poscoliero said.

“It was really hard to leave this club where I made many great friendships and formed close relationships with the Central Coast Community and Mariners’ supporters.

“I can’t wait to get back to training – I’ve really missed both the coaching and style of play here at the Mariners and I am very grateful to be given this opportunity to play under Paolo again,” Poscoliero said.

Poscoliero will wear number 19 for the Central Coast Mariners.
