Mariners release Dutch midfielder Brama

Former Dutch international midfielder Wout Brama has left the Central Coast Mariners after just one season with the Gosford club.

The 31-year-old made 22 appearances for the Mariners in the 2017/18 Season, scoring two goals and providing one assist.

He had a year to run on his Mariners deal but the club has agreed to release Brama to return to the Netherlands.

Brama has signed with his former club FC Twente, where he previously played between 2005 and 2014 where he won the Eredivisie in 2010 and the Dutch Cup in 2011.

"That we are playing in the first division next season is a weakness, but that did not play a role, so we have to get the club up again", said Brama on the FC Twente website.

Brama has also played for PEC Zwolle and FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.

In a statement, the Mariners thanked Brama for his efforts during his time at the club.
