Transfer news: Mariners part ways with defender

The Central Coast Mariners have confirmed that Jacob Poscoliero has accepted an opportunity to join Perth Glory and therefore will not be extending his contract with the Mariners beyond this season.

The 27-year-old defender signed with the Mariners in October 2014 and has made 47 Hyundai A-League appearances in the Yellow & Navy.

Poscoliero thanked the club and reflected fondly on his time at the Mariners.

“I'm saddened to be leaving such a great club and bunch of players, with whom I've made friendships with for life,” Poscoliero said. “I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Central Coast Mariners and its fans, for the opportunity and fond memories. 

“I wish the club all the success and I'm sure they will achieve great things,” Poscoliero said.
