The Code joins the Central Coast Mariners as they embark on the most anticipated season of A-League football in its eight year history. Over-shadowed commercially by the high-price purchases of their closest geographical rivals, the Mariners venture headfirst into the season as defending minor-premiers. But their best kept secret – the Yellow Army of supporters and the ‘marquee’ fan base – may be enough to pull the community-centric team through the challenges of the season and emerge at the summit of A-League success.
The F3 Derby gives the Mariners a chance to avenge their Round 3 defeat, against the Jets, while Coach Arnold reminds the players to focus on the result, not the event. Meanwhile the team Xmas Party gives the players a chance to mix with wives, partners and children. Mayor of Gosford Lawrie McKinna juggles a busy schedule while Pedj Bojic puts the Heart to the sword, and an recent favourite of the club returns for an overdue ovation. Former Premier League player Nick Montgomery discusses his family’s move Down Under.
