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.
A windy destination as the Mariners road takes them to Wellington to face the Phoenix, but not before some dinner table entertainment from Patrick Zwaanswijk. The ups and downs of trans Tasman travel becomes evident as a low fog grounds the team in NZ’s capital only days before Xmas. In return, some of the team’s elder statesmen enjoy a rare lunch in the sun, and discuss the season, their futures and the impending pressure of being the League’s top team.
