Matt Simon returns home to Central Coast Mariners

Matt Simon has returned to pre-season training at the club where he learnt to ply his trade.

Simon made his A-League debut with the Central Coast Mariners, and is back after being part of Graham Arnold’s outstanding Sydney FC unit.

“I’m coming back with a lot of experience and hopefully I can help some of the young blokes here. We just want to get the club back to where it belongs.”

The striker had the fortune of playing alongside three current Socceroos in his earlier stint at the Mariners, and is proud of the way Tom Rogic, Mile Jedinak and Trent Sainsbury have kicked on.

“You could always tell with Sains, Mile and Tommy that they’d play at the highest level. Really excited, really proud to say that I played with them.”
