CENTRAL COAST MARINERS GRAND FINAL WEEK!
How lucky were we! On grand final eve, the A-League Golden Boot, Grand Final Player of the Match and all round superstar Mariner Danny McBreen paid a visit to RAMS HQ last Thursday night.He handed out loads of drink bottles, signed heaps of autographs and had a chat to the players about the dangers of illicit drugs.He then went on to win the grand final. We must have given him some inspiration! Well, we’d like to think so anyway. :-)
The Mariner’s have won the ‘toilet seat’ and aren’t we happy about that! Everyone will want to have a look and get a photo. A couple of junior Rams, Angus and Cam got in early and have already had a special photo taken to treasure for ever.
At the Mariner’s awards night Joe Avvenevole was delighted to have a photo opportunity with Daniel McBreen, our very own David Booth from Booth’s Motor Group and ‘that’ magnificent trophy.Great work boys.
We’d like to thank the terrific sponsors that enabled us to purchase the shirts. You will see their logos on every shirt so please remember who they are and support them whenever you can.
NEW PLAYING STRIP

Not all the action was at Rams HQ last Sunday. Our 12As were busily winning the major prize at the Kariong Gala Day and our U9s, with some help from new Mariner Flores, won the Gosford Gala day. Well done everyone!

The new car on offer from Booths Motor Group for a hole in one didn’t go off but in all other regards it was a hugely successful day. Central Coast Mariners stars Josh Rose and Mikey McGlinchey joined us and showed they can hit a ball as well as kick one. The chilly start turned into a
REUNION & CLUBHOUSE
To say the committee were stunned by the amount of interest in our reunion day would be a huge understatement. We took the opportunity to show off our newly renovated clubhouse and everyone one was very impressed with what we’ve done.It was a delightful day with members past and present, young and old and many others dropping in to have a look with several finding a photograph of themselves or some memorabilia that revived memories and brought many happy smiles to faces. The reminiscing went on all day, all 3 grades had wins in front of a bumper crowd and the day was an enormous success. Many were insisting it should be an annual event and we agree so watch this space.
We have already secured the minor premiership in a few grades so far and it is very exciting indeed. Well done to the M35Cs and MAA10s. The MAA6s below is another success story. Congratulations boys!
Two young Rams (Nathan and Callum) who have served their club with distinction were selected to participate in a clinic run by Manchester United at Pluim Park on Monday. With Fred the Red keeping a close eye on proceedings, representatives from all 23 clubs enjoyed a morning with the superstars. And yes, the guy with the trophy is employed by Man U just to look after it when they take it on tour!
beautiful winter’s day and some pretty good golf was on display (along with some dodgy scoring we think) The eventual winners on the day were Team Cowell who cleaned up. Congratulations boys, we trust you’ll be back next year to defend your title!

The Rams are please to support awareness campaigns for several causes, particularly those that are cancer related. You may have noticed a lot of pink socks being worn by our senior women’s teams lately. It is all about raising awareness of Breast Cancer, Lymphoma and others. We’ll bring you some photos, news stories and an update on our Kate very soon.
