Matildas champion Kyah Simon has signed with the re-relaunched Central Coast Mariners for the 2023/24 A-League Women competition in one of the biggest signings in the league’s history.
‘I’m really pleased to have signed for Central Coast and to be back here in Australia playing in the A-League. Mariners being my first A-League club in the inaugural season, they’ve always held a special place in my heart and it’s a real full circle moment for me,’ Simon said.
‘The closer I came to this decision, the more it felt right for a number of reasons, coming off a really difficult 10 or so months it was a priority of mine to be somewhere I felt supported and to be in an environment surrounded by the best medical care and resources.
‘I can’t wait to get out on the pitch with the girls and hopefully can help the team in any way I can in making this season a special and memorable one.’
