Central Coast Mariners axe seven players after woeful A-League season
A-League wooden spooners Central Coast are set for a major recruiting drive after axing seven players, including New Zealand international Storm Roux.
Roux, who played 105 games with the Mariners in four injury-hit years, has been released from the final year of his contract to pursue his career elsewhere.
Matchday regulars Roux, Liam Rose, Blake Powell and Peter Skapetis, as well as fringe players Jacob Poscoliero and Josh Bingham, have also been released.
Goalkeeper Tom Glover, who joined on a one-year loan deal from Premier League side Tottenham, has also ended his time at the Mariners.
Glover played four games for the A-League side.
Just 14 players now remain on the Mariners' books -- meaning the exodus comprised of exactly one third of the wooden spooners' squad.
Central Coast finished at the bottom of the ladder with four wins from 27 starts.
