Mariners, FFA not worried about pay woes

Central Coast and Football Federation Australia aren't concerned about the financial status of the A-League club despite their failure to pay employees on time last week.

Players and staff were not paid last Friday as scheduled, though it is believed they will receive their wages on Monday or Tuesday.

Mariners chairman Peter Turnbull downplayed any concerns.

"It is accepted that each of the A-League clubs run at an annual deficit," Turnbull told AAP in an email.

"We have various contingencies to manage this throughout the season, and unfortunately on this occasion we have been a couple of days late."

Another Mariners official said staff had been paid three days early for the past six to eight months.

He said the Mariners had recently made a $750,000 payment to the Australian Taxation Office for monies to be distributed to Mariners employees.

A-League boss Damien de Bohun wasn't fazed by the Mariners situation.

"Central Coast Mariners have been going through I guess some different issues in terms of their ownership which we are working through," de Bohun said.

"From our perspective, it's just something that's gone out by a couple of days and (will) get resolved very quickly."

Asked if he thought the club were close to resolving their ownership issues, de Bohun said: "Yes there's no question about that".

Turnbull didn't hint at any imminent resolution.

"Central Coast Mariners Football Club continues to seek investment from interested parties, including from within our own shareholder base," Turnbull said.
