Reddy Wins Mariners Medal

  • Reddy Wins Mariners Medal

Liam Reddy has capped a stellar first season in the yellow and navy with the club's highest honour - being awarded the Mariners Medal for the Player of the Season.

Reddy was personally responsible for keeping the Mariners in many of their fixtures during the A-League season, where his exceptional reflexes and sharp reactions kept the most impressive attacking assets at bay both domestically and in the Asian Champions League.

The man affectionately nicknamed 'Rocket' came to the Central Coast on a one-year zero tolerance contract after impressing with NSW State League club Sydney United 58, and has since signed a two-year extension to keep him on the Coast until the end of the 2015/16 season.

After de-throning Justin Pasfield for the 'number one' position in Round Five, Reddy never looked back as a string of performances at the highest quality made him an immediate fan favourite in Gosford.

The award caps off a remarkable return to Australia's football elite for Liam, who only two years ago saw his career in tatters when the sky blues terminated his contract in May of 2012. Reddy attempted to resurrect the ashes of his career in Iran, before returning to Australia to play with Sydney United.

Club coach Phil Moss was on hand to award Reddy with the prestigious title, along with goal keeping coach John Crawley - both of whome showed huge faith in the gloveman when no-one else would, and Rocket was sure to pay particular thanks to Pasfield for pushing him to be his best throughout the 2013/14 campaign.

Reddy is the ninth player to recieve the award, and finds himself in prestigious company after joining players such as current Socceroos Mat Ryan and Mile Jedinak to have won the award.
