Stephen Roche has today been appointed the Central Coast Mariners- inaugural Westfield W-League coach, nearly two months out from the late October kick off of Australia’s new elite domestic competition for women.

The 41-year-old, who is a member of the Australian Coaching Council and holds an AFC ‘B- License and is currently completing his AFC ‘A- License was delighted to learn of his appointment and is eager to contribute to what is an exciting new era for the Mariners and for football in Australia.

“I am absolutely delighted about my forthcoming duties with the Central Coast Mariners in the Westfield W-League,” said Roche.

“It is important that we assemble a competitive squad, which will in turn generate bigger crowds and public interest as the competition evolves.”

Currently heading the football program at the Knox Grammar School in Wahroonga, Roche has also held a position as NSW Country Women-s state coach, having taken a number of its teams to various National Championships over the past few years.

Roche believes that his appointment as the Mariners- Westfield W-League coach has pushed his personal achievements to new heights, as he continues to develop his coaching career at an elite level.

“It-s the biggest step you could possibly take as a coach – being part of Australia-s elite women-s competition,” said Roche.

“It-s all about building a solid foundation with the squad and getting the best out of the team in what will be an exciting year for the women-s game.”
