Mariners re-sign Bojic, add Anderson

Central Coast Mariners have re-signed full-back Pedj Bojic, while and confirmed the acquistion of former Gold Coast United defender Zachary Anderson.

Bojic enjoyed a standout year for the yellow and navy in season seven of Australia’s top flight, contributing to the Mariners’ success with six assists and two goals from 27 matches, and is now signed on til the end of season 2013/14.

“It’s satisfying to know that I’ve got my contract sorted and that I am staying at the Club that I have been at for so long,” the 28-year-old said.

“I’m looking to take my game to another level next season. Extra hard work is going to be put in place, and I’ll be looking at polishing off areas of my game where there needs to be more consistency.”

In a further boost for the Mariners’ defensive stocks, Anderson signed a two-season deal to become Graham Arnold’s first new recruit for season eight of the Hyundai A-League.

“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity,” Anderson said. “I’m very lucky that the Central Coast Mariners and Arnie have given me the opportunity to go down south and work under their guidance.”

“(Arnold’s decision to stick with the Mariners) was one of the biggest reasons why I have signed. First and foremost though, the club has had some great success and all the signs are looking as if that success will continue.”
