Rowles: The future is promising

-

Kye Rowles is in his third season at the Central Coast Mariners and believes the club’s young players are setting them up for a promising future.

The Mariners may have one of the youngest squads in the A-League but they are bolstered by some seasoned professionals.

It’s the experience of those senior players that Rowles said were a massive help to the squad.

“You always need a couple more experienced guys that have had a career for a while now and they help us young boys a lot,” he said.

“Whether it’s to do with on or off the field, they are massive helps every day.”

Along with the likes of Ziggy Gordon, Matt Simon and Tommy Oar, the Mariners have former Matildas’ coach, Alen Stajcic leading the charge.

Since he has come into the Mariners, Stajcic has instilled his beliefs and values in the squad and Rowles believes it has improved the side.

“In the change rooms, he set out how he wants to play from day one since he has been here and the boys have bought into it,” he said.

“I think that’s the reason why we have been a bit better this year.”

Rowles is not the only youngster to step up at the club, with Sam Silvera and Joshua Nisbet making a name for themselves, and the defender is adamant the club has promising years ahead.

“All these young boys coming through, if they keep getting game time and playing how they are playing, I think the next few years could be very promising,” he said.

“If we can keep the core group of young boys and build around them, I think it’s looking very promising for sure.”
