Neill and Cahill in investment link with Aussie A-League club



SYDNEY (AFP) - English-based Socceroos Lucas Neill and Tim Cahill have discussed investment opportunities with Australian A-League club Central Coast Mariners, the club said Saturday.


The A-League's smallest club, just north of Sydney, is struggling at the bottom of the eight-team league this campaign after losing to Sydney FC in last season's inaugural grand final and is looking for financial backers.


Club executive chairman Lyall Gorman said he has met Southeast Asian investors and has had initial talks with Blackburn Rovers' defender Neill and Everton midfielder Cahill, both members of Australia's World Cup squad this year in Germany.


"I read what they said about investing in the A-League, so we had a meeting while they were out here in late July, and we're exploring their interest to see where it might take us," Gorman told the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday.


"We haven't gone any higher or lower than that. Down the track, if there's a realistic opportunity, we'd be very keen to take it up."


Details of any possible investment were not revealed.


Neill and Cahill, key members of the Australian national team and close friends, are expected to be home again next month for two internationals against Paraguay in Brisbane and an Asian Cup qualifier with Bahrain in Sydney.

Central Coast is the fastest growing area in Australia.


45mins - 1 Hr North of Sydney, long stretching Golden beaches, a brand new stadium & 1 of Australias big Advertising magnates also a key share holder.


A far as football clubs go, this 1 wouldnt be a bad investment..Plenty of growth potential & a massive junior base of players to develop.


C/Coast is also an area many are settling down out out of Sydney & with Both Neil & Cahill Sydney boys...Investment int he club & a surf clad mansion would be a top spot to end up after football.


Though C-Coast has some of Australias best beaches...Come north & invest boys as we here in QLD have some of the best beaches & babes in the world...fuk im strating to sound like a yocal..Wheres me surf board wax?......LOL.
