Scott Galloway is one of three Central Coast Mariners announced to be leaving the club following the conclusion of relevant contracts.
The 22-year-old signed for the Mariners shortly after the beginning of the recently concluded 2016-17 season following an early release from Melbourne Victory.
He signed a one-year deal upon arrival at the club in October but will not renew that deal into the 2017-18 season.
Galloway’s impressive form under Paul Okon at Central Coast earned him a trial at Eredivisie club Willem II, but a Mariners spokesperson told Outside90 the player’s departure is not related to that trial.
Galloway’s trial at Willem is ongoing.
The remaining two players to exit Central Coast are Senegalese cousins Mickael Tavares and Jacques Faty, who quickly became outcasts in Okon’s youthful philosophy.
“The Central Coast Mariners would like to thank all players and staff members who have been a part of the A-League 2016-17 season and wish them all the best on their future endeavours,” a club statement read.
As well as Galloway, Faty and Tavares, Paul Izzo, Roy O’Donovan, Fabio Ferreira, Jacob Poscoliero and Ivan Necevski have all left Gosford for pastures newer.
Club captain Nick Montgomery announced his retirement from professional football at its award night, though the Englishman will remain with the club in a backroom administrative role.
