Rogic and Zwaanswijk sign new Central Coast Mariners deals

Official release from Central Coast Mariners

Central Coast Mariners' chances of success in the 2012/13 Hyundai A-League season have been handed a further boost, with boom youngster Tomas Rogic and experienced Dutch defender Patrick Zwaanswijk committing to the 2011/12 Premiers for a further campaign.

Rogic and Zwaanswijk both played an instrumental role in the Clubs' success last season, the former bursting onto the professional scene with a string of standout performances and the latter proving his class with seven goals in 29 A-League games from left stopper.

"Tomas is one of the brightest prospects in Australian football, a player who could have an outstanding career if developed properly," Mariners head coach Graham Arnold said.

"Tommy believed staying at the Mariners was the best thing for his personal development and with a full pre-season we believe he will be a key player for us next season."

On Zwaanswijk's re-capture, Arnold said: "Patrick wanted to play another season and we wanted Patrick to remain a Mariner. He has proven in his two seasons in Australia so far that he is one of the best foreign players ever to play in the country. We know and expect Patrick will give us the same level of performance next season as he has in the past two years at the Club."
