Ins & Outs: Young gun promoted for Mariners clash

Head Coach Robbie Fowler has locked in his extended squad for Saturday’s meeting with the Mariners at Suncorp Stadium (4pm KO).

Young Roar defender Izaack Powell has been promoted to the first team squad for the first time this Hyundai A-League season. The 17-year-old played six matches last campaign but has missed the majority of the opening part of the season on duty at the FIFA U17 World Cup.

His inclusion alongside fellow U17 World Cup representative Jordan Courtney-Perkins means the Roar’s two youngest ever Hyundai A-League starters will be in the squad together for the first time ever.

Midfielders George Mells & Rahmat Akabri have also been promoted to the squad after missing last weekend's fixture against the Nix.

The Roar are unbeaten in their last 15 Hyundai A-League matches against the Mariners and will be keen to extend that run on their return to Suncorp Stadium where they are unbeaten in the last seven against Central Coast.

Don't forget, after full-time of Saturday’s game, you’ll be able to get on the pitch alongside the players and fans for our Whole of Club photo!
