Disgraced goalkeeper has signed a one-year deal at the Bluetongue Stadium.
Liam Reddy admits he owes a debt of gratitude to Central Coast Mariners for handing him the chance to resurrect his A-League career.
The experienced shot-stopper has penned a one-season “zero-tolerance” deal at the Bluetongue Stadium and returns to Australia’s elite division after a year away following his sacking by Sydney FC in April 2012.
Reddy will face a battle with current Mariners first-choice Justin Pasfield to be number one during 2013/14, and the the 32-year-old intends to reward head coach Graham Arnold and goalkeeping mentor John Crawley for providing him with the platform to resume life as a professional footballer.
“I acknowledge that I have made mistakes in my life and football career, and as such I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Mariners for providing me the chance to make amends and prove that I still have plenty to offer the Hyundai A-League,” said Reddy on the club’s website.
“This is my last opportunity to play at the elite level in Australia and I intend to make the most of it. I have a zero-tolerance contract at the club, and give my guarantee that I will work hard to not only win over the fans but repay the faith that Graham, John and the Mariners have shown in me.”
