Sasha Kuzevski & James Bayliss
Like Harry Steele, our two other Ambassadors played for Terrigal United Football Club as youngsters.
Sasha Kuzevski played in Orange and black starting at U8 through to U11, before being approached by a Central Coast Mariners scout to make the move to rep football for U12. After a brief stint in Sydney (1 year at APIA1 year at Marconi), Sasha returned to the Mariners where has continued to develop into a key academy player. Sasha now trains with the A League squad and made his debut off the bench against Sydney FC in January 2022.
Meanwhile James Bayliss was a member of our club from U6 to U7 before moving to Darwin. Upon moving back to NSW, James spent a year with the Jets before returning home to the Central Coast Mariners. After 7 appearances in 2021/22, James was given a scholarship to train with the Mariners in 2022/23.
