The CENTRAL COAST MARINERS have been knocked out of the FFA CUP in their overnight ROUND of 32 clash...for the second straight year to a state based side.
BLACKTOWN CITY stunning the yellow and navy 3-2 in front of a small but vocal crowd at SEVEN HILLS.
Gosford-born former A-League striker JOEY GIBBS netting a BRACE for City.
The Mariners were humbled 12 months ago by Green Gully in a loss that ended then Coach Tony Walmsley's time at the club.
