“I would like to thank the club for the past three years,” Kekeris told the club’s official website.

“Coming through the youth academy then transitioning into a full-time professional with the Hyundai A-League team was a massive learning curve for me – it’s an experience that I will never forget.

“From the first day I arrived at the Mariners, I was welcomed with open arms and that’s something I will be forever grateful for.”
