Cummings can’t wait for the grand final against Melbourne City, but like any footballer he wants to win some silverware on the big stage
Banks had previously been appointed Mariners Media Liaison Officer and referred to the club as “his family.”
“They mean everything to me… the club is willing to give me the chance to do what I do,” he said Fox Sports.
“The Mariners, they’re like family to me. “It’s just great because I have a disability and I couldn’t have asked for much more than what they gave me.
“I can’t thank them enough for their support.”
Cummings is also buzzing ahead of the decider against Melbourne City on June 3 at Sydney’s Commbank Stadium.
He wants silverware as rumors continue to circulate that the Scottish-born 27-year-old will soon leave the A-League and take a lucrative opportunity abroad.
“If you don’t win, it’s no use,” he said. “Nothing is more beautiful than winning trophies. Nothing.’
