The curtain fell on Gold Coast United’s 2021 National Premier Leagues season yesterday with the holding of the Senior Presentation at the Currumbin RSL.

 

Among the distinguished guests were Laura Gerber, State Member for Currumbin, Garry Nucifora, Executive Director of Sport at Bond University; Andrew Parkes, Chairman of Football Gold Coast and Anthony Farr, President of the Legends Football Club Gold Coast.

Also in attendance were long-serving GCU Board member Richard Watkinson and newly appointed Adam Cain and his partner Kylie.

 

Riley Thomson King capped an outstanding season receiving the Michael Thwaite Cup as the club’s 2021 Men’s Player of the Year.

Eloise Weston etched her name on the Faye Rodd Cup for the third consecutive season as the Women’s Player of the year.

 

Paul O’Brien was recognised by his peers as the Men’s 2021 Players’ Player as was Eash Norrie on the Women’s side.   

The 2021 Rising Star awards went to Eli Hughes and Claudia Danckert, both shone for their senior teams in 2021 and their futures look bright.

 

 

With a crop of talented younger players emerging from the the U18 & U23 Men and the U23 Women’s ranks, season 2022 holds much promise.
