Cian Cuba joins Gold Coast United for season 2019
Attacking mid-fielder, Cian Cuba, is the latest addition to the Gold Coast United Men’s squad for 2019. The Gold Coast local is looking to add a creative spark to United’s attack and coach Kristian Rees believes the twenty year old has all the right attributes to succeed in the National Premier Leagues competition.
“Cian is an exciting prospect for GCU,” Rees confirmed.
“I first noticed Cian a few years ago in the Gold Coast Premier League and I could see some good attributes.
“I’ve always kept an eye on him and he’s showing the maturity and discipline to make the most out of his football.”
“He’s been working very hard throughout the pre-season and has a big desire to learn and do well.
He’s been showing some excellent signs so far, I’m expecting him to have a big impact in his first year in the Men’s NPL competition.”
“I’m excited at the prospect of pushing good young local Gold Coast players like Cian on.”
Cuba has plied his trade for a raft of Gold Coast clubs and has previous NPL experience as a junior with the Palm Beach Sharks. Most recently he was part of Mudgeeraba’s Premier League squad and is looking to take his game to the next level.
According to Cuba, “Kristian was a big part of why I decided to come to United.”
“He spoke with me and told me his plans for the club and told me he could help me grow as a player and develop my skills in the NPL.”
The young attacker brings a creative edge to United’s attack as well as an eye for goal and is a dab hand from dead ball situations.
“What I am looking to bring to the squad is my creativity and my passion for winning and goals and plenty of assists.
“My personal goals are to develop as a footballer and take my game to the next level and have fun along the way.”
Cuba is another young Gold Coast player returning to the NPL competition after stints playing in the Gold Coast Premier League.
His next chance to shine on this stage is on Sunday with United involved in the Inter City Cup final against NPL newbies, Eastern Suburbs.
