GCU SAP heading in the right direction

GCU’s SAP Program is in safe hands with local, Shane Robinson, leading the team and sharing his extensive playing and coaching experience with the Coast’s budding future football stars.

A Palm Beach Soccer Club junior, Shane went on to play in the National Youth League with the Queensland Academy of Sport and was a part of the Australian U/19 Preliminary Squad.

Shane’s been a Football Excellence Head Coach since 2007 at Palm Beach Currumbin State High, a Gold Coast United affiliate school, a home to many current Gold Coast United players and a hot-bed of talented Gold Coast footballers across the years.
