Friday 16 March – Roar 2 GCU 0

A good crowd on hand at Lex Bell Oval to watch a very good Roar NTC Women’s side defeat the GCU Women.

According to Coach, Michael Cook, “this is the first time this season that we played at the desired intensity for the full 90 minutes.”

Echoing Captain Neesa Doyle’s sentiments, Cook praised the defensive effort of his side, still missing key players, Ellie Fryer in defence & Dee Thompson in attack.

“A determined & disciplined effort from all players meant that the Roar found it difficult to create scoring opportunities.”

Debuts for new players Phoebi Clissold (18) & Phoebe Cave (17), both talented teenagers. Welcome to GCU ladies.


This week – away at Walton Bridge Reserve vs The Gap on Saturday at 6pm.

NPL Girls also away at the Gap on Saturday – check your coaches for times.



Saturday 17  March – NQU 0 GCU 1

The Men continued their resurgence with a strong win away in Townsville. Nick Panetta scored the game’s only goal.


This week – at ‘home’ v Magpie Crusaders at Meakin Park on Saturday at 7pm. This game being live-streamed.


Sunday 18  March 

NPL Boys & Youth Men travelled to Yeronga to face Olympic. In oppressive, sticky conditions all teams performed very well.


This week – no scheduled fixtures for the NPL Boys & Youth with ‘in-house’ games proposed. Check times with your coaches.


SAP Boys & Development Teams also made the trip up the M1 to face Olympic and were outstanding, continuing to impress with some quality football and great attitudes and enthusiasm.


Here’s some edited highlights from the previous weekend, GCU U10 Sap v Logan at Robina. Enjoy!
