Huge weekend of football with all Junior NPL Academy squads and most SAP teams returning to the park after the holidays.

Fantastic results and more importantly, great effort & commitment from all squads, coaches and parents!


SAP Wrap

The GCU girls kicked off Round 1 of the SAP competition with a very strong performance against Western Pride. Coach Joe was wrapped with the application of the week’s training.

The SAP Boys had mixed performances against a strong Moreton Bay group.

Coaches will be looking to raise the bar with training intensity this week now we are back into a normal routine after the Commonwealth Games disruptions.

Moreton Bay v Gold Coast United


Men                    4-1 loss

After drawing square late in the first half care of a James Coutts’ header, the Men were left in the Jets’ wake in the second.


Youth                  4-0 win

An outstanding performance from start to finish. The boys worked extremely hard with and without the ball and dominated the game. The team showed a lot of character to bounce back like they did after last week. Our defensive structure and organisation was superb. A great result but the clean sheet just about as pleasing!”

“We’ll double down again and train hard this week before SWQ in Toowoomba next week. The next few rounds are key for us, to pick up points and make a concerted push towards the top four. Rick Coghlan, Coach

U17                  2-0 win

The U17 Girls showed a lot of spirit to beat Capalaba. We’ve been working on pressing from the front and the girls executed the game plan perfectly.

Next step for us is to concentrate on transitional moments to dominate and control the game with and without the ball. Joe Repic, Coach

Well wishes for a full and speedy recovery to Tara Finn who snapped her collar bone in game, a nasty break.

Goal scorers – C. Burns, E. White
