From the Technical Director.
Welcome to our visitors from Gold Coast United, Lions FC and Eastern Suburbs, as our Senior Teams, NPL and SAP are all at home this Sunday.
Our young ladies make the journey to The GAP on Saturday, as they continue their rich vein of form.
We welcome everyone back after the Easter Break, although only the juniors managed to take some much needed time off.
Our U18’s & Senior Men’s both played this week V Peninsula Power, whilst the U20’s fixture was washed out.
We had a fantastic turn out for the girls trials in the Easter holidays, most clubs taking the opportunity to take time off, not at The Fire, we continue to plan and prepare. Any girls that missed out on trials can apply to come in when training commences on 7th May 2019, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The announcement of Bolton Wanderers heading to the Coast in July to stage a week long camp, Bolton are a well-established EFL Club, and contrary to media speculation are now in new hands and are making progress in their quick return to top flight English football.
Danny Clarke and his team who are actual Academy coaching staff, will be putting players through their paces throughout the week, and again contrary to peoples beliefs / comments, the camp is not marketed as a trial, please click here to register your child. Limit spaces, and spaces filling fast.
Further speculation and media coverage this week about the clubs potential inclusion into the National Second division, further information surrounding this will be communicated via our media department in due course, although a lot of information at this stage is confidential.
Trials for our Junior boys team commence in 2 week time, any parent / guardian who has not already registered their child can do so on the email address www.sunshinecoastfc.com.au
We are also delighted to announce another major club sponsor / partner, please keep your eyes peeled this week for the announcement.
This weeks featured club sponsor / partner is P’Nut Street Noodles in Kawana!
Enjoy the football,
From Our Head Coach
I’d like to welcome Gold Coast United players, staff and supporters to what will hopefully be an entertaining afternoon of football.
After a short Easter break, we were back in action against undefeated Peninsula Power mid week and although the result went against us in the end, I thought we took some real positives from the performance.
It was great to see new signing Reece Dalton score on his league debut, we also had our Captain Scott Ferries return for a twenty minute appearance after a long lay off and it was also great to see us create plenty of chances against a very good side. In the end we were very unlucky not to grab a result, but the performance should give our players some confidence moving into the second half of the season.
This afternoons opponents are having a good season and will be looking to play Finals football. We will have to be at our very best to grab a result that we desperately need. If we can play with the same type of desire and intent as we did vs Power then I believe we will give ourselves every chance to grab some important points.
Enjoy the game,
It has been a tough couple of games for the boys with back to back draws against Redlands and Power. In the second game, we went down to 9 men for the last 25 minutes but did superbly to hold onto the 2-2 draw.
Although not the results we wanted, what fantastic learning opportunities for our players. Problem solving and dealing with the odds stacked against you, can only make you more resilient and add a different layer of experience to your game.
As much as we all want to win and make finals football, there is always a silver lining in every game. Win, draw or loss.
We go into this Gold Coast game looking to improve on our performances and we can’t wait!
