Club Chairman Bruce Atterton-Evans was very pleased with the outcome and looking forward to the club’s vision of developing young players being continued.

“We have worked diligently in strengthening the coaching component in the vital area of 8-12 years and also in our NPL program. We have looked at world’s best academy practice and continue to introduce new initiatives in sports science, conditioning and psychological area that will add to the quality program we deliver.”

“If you look at the players coming through now, you can see how important it is to deliver the quality programs at the youngest age levels as the basis for their development as footballers. The highest possible rating that Football Qld awarded us shows that they have the confidence in our ability to deliver such an crucial part of player development and we are looking forward to the arrival of our new Technical Director, Nacho Ferrer in January with his pedigree in Youth Development to implement our program.”

“Nacho, his support staff and highly qualified and knowledgeable coaching group will be providing a welcoming, rewarding and positive experience for players and parents alike and an Academy Program with the highest standards and practices.”
