President Note

Thank you and Merry Christmas

Dear Members,

As we come to the end of what has been a very challenging year we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support and provide a brief update.

We had a great start to 2020 with Brisbane City Council committing to fund the construction of a new club house but unbeknown to us major challenges were to follow just a few weeks later.

As with all other community clubs COVID was a huge test for us. Football Brisbane provided great support to all clubs as did local, state and federal government. For us though it was the support from our members that made such a difference which we very much appreciated then and will remember going forward, this support was key in getting us through.

As you have seen over the past few weeks we have made some significant announcements regarding our football programs which is recognition of what our football department has built over the past several years. These include being awarded NPLW, FQPL2 and SAP licences, all being state level programs for women, men and juniors. Although all great achievements I want to take this opportunity to reiterate that the clubs vision and philosophy of providing quality football opportunities for players of all abilities in our local community will not change and these licenses will only add to the pathways available for our community.

We have received development approval for the new clubhouse which is another big milestone in what seems a never-ending approval process. As previously mentioned, Brisbane City Council have provided funding for the build and we will be looking to raise funds for the fit out including canteen, social area, medical room, office and additional fittings for the home dressing rooms via tax deductible donations. 

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that I have come to the end of my term and therefore stepping down as President. It's been a pleasure working with so many people who have contributed to the success of the club. I would like to thank our staff, the committee (past and present), coaches, managers, other volunteers and members. The AGM will be held early in the new year, details of which will be provided as and when available.

Finally on behalf of the club I would like to wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and all the very best for the new year

Many thanks
