2019 President's Message
What a great weekend of football to commence the 2019 season. The Junior Competition teams kicked things off on Friday night and it was great to see all the Miniroos kids buzzing with excitement at Palm Drive on Saturday morning for their first games of the season with smiles on their faces.
The Gladstone Football Community also celebrated Female Football Week with BITS hosting double headers for both 1st and 2nd Division Ladies teams on Saturday night.
I'm very pleased to report that the club has grown substantially this year in both Junior and Senior participation.
This year we are fielding 25 junior teams for kids aged from 5 to 16 years old, as well as 7 Senior teams with our 3 Ladies teams and again returning to having 4 Men’s teams with 2 CQ Premier League teams and 2 local Men’s teams.
Accommodating all the new teams and having everything ready to start the season on the weekend would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication and passion of our fantastic committee and I would like to thank them for the time they volunteer to ensure our club continues to prosper.
Developing our junior players is a priority for the club and this year we are focused on providing increased support to our coaches as well as an age specific structured training program to take the skill level of our junior players to the next level and assist them to reach their potential.
We will also be announcing details on our Academy Program for 2019 soon so stay tuned to our Facebook page for details.
Results in 2018 were excellent with our junior U14 Pumas and U16 Falcons teams making their Grand Finals which we hosted, and the Falcons becoming the Premiers for 2018.
Our Senior teams also had a very successful season with all but 1 team making the finals and our Ladies Black team making the 2nd Division Grand Final.
Most of all it was great to see all our teams playing in the spirit of the game and with great comradery which are the values our club was founded on.
Central FC really is a family club and that sentiment has never been stronger.
I'm looking forward to the great season ahead and another year being a part of this fantastic club
