Tweed United have been a cornerstone in Women’s Football on the Gold Coast for a number of years.
Having had a long time battle with Broadbeach in previous seasons, the club pulled out of the Women’s Premier League competition prior to the 2019 season.
The club felt that they lost their way in the women’s program and needed to change the way it worked.
They began the season with a fresh face and a new outlook leading into the year, which President Mark Thelwall said was a must.
“We brought in Mark G as the coach our women’s program and has a lot of experience in the game as not only a coach but a referee also. He’s brought the best out of our girls especially with the age gap between our youngest and oldest player,” said Thelwall.
The new processes have improved the structure for the program, with the women creating a culture that is impacting the whole club.
“We make sure that our junior girls teams are involved as much as possible with joint training sessions. The bond we are creating are resulting in positive numbers in attendance for the women’s team,” said Thelwall.
The club plans on moving forward with extra sessions for female players aged 9-14 to further enhance the culture that the club is trying to build.
