With the ASN GCPL and Coast League One seasons set to return this weekend, we spoke to all the coaches on how they have prepared for the resumption and much more! We continue by speaking to the Head Coaches of Musgrave and Kingscliff, Jason Shultz and Ross Fenech!
Musgrave- Jason Shultz
Musgrave will have their eyes set firmly on promotion when they return back to the field in the shortened Coast League One competition. Coming close in many years gone by will have the Mustangs raring to go and prove why they deserve to be in the Premier League moving forward.
Head Coach Jason Shultz was happy with how his side came back from the break and said it was a welcomed outcome overall.
“We had a chance to unwind during the break and come back fresh and with a clear focus. The boys continued to work hard individually and maintain their fitness so it was an easy return for our squad,” said Shultz.
The Mustangs have had a positive return from their friendly games heading into the restarted competition and will be looking to build off those games come this weekend.
“I was very happy on how the boys played in the two games and we will now be looking to hit the ground running come this weekend. We know the start will be very important and we will have to try maintain that level throughout the whole season,” said Shultz.
The Mustangs return to the field this weekend when they play Runaway Bay.
Kingscliff- Ross Fenech
Kingscliff Wolves will have their tails up as they look towards building off their first game of the season upon resumption of the 2020 competition.
With a big win in Round 1, Head Coach Ross Fenech said his side was eager to return back to the field and continue what they started.
“It is fantastic to be back out on the field. We spent a lot of weekends wondering when the games would be back but now that it is upon us, it is fantastic for us all. The boys have kept fit throughout the whole time and I am happy with the level they are at,” said Fenech.
The preparation for the upcoming return has been fixed for the Wolves, with a few injuries and additions flowing throughout the squad.
“We lost a few players during the break but we managed to gain a few along the way so it was definitely a interesting time. We are switched on and ready to push for the top two spots,” said Fenech.
Consistency will be paramount for the wolves this year and they will focus on continuing off on their good start.
“We want to have teams chase us and not the other way around. If we can keep fit and injury free, we will give ourselves every opportunity to wins most games,” said Fenech.
The Wolves return back next weekend when they play Tweed United.
