Memories as a player
As a player I was described as having deceptive pace. I was 3 yards slower than I looked!
Football is about giving back and working together to improve opportunities for all young players. I’m part of a great group of individuals at GCU working hardto establish the best possible pathway for young players on the Gold Coast who want to take their football to the next level. The Club is also verystrong on establishing links with Community Clubs.
