Womens FQPL2 in 2022
2021 was a learning experience with the move into the BWPL and the step up was as expected, no easy feat. However, the squads and performed admirably and came out with some impressive results in a disrupted Season. 2021 should see the sides develop further and consolidate their position in the top Brisbane Women's League.
Brook Martin takes on the Coaching role with Tony Kirchner and Manager Andrew Crawford, along with the continuing support of Kate Lawson and Steele Tallon as Female Football Director to ensure the continuing growth of female football at the Club.
