Last week saw over 50 junior football teams converge on Mackay for the inaugural FQ Community Cup. Players from age groups U12 to U16 took part in the week long event with the chance for some to impress selectors and be chosen to represent the 2018 U13 and U14 Boys Country State Teams. These teams will compete at the 2018 National Youth Championships in Coffs Harbour from Monday, 24th to Friday, 28th September inclusive.
Three players from CQ, two based in Gladstone and one from Rockhampton, either made the teams or were selected as shadow players. The players and their clubs are: U13 Team – Tiaan Engelbrecht (Central); U13 Shadow – Tyler Wetzler (Bluebirds). U14 Shadow – Cooper West (Clinton). Congratulations to all three players and to everyone that took part in the carnival. Here’s to next year. Thanks to Bill Webb for the picture (attached and below) of the U14 FCQ Team featuring Cooper.
