We’ve picked out the key players to watch who may be the difference makers for the FQ Central sides this Saturday.
Women’s Players to Watch
Having already scored 17 goals in only three CQPL matches, hailing from South Carolina Kallie Peurifoy from Central FC will be keen to continue her goal scoring form and wreak havoc on the FQ Wide Bay women’s defence.
Joining the in form Peurifoy to bolster the FQ Central sides attack is Mookie House from Nerimbera FC also scoring an impressive 10 goals so far this season.
Clinton FC’s Georgia Muir will play a key midfield role while also being handy with the boot scoring nine goals this season. Combining with Muir will be Shelbi Vienna-Hallam from Central FC who will aim to capitalise on the team chemistry with fellow team mate Peurifoy to service the dynamic forward.
Men’s Players to Watch
Sharing the CQPL Golden Boot award in 2020, Central FC’s Garth Lawrie will look to bring his good form from the CQPL to the representative stage having scored four goals in three matches so far.
Paired with Lawrie up front will be Liam McLean from Bluebirds United FC notching up an impressive tally of 14 goals in the CQPL last season.
Playing in behind the dynamic pair up front will be Ryan Hawken from Frenchville FC in the attacking midfield role who will be looking to service both strikers up front.
