Bon Voyage Joe

After over 20 years in football, Joe has decided that the time has come for him to take a break from football, enjoy a holiday and figure out where his life journey takes him next.

He will be heading overseas on March 2nd for 8 weeks to visit his family and new granddaughter.

Joe has spent many hours over the last months trialing, chasing and signing players/coaches and managers (and compiling his whiteboards of course!).  He has set us up in good stead for the season.

Upon his return, he plans to continue coaching the U14 QPL team (unless he decides to live in Scotland, you never know!).

Joe’s departure will be a loss to the club.  His technical expertise is second to none and his passion for the players has always been paramount.

I thank him personally for all the hard work he has put in, often above and beyond, and I thank him for working to ensure we are set-up for 2019.  I hope he gets a chance to relax overseas and I am thrilled that he wants to continue coaching at the club, which is his passion.  I know he believes in the club and is fully supportive of our plans for the future and I fully support and understand his decision and know it was not an easy one to make.

I have already interviewed a few candidates to replace Joe and I am hopeful that I will be able to announce a replacement shortly.  However, be rest assured that we are supported by Football Queensland/Brisbane and they will assist us with any transition period.

We will try to ensure that our handover is smooth but please be patient with us.
