Football Queensland Wide Bay (FQWB) can today announce the Men’s and Women’s squads for the Central Coast Intercity Cup.
Drawn from the top-tier Wide Bay Premier League (WBPL) Men’s and Women’s competitions, the squads will take on Football Queensland (FQ) Central select sides in a double-header at Frenchville Sports Club this Saturday, 1 May.
Coaches from both sides were able to select their squad from the pool of players participating in the WBPL. Players were nominated by WBPL clubs who voted for their best 11 from players in the league and five players from their own squad to be put up for selection.
Wide Bay Men’s Head Coach Michael Johnson said he was excited by the prospect of being involved in the tournament.
“It’s something new and innovative, which is what we need in this area,” said Johnson. “It’s a privilege to be part of a squad of the best of the best currently available.”
Will Rudken said he was “over the moon” to be appointed head coach of the Wide Bay Women’s select team.
“This will be my most important role yet as a coach. I’ve coached junior representative in Mackay but this is another level,” said Rudken.
“With the talent I have in Wide Bay, can I bring them together and get them to play some nice football? That will be the task.”
