We are delighted to see the return of St Andrew’s Football Club in 2016. The club will play in the Sunshine Coast Federation Competition which plays each Saturday morning in Term 2 and Term 3.
Last year was absolutely superb and we are looking to enter teams at U6,U7,U8,U9,U10, U11, U12 and U13 age groups. We are also looking to nominate U12 Girls team, U14/U15 Girls. Hopefully we will see lots of boys and girls playing for St Andrew’s Football Club in 2016.

Our football families in 2015 were absolutely incredible and we look forward to more of the same in 2016. Clubs and Sport organisations rely on the invaluable help and support of volunteers.

The club is evolving because of the huge interest in Football, so hopefully there is lots of support to get the St Andrew’s Football club progressing in 2016.
