Spotlight on CQFC future in public presentation tomorrow

RAY Wood wants Central Queensland to know what CQFC is all about.

As the 2014 National Premier League soccer season approaches, Central Queensland Energy coach Wood is eager to spread the word about the competition around the region.

In a special presentation, Wood and CQFC CEO Steve Grant will share their vision to work together for the future of football in CQ with the local community.

Wood invited anyone interested in learning more about the club to join CQFC members and players at Harley Davidson/Stellarossa tomorrow night from 5.30pm. "It's open to the general public and anyone in the local football community or community in general is welcome," Wood said.

"It's an educational night on the National Premier League and CQFC and what we're about and the make-up of our board."

Wood said the night would include an overview of the NPL, the introduction of the FFA Cup in 2014, the CQFC Mini Academy, scholarship opportunities, sponsorship opportunities and how CQFC, clubs, players, parents, sponsors and supporters can work together for the future of football in the region. "We will be talking about our junior development and mini academy and it's a chance for people to get to know some of our board members and players," he said.

In further CQFC news, the Energy had its first pre-season clash last Thursday night against reigning CQ Premier League side Frenchville where they went down 3-1. The two teams will face each other again this Saturday night at CQUniversity at 7pm.

Wood said new senior players would be joining the squad by the end of the month while the mini academy was blossoming with 80 juniors already involved.
