Georgia's back


Georgia Beaumont has returned to Moreton Bay United.

Georgia Beaumont has returned to Moreton Bay United saying the move will give her a “good challenge”.


The 18-year-old striker was in the gold and black for three years before joining Brisbane Roar and - at the start of this season - The Gap.


But, the league has now divided into the top seven, which includes Jets, plus the QAS. Those eighth and below, which includes The Gap, form the FQPL.


“I absolutely love everyone at The Gap, everyone,” said Georgia, who scored 13 goals in the 15 games there.


"But I think Moreton Bay is going to give me a good challenge.


“I started playing for Dave (Da Silva) at 15, with Brisbane Roar and love him as a coach. I really developed with him and I feel I need that development and challenge.


“I’d like to have a chance of playing higher still, but right now I’m focussing on how I am playing and how the team is playing.


“I want to perform well and be seen as a good player - a team player and good person to play with.”


Georgia played at Mitchelton from the age of six to 12, before joining Moreton Bay United in the Under 13 and Under 15s Girls, often playing up a year.

Jets coach David Da Silva

She scored 37 goals in 20 games for Jets' Under 13s in 2016 and 13 in 17 games for the Under 15s a year later.


That caught the eye of the Brisbane Roar/NTC.


It was during three years there, that Georgia was selected by Junior Matildas head coach Rae Dower for the 2019 AFC Asian Under 16 Women’s Championships qualifiers.


New Jets’ team-mate Jorja Thomson was in the same squad and David Da Silva, pictured right, was part of the coaching team in the Kyrgyz Republic.


And it is that familiarity, seen at her first training session back in Brendale, which has already made Georgia's return to Moreton Bay United "easier".


“I played with a lot of the girls in the earlier years of my career,” said Georgia, “it’s great to see them again. Makes it easier for me.”
