Moreton Bay United’s pre-season will enter new territory this weekend.
Jets are making their debut in the Inter City Cup as one of four clubs entering teams from Boys Under 13 to Senior Men.
Hosts Rochedale Rovers, Brisbane City and Coomera, from the Gold Coast Premier League, complete the quartet at Underwood Park on three successive weekends from January 18.
Senior Men’s coach Royce Brownlie welcomed the challenge. “The Rochedale Tournament is a great opportunity to play against some good teams at a good facility,” he said.
“We have some exciting new players at MBU and with a new style this tournament gives us a chance to explore and test ourselves - and hopefully prepare us for the first game of the season.
“Playing three games every Saturday leads us nicely into the start of the (NPL) season which kicks off on Feb 8-9.”
Jets’ Technical Director Matt Poole said the competition’s format was appealing.
“It is a great opportunity or all our teams to undertake the same pre-season schedule at the same venue,” Matt said.
“This not only suits our whole club approach, but also ensures our teams have a strong pre-season games schedule leading into the season.”
