New signing Linden Farr has gone back to his footballing future.
The 22 year old’s decision to join Moreton Bay United has reunited him with Royce Brownlie and Richard Greer.
All three were at Logan Lightning in the FQPL for two years, before Royce and Richard moved to Jets as coach and assistant coach.
Linden followed to the northside this week and is looking forward to the challenge.
“Everything was pretty positive playing under Royce as coach last season,” the midfielder said. “That’s how he keeps it.
“I didn’t think I was having the best pre-season at Logan and thought it would be a positive move to step back up to the NPL.”
Linden first played at senior level with Olympic, when he was 18 before switching to Logan in the newly-formed FQPL.
He finished last year in the Team of the Season alongside new Jets’ colleague Emryn Donnelly-Fagan, who was at Mitchelton, among five subs. Carter Glockner, also at Mitchelton but now with Jets, made the starting side.
“Linden will bring energy and enthusiasm to the side,” said Jets’ coach Royce Brownlie, “he has great potential, like a number of the boys here.”
Despite playing one tier below the NPL Men, Linden has been watching Moreton Bay United's progress.
“It has always appeared to be a strong club with a strong team. Big players,” he said, “I know a number of the boys from juniors, so I don’t think it will difficult coming in.
“But I’ll have to work my way into the team - and earn my spot.”
Linden’s NPL Men’s career began in 2016 when he played 26 games, scoring three times across Olympic’s Under 18, 20 and Senior sides.
In 2017 he played 25 times for Olympic’s Under 20 and Senior Men before making 37 appearances in 2018-2019 at Logan scoring six times.
