MORETON Bay United chairman Greg Bradley singled out the juniors’ success in his report on a "challenging season" at the club’s AGM this week.
Six of Jets’ eight junior sides made finals in the 2019 season which “bodes well for our growth into the future” said Mr Bradley.
“Our Under 13 Girls and Under 14 Boys both won Premierships and the Under 13 Girls were successful in their grand final,” he added.
“2020 will see our junior boys’ teams compete in the top tier of the newly-structured Football Queensland Junior competition.”
Jets’ women were close to honours finishing runners-up in the Premiership and Grand Final, while the men finished 11th and Under 20s were seventh in their leagues.
Treasurer Tony Dooley said the club’s finances met expectations over the year and said additional fundraising next year will come from an planned art union raffle.
The Jets’ board of directors will be made up of those listed below. Wayne Hawthorn has been nominated as Senior Vice-President pending ratification by the Albany Creek Excelsior (ACE) committee.
Moreton Bay United is working with sister club ACE on improvements to the Brendale and Wolter Park facilities which will benefit all who use the grounds, said Mr Bradley.
This year Brendale has seen new dugouts installed, portable goals, safety netting and grant funding or floodlight upgrades on the junior and training fields.
Members of the ACE management committee will soon be talking with Moreton Bay Regional Council about getting more fields at Brendale to ease the burden on the existing fields.
Council is also planning to move the boundary of the beach volleyball centre beside Field 2 at Brendale giving space for shaded seating, which will be a grant priority.
Jets' chairman Greg Bradley thanked the club’s board members and volunteers or their hard work saying: “Without you the club simply does not exist.
"While we are a time-poor society I would like to encourage anyone who has time to lend a hand. We are always looking for more support and this will enable the club to prosper further.”
