"Proud moment" for Cam

Jet at Suncorp Stadium - fitting reward for a great season.

Coach Cameron Millar put aside the disappointment of last night’s grand final, to speak of his pride in the Moreton Bay United players and club.

Hundreds of Jets fans filled bay 302 at Suncorp Stadium, many in club shirts and colours, to support the senior men against Gold Coast Knights.

Many felt key decisions did not go our way, but standing on the pitch after the final whistle Cameron insisted: “It’s a great day for this club.

Gesturing towards the fans he added: "Just look into the stands … it’s a really proud moment for me.

“This group of players has built this culture. They’re all on board and it’s a special night regardless of the result.

“I thought it was a spirited second half. One down at half time is tough against a team that doesn’t lose a head.

Disappointment etched on some faces, but this was only Jets' third grand final appearance.

“But the boys fought, we made some changes, we tried and we went down swinging.

“We had some half chances and they just didn’t fall for us. Another 10 minutes and it might have been a different story, but that’s the way it goes.”

From just escaping relegation last year to NPL Qld runners-up and grand finalists this season has been a remarkable achievement.

“We’re progressing," Cam said, "we’re continuously working, working hard to improve. It has been a good season.

“This (grand final) probably wasn’t part of the plan nine months ago. We had a two-year plan to get the team into the top four and I was confident we could do it.

“But this group of players rose to the challenge and they fully deserve to be here tonight.”
