Jets' timely boost

Brooklen Williamson who is back in training with Moreton Bay United.

Moreton Bay United have received a triple boost – two on and one off the pitch - ahead of tomorrow’s big match against SWQ Thunder at Wolter Park, kick-off 4pm.

Brooklen Williamson, who initially signed for Jets at the start of this season, has now completed her university studies.

The central defender was back training this week with Jets where her NPL career started before joining Mitchelton under 18s last season.

Alongside Brooklen was midfielder Tasha Perez, who has been out injured for a month missing four games.

The return of both against SWQ Thunder would bolster the ranks after last week’s worrying injury to Sarah Head, which caused the match against Mitchelton to be abandoned.

Sarah, who has been playing in midfield, suffered a head injury trying to clear a cross just moments after being moved back into defence.

She spent the night in hospital and three days recovering, but was back watching training on Thursday night. However, it may be too soon for her to play.

“I don’t remember much of Saturday’s game,” said Sarah, pictured left at Brendale on Thursday, “I do remember people around me calling my mum and dad, but I was pretty out of it on Sunday.

“I do appreciate everyone’s support. It was really good letting my parents know what was going on because they are in Townsville.

“Everyone’s been looking after me and checking up on me which was really good of them."

All eyes now turn to Sunday’s encounter with Jets looking for their first win of the season against a side just one place above them.

SWQ Thunder’s points came from successive 1-1 draws at the QAS and Easts. They have since lost to Gold Coast United, Logan and Souths.

Jets Under 18 Girls have drawn four of their last five games and are sixth on the ladder ahead of Sunday’s match against Thunder, who are 11th, also at Wolter Park at 2pm.

Canteen and bar open. COVID rules apply - sign-in, sanitise and main social distance.
