    Well done Nath must be going well what Position Did you have him playing, good kid hard working and must only be 18. Let's hope nambour can stay around as I'm sure he and his family is what Nambour need for the next 10 years.

    Seriously - if this is the case then the AFLQ really need to look at 2016 structure of north and south. if it doesn't become more ability than geographical then the powers aren't fair dinkum or have their heads stuck deep in the sand somewhere

    QAFL clubs receive funding boost
    [​IMG]
    Posted on Monday, 9th November, 2015

    AFL Queensland has reinforced its commitment to investing in the future of the state league competition and grass roots football; announcing that grants have been issued to all Queensland Australian Football League (QAFL) clubs.

    Each of the 10 QAFL clubs has received a grant to be used across a variety of areas that will continue the growth of clubs, both on and off the field.

    Each club has worked closely with AFL Queensland to devise a strategy for grant spending that satisfied the requirements, with a focus on sustainability and growth.

    The grants will be used to help advance the clubs in areas such as facilities, match day operations, sponsorship, education and welfare.

    AFL Queensland Football Operations Manager, Craig Millar, said the grants will ensure the continued advancement of the state league competition.

    “It’s fantastic that we can give all QAFL clubs these grants to help them continue to increase their operations and facilities,” Millar said.

    “The QAFL is the top state league competition here in Queensland, so it’s vitally important that it continues to go from strength to strength each year, and we believe the strategies each club has presented will do that.”

    Clubs will begin implementing projects funded by the grants in 2016.



    What about QFA North clubs? Shouldn't it be based on need?

    Said this on the QAFA site JD - reckon this logic is fine. The QAFL clubs need to be strong as they are the stepping stone for generation of draftable footballers out of this state. Sounds harsh but what happens at the rungs below is definitely important but not as important as what happens at QAFL level. $20K will be good for upgrading some facilities that need over hauling I would think plus employing quality coaching staff.

    The money should be allocated to facilities or training apparel/equipment only.
    No use spending it on players if the money isn't there the following season to keep them.
    Although I'm Sure players would be happy if the grant went to the trip away fund!

    I wouldn't worry so much about the clubs spending it on players.

    There are multiple clubs in QFA and a few in QAFA that probably spend more on players than half the QAFL clubs.

    Those are the clubs that are kidding themselves...

    Caloundra's B&F results:

    1. Jye Storen

    2. Jordan Barrett

    3. Travis Gardner

    Jye had an out standing year at fullback keeping some of the comps best forwards very quiet week in week out, including leading goal kicker Luke Faulkner. Young Jordan was given the license to run and carry and use his elite kicking skills and decision making, watch this kid 18 years old but plays like a 200 game senior player really impressive. Travis had another great season taking a real leadership role in the back half of the oval and keeping some very good key forwards goalless defiantly a future club captain.

    Will be interesting to see what AFLQ do with Nambour pulling out of QFA north 2016. Surely we cant have a 6 team comp

    Its an absolute disgrace Big E. They will not be replaced. While we run with 6 teams the south will have 10. Maybe time the clubs got together and demanded more. Whats more our competition and no offence to her, is being run by someone from surf club background. The competition was once a vibrant, competitive and well run comp, but now seems to be a neglected orphan! The administrators make up the rules on the run to please themselves and pay lip service to our clubs. Very hard to 1. Keep players interested in playing against so few sides and 2. Bring in new ones. Nambour were always going to pull out and Aflq knew it, you would think a smart organisation would have a contingency plan in place!

    The obvious solution is relegating a few teams back to QAFA A and merging North and South

    Agree an absolute disgrace that there is 6 team comp (second tier of the State League) and a south comp of 10 teams. The writing has been on the wall for 2 years that the struggling clubs will want to pull out, with AFLQ hoping that the comp will even itself out. In two years Kedron and now Nambour have fallen by the wayside. It seems AFLQ are really only interested in supporting and listening to the QAFL and QWAFL clubs. It is time they listened to all the clubs and restructure the competition.
    It is time to get the top 8 to 10 sides from north and south QFA comps and form Div 2 of the state league and have the promotion and relegation system as per the Victoria. It is the only way to create a strong senior AFLQ competition. Plan A hasn't worked, I hope they have a plan B or C.

    My guess is AFLQ will find it easier to run with the status quo, make a lot of excuses and hope that it works itself out.
