NewsMail - - SPORT -

The Wide Bay Buc­ca­neers have added two coaches to their set-up as the club pre­pares to play in the new Queens­land Pre­mier League next sea­son.

Coaches Ash Brat­ton and Con­nor Gor­don were an­nounced as the un­der-16 boys and un­der-13 boys coach re­spec­tively on Fri­day on the Foot­ball Queens­land Wide Bay Face­book page.

The duo, both from Bund­aberg, come with plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence.

Brat­ton is a for­mer coach of the men’s and women’s Dig­gers team with Gor­don play­ing last sea­son for


Bingera in the Wide Bay League.

Gor­don said he is look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity.

“There’s a lot of tal­ent in the age group,” he said.

“I can’t wait to get into tri­als in Oc­to­ber.”

Brat­tan said there’s a lot of re­spon­si­bil­ity to be put on him, but he’s pre­pared for it.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited about this new prospect of work­ing in the QPL and de­vel­op­ing Wide Bay’s fu­ture path­way gen­er­a­tion of kids,” he said.

Tri­als for both sides will start next month ahead.
