Striker on the move

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL: Sun­shine Coast’s Ja­cob Ful­luck has linked with Pre­ston Lions in the Vic­to­rian sec­ond tier, af­ter im­press­ing at Beer­wah Glasshouse in the Sun­shine Coast league.

The tal­ented young­ster has pre­vi­ously had stints at More­ton Bay and Sun­shine Coast Fire in the Queens­land com­pe­ti­tion, and with Penin­sula in the Bris­bane premier divi­sion.

Now he’s set to test out his skills in Vic­to­ria, where his club is press­ing for pro­mo­tion into a well-re­garded state league.

Beer­wah Glasshouse coach Daniel Carew, who helps play­ers pur­sue op­por­tu­ni­ties at higher lev­els, said the striker was head­ing there with more ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt.

“He’s ob­vi­ously grown,” Carew said.

“We’ve had him for two years and we’ve de­vel­oped him a bit more, and men­tally he’s more ready for it.

“It will be good for him to go down there and prove him­self in Vic­to­ria and if he can do what we think he can do he will shine down there hope­fully.”

Ful­luck scored 19 goals from 15 out­ings last sea­son and had four goals from as many matches this sea­son be­fore head­ing south.

Carew said Ful­luck im­pressed Pre­ston Lions when he tri­alled and he hoped the for­ward could make the most of his chances there.

Mean­while, Beer­wah Glasshouse fell to a 1–0 loss to Caloun­dra at Meri­dan Plains on Satur­day night.
