Dominant force in Far North football
SINCE 1993 when it rains, it pours for the Bulls, as they have been the dominant force in Far North Queensland Football and North Queensland Football.
Mareeba Bulls were Premiership winners in 1993, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2014 and in 2015.
They were named FNQ Grand Final Champions in 1999, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2014 and 2015.
The mighty Bulls have gone on to claim the prestigious NQ Crad Evans shield (North QLD Champions) in 1963, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2014.
Two of the Bulls’ most successful exports have been Wayne Srhoj and Nicolas Panetta.
They have both gone on to represent our country at U17 level, both scoring goals in their respective world cups.
One of the finest moments was Srhoj, as a 17-year-old, stepping up and scoring from the penalty spot in the 1999 World Cup final in New Zealand.
Despite Srhoj scoring his penalty, Australia lost on penalty shootouts to Brazil.
Most recently, Panetta scored two goals against powerhouse Argentina in last year’s U17 world cup.
The Mareeba Bulls aim to continue to raise the bar when it comes to offering its members a club where they feel as one with the club just as much as the players, supporters and committee.
The club is keen and focused on continuing its efforts in producing an environment where kids and adults alike are able to enjoy the sport they love, and at the same time learn and develop as players and people. MAREEBA UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB DEVELOPMENT COACH —
