NO QUESTION ON MOYO’S COMMITMENT
THE commitment of Brothers striker Mary Moyo cannot be questioned.
One of Football Queensland North’s leading goalscorers in the Premier League women, Moyo spent most of the season travelling back home from Ingham to play.
But that has been made even harder over the last month after the striker was handed a placement at a hospital in Brisbane.
Moyo was kept on the bench to start the grand final against MA Olympic a fortnight ago in a move that turned plenty of heads.
Brothers’ coach Steve Mcnaughton denied it was a tactical decision, and instead had a simple answer for it.
“She flew in from Brisbane only a couple of hours before kick-off,” Mcnaughton said. “We didn’t get time to train with her or work on tactics and work on opposition during the week.
“Having her start on the bench bought me time to chat with her and for her to see the game and the pace of it.”
Moyo will do the last-minute arrival for the Crad Evans Plate final against Edge Hill United on Saturday, flying direct from Brisbane to Cairns.
“She is that type of person who is committed and will give it her all for the team,” Mcnaughton said.
