Country United had a successful 2011 season with five teams in the senior competition qualifying for the finals. Our 3rdDivision Men’s team ended the season with the Minor Premiership and then went on to win the Grand Final, our 2ndDivision Men and 1stDivision Women made it to the semi-final round and our 2nd Division Women made it into the Grand Final. The Youth (U16-17) were Minor Premiers and made it to Grand Final day.
The club continues to build its junior base providing them with a pathway into the senior competition without having to leave their club. This year, several players achieved the MRFZ representative teams to complete in Townsville and Cairns. Each year several players also achieve selection into the Junior Players League which is a developmental program for those players who are able to dedicate additional time to the sport. The club is supportive of these programs as it welcomes these players back into teams once they are ready to return to club games.
County United Soccer Club recently received a grant from Sports and Recreational to repair damage to our home ground at Western Suburbs Rugby League Club at Walkerston following the rain last year. This work was carried out in conjunction with the Rugby League Club to achieve the best facilities in the area.
The club is currently recruiting players to allow it to field a Premier Men’s, Premier Women’s and 1stDivision Men’s teams in addition to its current teams for 2012 season. This is the result of previous years work from players and club management setting out a defined pathway for the club to grow, benefiting its members within the Pioneer Valley.
