WOMENS TEAM COACHES + 2 WOMENS TEAMS AT LMFC IN 2020

Logan Metro FC is super proud and excited to announce Michael Ulstad as our women’s team head coach and Branden Turepu as his assistant coach.
The duo led our u18 boys academy in 2019 to their Grand Final and are committed to growing our women’s program, a priority of the LMFC committee in 2020 and delivering success on the field and off it

I’m excited for the opportunity LMFC has presented me with. I’m confident that with my experience on the pitch and development as a coach I can improve not only our players skill set but thier knowledge of the game.

Locking in Bran as my assistant was a must for me and with our success from last year we know we can continue to build and improve the women’s program and presence at the club.

I’m looking forward to the challenge and am hoping to see a lot of new faces who want to improve their game and be part of a team.

Kate Pursehouse will continue in the role as our women’s coordinator and is passionate about growing women’s football at LMFC.

We’re so pleased to have locked in Michael and Branden to our women’s program. After a successful year coaching the under 18 boys academy and leading them to the grand final, they hope to strengthen the quality of the women’s team and push for promotion, as well as attracting new female players to the club. Bringing years of experience with both coaching and playing, I look forward to seeing them in action and taking charge of our women’s program.

This year, Logan Metro will be registering for 2 teams in the Women’s City League competition so there will be plenty of opportunities for all players of all abilities to come and play for this amazing club.

The club is looking at having 2 women’s teams in 2020 for the first time! A team with a competitive focus and the other team with a more social focus, allowing the club to cater for female players of all abilities.
