LMFC PARTNER WITH CARTER CAPNER LAW

Logan Metro Football Club is excited to announce local law firm Carter Capner Law as the club’s Principal Partner for season 2015.

Following Carter Capner Law’s support as a minor sponsor last season, the firm have re-committed to the club in an increased level of support.

As LMFC’s Principal Partner, the Carter Capner Law logo will feature prominently on the front of all club jerseys, displaying the partnership clearly at every LMFC match.

LMFC President Samuel Escobar was delighted at the announcement.

“Carter Capner Law came into this community around the same time we did, so the growth of our club in many ways has mirrored the growth of their firm,” Escobar said.

“After a very successful partnership in the role of minor sponsor last year, we’re very excited to see Carter Capner Law step up their commitment to the club as Principal Partner for season 2015.”

“Both LMFC and Carter Capner Law are organisations that exist for the Logan area and those who call it home, making this partnership a perfect match.”

Peter Carter, Managing Partner at Carter Capner Law, also expressed excitement about the new arrangement.

“Carter Capner Law is delighted to be able to provide support and strengthen our relationship in 2015 with LMFC and the Logan community,” Carter said.

“As a firm that fights for the rights of the Logan people, there is nothing more important to us than the local community – a value that we know LMFC shares too.”

With claims as high as $3 million having been won for his clients, Peter Carter and his firm are an impressively high calibre supporter of the club and are further proof of how quickly the club is rising both on and off field.

The news comes at an exciting time for LMFC, with what promises to be a very successful 2015 season fast approaching.

LMFC JOINS STAND AGAINST RACISM

Logan Metro Football Club have today announced their support of the national ‘Racism. It stops with me’ campaign being led by the Australian Human Rights Commission, with promotion and education to form the key pillars of the club’s involvement with the campaign.

With the club constantly looking for causes to support as part of its community-minded nature, ‘It stops with me’ was a campaign very appealing to LMFC both for the superb work that has been done already through it, as well as LMFC’s strong multicultural nature.

Being a club proudly from Logan and representative of all the different cultures in Logan, the importance of the message behind ‘It stops with me’ is one that is incredibly important to all members and supporters of the club.

A number of LMFC players approached the club’s committee last season about their passion for the club to be proactive about racism following incidents in professional sports and the media, with the committee agreeing wholeheartedly that supporting the stand against racism was something the club should do on an official level.

As part of its support, the club will feature the campaign logo on all club jersey sleeves next season, including the men’s and women’s sides and the club’s academy.

There will also be signage around the ground at LMFC’s home matches to emphasise the importance of the campaign’s message during matches.

LMFC president Samuel Escobar is a strong supporter of the campaign’s objectives, and is glad to see the club officially become a supporter.

“Being a largely multicultural club, the message of the ‘Racism. It stops with me’ campaign is one that is very important to all of us at LMFC,” Escobar said.

“We’ll not only be supporting the campaign through raising awareness, but also by educating our players on racism and making a stand throughout the season.”

“Racism in sport and the wider community has to stop, and we are proud to be able to play our part in making that happen.

LMFC MOVING TO A NEW HOME

With construction soon to begin at the Logan Metro Sports Complex, Logan Metro Football Club will in 2015 be temporarily moving to Compton Park in Woodridge.

Compton Park will act as the home ground for LMFC from the start of the 2015 pre- season through to the point in which the Logan Metro Sports Complex is ready to use again.

The sports complex, which is undergoing a multi-million dollar refurbishment and will also play host to the Brisbane Broncos’ Logan Academy when completed, will provide top-class facilities for Logan.

In the meantime, however, Compton Park is a ground rich in history and one in which LMFC President Samuel Escobar says the club is honoured to call home.

“Compton Park is a great venue which has been a home of football in the area for many years, and one which we can’t wait to adopt as our own,” Escobar said.

“The park acted as a training venue for the Under 21 Uruguay national team in 1993 while they were in Brisbane to play Australia as part of the FIFA World Youth Championships, and now hosts a variety of community football, a great deal of which features multicultural teams which makes it a perfect venue for us.”

“We owe enormous thanks to the Rodelu club for being so welcoming and supportive of our football club and the Logan City Council for their support in the transition.”

“We can’t wait to engage with the community in the area and prepare for an incredibly exciting 2015 season.”

The Rodelu club, based at Compton Park, are also thrilled to see the club move across. “We’ve heard great things about LMFC and are very excited to be housing them in 2015 and helping the club grow,” President of the club Nelson Santa Cruz said.

LMFC GROWS STRONGER WITH NEW APPOINTMENT

As preparations continue for season 2015, Logan Metro Football Club is today excited to announce the appointment of Adrien Fitzpatrick to the role of Strength and Conditioning coach.

Fitzpatrick brings with him a wealth of experience with qualifications from UQ, ECU and the ASCA, with a CV that includes roles with several clubs across a number of different sports, most recently the strength and conditioning coaching position with the Logan Thunder WNBL team.

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining LMFC and becoming a part of the growth of this club,”Fitzpatrick said of the appointment.

“Strength and conditioning plays a big part in the success of a football team, and I can’t wait to get started with the club’s players over the pre-season building up to a massive 2015.”

“I’m particularly excited about working with the raw talent that the club’s academy has identified, as adding a solid conditioning foundation to their exciting natural talents could be exactly what they need to take the next step in their development.”

LMFC Head Coach Pat Castillo echoed Fitzpatrick’s enthusiasm.” This appointment shows that we mean business on the field,” Castillo said.

“We’ve done many great things off the field and in the community which have been well publicised, but the next step in our club’s development is to really focus on building the best football department in the area and attracting quality players from Logan and beyond.”

“Adrien’s appointment will ensure we’re able to give our players the best chance to reach their full potential, and will be an enormous boost to our club’s credentials and capabilities”

Fitzpatrick will predominately work with the first team as well as the club’s academy to develop fitter and more powerful players, while also working with the ladies side and the club’s other sides throughout the pre-season.
