Club Information: 2022 Floods

To our LMFC family and supporters,

Firstly, I’m hoping that you are all well and largely unaffected by these floods. If there is anything we can do to help please reach out and let us know.

Also that our thoughts are with our football family currently doing it super tough with these floods, we know the effort required to maintain football facilities and it’s so heartbreaking to see the damage mother nature has left.

The Logan Metro FC committee wanted to give all our members and supporters an update now that we’re a few days in.

– Thankfully our facility at Compton Park in Woodridge was unaffected due to where and how it’s situated.
– After an inspection this afternoon (Tuesday 1st March) we’re happy to say the fields will reopen on Wednesday 2nd March for our miniroos, women’s teams and metro men’s teams to resume training. *However the field won’t be mowed until next week.
– The facility will remain closed on Tuesday night. Our FQPL squad have already made alternative arrangements for training.
Football Queensland confirmed over the weekend that ALL games this coming weekend (4-6 March) have been postponed. Football Queensland will advise in due course the plan for the restart of games.

We’re aware and proud that a lot of individuals involved with the club are volunteering and helping their communities with the clean up. We continue to encourage the LMFC family to get out and support our great community.

Below you can find a list of resources on how you can help and volunteer-
– Football Queensland Flood Support Hub- https://footballqueensland.com.au/club-support-hub/flood-support/ 
– Brisbane City Council Mud Army 2.0- https://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/community-and-safety/community-safety/february-2022-severe-weather-event-council-updates-and-impacts/mud-army-20

As a club and committee we will also actively keep our eyes open and reach out to some of our neighbouring football clubs and communities to see if there’s an opportunity to get our full club and sponsors involved in any way possible.

Please feel free to reach out to myself or any of the committee if you have any questions or concerns.

Women’s teams coaching announcements- Michael Ulstad & Jen Dunn are back

Logan Metro FC is proud to announce our plans and coaching line up for our senior women’s program ahead of our 10th season in 2022.

The club intends to field 2 senior women’s teams in 2022 for the first time in our history.

Michael Ulstad is back, assisted by our reserves captain Branden Turepu to lead our higher team. The pair are back with unfinished business as they took charge of our women’s team in 2020 and finished the Covid interrupted season in 3rd place.  Michael and Bran know this football club well and are determined to continue building our women’s program into 2022 and beyond.

We also welcome back a legend of the club, Jen Dunn to the coaching seat as the coach of our other women’s team.  Jen managed our 2021 women’s team and is no stranger to anyone who knows LMFC having won premierships and grand finals as our women’s coach in 2016 and 2018.

Thank You Forbes 🏆

Championship winning coach Forbes Madau has advised the club that he won’t be continuing on as Head Coach in 2022.

Instead, Forbes will be moving into the newly created role of Junior Director of Coaching where he’ll create and oversee our junior development programs and coaches including ‘Komodo teams’ as well as rolling out the Football Queensland SAP Community Club model at LMFC.

In his time as Head Coach Forbes won the Capital League 1 Grand Final, made it to the semi finals of the Canale Cup and took us on a FFA cup run that saw us host NPL powerhouse club Lions FC at Compton Park which drew the biggest crowd the venue has ever seen!

Marsden State High School x Logan Metro FC

Logan Metro Football Club has proudly signed a partnership agreement with Marsden State High School, which will see the two organizations work together for mutual benefit and growth, part of which shall be the provision of a tangible pathway for players into football and quality education.

Highlights of the partnership will see LMFC have access to:
– MSHS FFA accredited football staff and curriculum
– Access to MSHS facilities on wet weather nights (pending availability)
– MSHS to support and encourage talented players who are presently studying at Marsden State High School to Logan Metro FC.
PLUS a range of other strategic benefits

While LMFC will provide MSHS with:
– access and notification to recruit the most talented players from the Logan Metro FC to MSHS.
– 2 x LMFC (scholarships) per season to be selected by MSHS and LMFC
– Priority access to hire LMFC facility for tournaments or carnivals
PLUS a range of other strategic benefits

Graham Fyfe, MSHS  Football Excellence Support Officer- “…We’ve got the facilities, the coaches, the programs,  the opportunities. But what I did notice was there was a lot of talented kids who couldn’t get to an NPL or local clubs for whatever reason, we want more kids touching the ball in good environments, It would be ideal for our kids to be at your club (LMFC), so outside of school they’re getting looked after. and when they’re at school they’re getting looked after”

Luis Melgar, LMFC Football Operations Manager- “We’ve been reflecting on the 10 years of the club (next year is our 10 year anniversary) , we’ve sat down recently on what’s next and part of that is our junior/youth base of the club. We got ourselves in a position of decent numbers in our MiniRoos and seniors. We’re now in a position to start to bring in some of these local kids through and give them access to club structure and creating good people through football.”
