Just ask Nikola Burgarcic, Nikola started training with Gary when he was 13 years old. He played football for Coomera and Nerang, then a couple of years ago he moved to play at FK Vojvodina (Serbia), he has since moved to FK Lovcen (Montenegro), then back to Serbia at FK Beocin and in 2018, at the age of 18 he signed with Louletano DC (Portugal).
As you can see from Nikola journey there are many ways to get to where you want to go. If you train hard and often, the door opens. But if you back off and the door opens and you are not there… well! Your story could be another ‘could have, would have, should have – story. Do not let that happen to you – Dream Big and Train Hard!

PARKING UPDATE 2: INFORMATION BY LUKE SORENSON
We have just been informed of some changes to our previous post. Please see new maps below.
Parking alongside the clubhouse will now be for coaches, staff and committee only. This is to ensure our coaches and staff can function correctly and timely for the benefit of all players and members during this period.
We have been told there is options to park at either of the Rugby Club's car parks, and for our players and members to use these spaces and make the short walk to the club.
From Monday the 19th of February until April 22nd 2018 inclusive, the areas of our entire western car park and flowing on to the entire netball courts will be shut down for the exclusive use of Commonwealth Games staff and crews. It will NOT be accessible for soccer patrons or any other users. The area is marked with a red border in the attached image.
The areas in Green will be open for parking and the areas in Orange will remain as either NO parking or NSC Committee/Coaches parking only. Please do not park on yellow lined areas or unsafe areas. Please do not park on any footpaths or pedestrian pathways or access points under any circumstances. Please park legally.
As there is no suitable public transport servicing our club precinct, we suggest the following and ask people to plan ahead for their training and game days.
This is unfortunately a painful interruption but nonetheless it is temporary one-off and we will resume normal parking post-Games.
PARENTS: please note there will be a significant increase in both pedestrian traffic and car traffic during this period as Games staff use our facilities. We urge you to speak with your children and take extra care during this period. Please be vigilant with supervision and observation so that our little Eagles are well looked after and don't encounter any dangers from the vehicles, roadways, extra people around etc etc. You may have to walk a little way to get to the club so please keep your kids close and cross roads and spaces with caution.
DRIVERS: Please slow down and be extra alert for pedestrians, kids and any other obstacles about the place during this period.
VISITORS: Please respect the club, our family environment and our community when visiting or using our precinct.
We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding during the time, and most of all, look out for one another of course!

The 2017 season was one that delivered great success and a positive upward surge for Nerang Soccer Club with the Eagles narrowly missing out on promotion to the local Premier League. Following on from those achievements it is with great excitement that we would like to announce our new appointments in our senior men’s coaching roster for the 2018 season.
Nevertheless, our side is young and with a growing pool of emerging talent coming through from club’s training academy – Academy of Football Australia – the future prospects for further success and growth for the Eagles are looking exceptional.

To say there is unrest in the Gold Coast Football community would have to be the biggest understatement of 2017... This has resulted in many kids floating about, unsure of where they will be playing in 2018, with only 12 weeks to go before the start of the season this is not where you want to be!
At AFA and Nerang we know exactly where we are going, we have our coaches and teams training four nights a week from now until Christmas. We will be starting up again on January 3, 2018.
We welcome you to come down to West Fields if you have been left high and dry and without a team. Many of our players, play up a year so we offer flexibility in teams, in some of our age groups we are offering multiple teams, so if you have the skill and the right attitude - come on down!
West Fields, Nerang Broadbeach, Carrara
5.00 pm to 6.30 pm (ish) Monday through to Thursday
Football Gold Coast has decided to start the season earlier to offset the down period during the Commonwealth Games.
Please see below for details. Nerang Soccer Club will be sending out sign on and registration details soon.
