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

Saturday the Nerang Prems played at home and won a very convincing 4-0 against Souths United - a Haul to newcomer Kane Lincoln.
The Academy of Football lads Max, Ethan, Michael, Harrison, Josh and Henry all made their debut for Nerang in the Prem game against
Sideline commentary from AFA players watching said the boys played:
On Saturday 11th February saw a number of the AFA boys make their debut in Seniors Football playing for Nerang Soccer Club against Burleigh Heads Soccer Club. Sam did an awesome job down the side, Dion won the ball on a number of occasions, and Gaby had a number of good runs down the pitch. Juan one of our AFA coaches played alongside the lads, his fast and accurate kicking got Nerang out of trouble several times. It was great to see from the side lines.
As a spectator, I got to hear the 'sideline' noise and both sides felt the boys held their own and did a very good job. It was mentioned a few times that last year when they played against this team Nerang got 'flogged' 5-0, the score on Saturday 1-0 to Burleigh.
A chat after the game with a Burleigh Senior Player said that he was 'impressed the the class of football the boys played'.
Congratulations to the boys and the AFA Coaching Team - you should be very pleased with yourselves.
