1985 Reserves Grand Final bloodbath. The bloke about to assist our player on the deck is the current President Perko. Find out a bit about Perko


Season 1996: Week 12 was played as a blockbuster on the Queen's Bitrhday Monday. 25 metre penalties instead of 50ms for the first time. Felici and BA contributed 11 of our 15. Meanwhile, down south, the Saints v Bombers  was abandonned with 20 minutes to go when the lights failed at Waverly. In a first for the AFL/VFL the game was 'finished in two 12 min halves the next Tuesday.

How the hell he is going to get upstairs is beyond us.

What The?

Just when we thought that Hawthorn couldn't come up with a worse jumper......

We are informed that Pierce Fitzgerald, one of the Magoos players who turned it on yesterday, is a Rugby Union man from Bond Uni. Friend of Sharpie's. And he is game to play next Sunday.

"Rugby League is a simple game played by simple people. Rugby Union is a complex game played by Wankers." We, of course, would never use the term 'game' to describe either mob activity.

Makes All-time Brisbane Lions team. Tink is in the best 6 forwards alongside the likes of Brown and Bradshaw. Click here for the full team.

Information is a wonderful thing. We had Colt Curtis Glover down with a broken leg. Wrong. It was his ankle.
And fellow Colt, Al Rayner, who has been racking up the sausage rolls also busted his ankle. Surgery last Monday.

Joel and his partner Zoe are returning to the Cabbage Patch. As they say in the classics, 'Zoe is with child' and is heading for familiar and familial support networks. We wish them all the very best and a Catter for 2034.
Joel has only been with us a short one and a half seasons and his games total does not do justice to the respect he demands as a player and a bloke. Injury and a quiet nature delayed his initial selection in the seniors but once in, he wasn't going out for any reason except further injury. A seriously good footballer, tough, fair and very efficient with his possessions, and fantastic to watch win the contested ball and deliver to a team mate. Will be missed and hopefully the Mexican weather down south will get the better of them, and they come back to us. Daffy J, 16 games, 40 votes in senior B&F & 17 in Reserves B&F 2015.

AFL ROUND 14 TIPS (Second Bye Round)
Bye Bye North, Woods, Zorkos, Blues, Saints and Suns

Micah now knows that the jaw can be dislocated. 'Ouch' through clenched teeth could be heard back at Broadie. As could the leg of young Curtis Glover when it broke - he had backed up after the Colts to help out the Twos.

The dreaded 'lurgi' hit our playing stocks. Senior administrator Wayne was issuing player permits just prior to the Magoos game. The most noteable was issued in the name of Alex Lobbianco, who then debuted in the side he was coaching. We have no word of on field performance, perhaps he remained on the bench lest a substitute be required, but having the 'loose man on the bench' was a cagey tactic.

After reading the article on Perko, a longtime club supporter responded with the following:
"... I lost a son tragically in 2003.!!!
I learnt to deal with this in many different ways and one of those ways was involvement with a good footy club, with good people, and a good culture, regardless of the gameday, footy team finishing last on the ladder or just missing finals , or being Premiers.!! And the Broadbeach footy club and its people bring that unspecified peace to me..."
It is amazing what footy clubs can mean in the bleakest of times. That is a wonderful testament to the Broadbeach Footy Club. That's genuine community football.

AFL H of F
One of our longtime supporters recalls Nigel Lappin running around in a Broadie jumper circa 1994. Anyone else smoke the same tabacco? Could well be, was drafted in late '93 and as John Barker did (1997), may have had a run at Broadie easing his way into the Zorkos. It wasn't mentioned it at the induction ceremony!!
STOP PRESS: Nothing doing on Lappin. Barker, Bradshaw, Chapman, McRae yes. We have their stats for 1997 (1st year of QSFL) and beyond.

With mention of Broadbeach way back when Lachie starred for us in defeating the SUNs. Click here.

Andrew Boston is leading the NEAFL's MVP

The Cinammon Hut has vacated the premises. We wish Kumar and his family all the best.
The way is now paved for Mario's to start their big-time renovations
'al fine di preparare i migliori piatti della cucina italiana'.
During this 2 - 3 week period Mario's has offered the service of a special delivery system to the club for guests wanting to have lunch or dinner.
Menus from Mario's will be at the ordering desk and the friendly bar staff will gladly take your orders and ring it through, and, hey presto, a maximum of 30 minutes for delivery.
Buon appetito.

Monday night is Mario's night. Where will the players meet for July's Monday Marios night once they are the in-house caterers at Broadbeach Sports Club?

Get ready for a noisy crowd, they are having a Home-Coming.
BWFC : Coolanngatta v BWFC 6.45pm at Cooly

Good day out for the Catters. Not a pleasant road trip to the vast, windy and cold spaces at Sandgate. And the Colts went the extra click to Alexandra Hills for the close one of the day and came away with a good win.

2pm Sandgate v Broadbeach
Senior Squad: 
  Mullins,O'Donnell, Nelson, Nibbs, Dineen I, Palmer,  Quick (c),  Dienjes D,  Dienjes R, Chadwick Hawk, Lancaster,  Nutting,  Neal, Sharp, Upton,  Backman,  Searl, Rolfe, O'Shea,  and Finn
INs: O'Donnell, Nelson, Nibbs  OUTs: O'Rourke, Fitzsimmons (inj), Platell (inj)
DEBUT: Liam Nelson. Great climb through the ranks from the Colts to Twos to Seniors in one season. Congratulations Liam.
Billy O'Donnell returns for his 2016 debut having played one in 2015 and welcome back Nibbsy.
Broadbeach  14 15  def Sandgate  7  10  52
Goals: B. O''Donnell 4, B. Neal 3, J. Strong, J. O''Shea, T. Rolfe, L. Nelson, N. Upton, M. Backman, J. Sharp
Best: B. O''Donnell, R. Finn, M. Backman, B. Neal, J. Royes, J. Searl
Billy O'Donnell the story here we're guessing, alongside a youthful line-up. Apparently Mitch Backman also enjoyed the spaces and was his best effort for the season. Reading between the lines, got to hand it to BA and the troops for enthusiam and effort.

11.30am Sandgate v Broadbeach
Magoos Squad: 
  Price, Chadwick Dylan, Malone, Kennedy (c), McCaulay, Tiffin,  Edwards, Sharp, O'Reilly, Brewer, McCormick, O'Keefe, Pecotich, Macauley,  Dempsey-Che, Essam, Fitzgerald, Fulton, Kavic, King, Klessens, O'Rourke, Stollery, Wallace, Winder, Wilson
INs: Dempsey-Che, Essam, Fitzgerald, Fulton, Kavic, King, Klessens, O'Rourke, Stollery, Wallace, Winder, Wilson OUTs: Nelson and O'Donnell to the Seniors, plus the rest.
From Lobba: "It has been a challenging few weeks for the club with the injury list and a few blokes pursuing other interests, but credit to the guys who have dug deep for the club and their team mates. The colts and young men of the club are continually demanding respect with the way they go about their footy and their attitude towards the club. All credit to them as it is them setting the foundations for the future. On the road this week up to the wide open spaces of Sandgate which will require the same work rate of the under-manned side of last week."
Worth the road trip just to watch Fults if indeed he plays.  Luke Dempsey-Che and Mitch Kavic back from the Hollywood Hills.
Broadbeach 17  16  118 def Sandgate  6  9  45

Fults turned it on in the final stanza when the old bloke should have been in bed. Finished with 4 goals 6 behinds! Good to see Taser back with a vengance and Brad O'Reilly continues his eye-catching form. Pricey has made a habit of heading up the 'best' list lately, and The Bus is the best skipper in the comp!

6.45pm Coolangatta v Broadbeach  at Cooly
Bristow, Bright, Bijkerk, Cooke, Collins, Daniels, Davis,  Harper, Ffewkes, Gross,  Harris, Filmore, Marsh, Lotter, McClelland, Mirfield, Scott, Klyn, Turner

Fults, 637 and the past
Noticed the Bully hopped on Fults re his Robina comeback. Reminded us of the day he went in front of Ray Hughson to become second on the all time QAFL goal kicking ladder.

1996 Personalities
2016 celebrates the twentieth anniversary of footy's holy grail - a ThreePeat in one day! In 1996, our farewell season to the Gold Coast Australian Football League, our Seniors, Ressies and Colts won flags on the hallowed turf of the Cattery. The photo in the slider above is the senior squad of the day. Click here for an expanded view with names attached. Crank up the zoom.
We have also developed a self explanatory summary of the 1996 season in four parts. In them you will find familiar and legendary names associated with the club. A good read will get your knowledge of this rare achievement up to speed for the reunion. Click here for Part I, here for Part II, here for Part III, and here for Part IV. You may need to zoom to read the newspaper clippings.
Part I references a 1996 Grand Final Day Cats Whisper. Click here for selected pages of that document with August and Sept lead-in scores, goals and best players for all three grades.
If you have any memorabilla, particularly of the Ressies and Colts, let's know and we can add to our archives. Any discrepancies between documents, archives and memories may be attributed to the Bully, alcohol or tired eyes of today's or yesteryears' generation.
