CATS SCRAMBLE TO VICTORY
Another close victory at home for the seniors as a youthful Broadbeach were too good for the Gorillas. Opening the game with a Mitch Brewer goal it was all the cats for most of the game. A massive hit to Liam Nelson saw him take no more action in the game but has been released from hospital and is feeling well. Broadbeach felt in control against the grange even when only leading by 3 points with 2 minutes to go in the last QTR but it was a Josh Searl goal that got the cats over the line!
The reserves were outclassed, the colts keep their undeafeted streak and put on their best performance for the year with a crushing 55 point victory. The Broadbeach Women's side also remains undeafeted after smashing Aspley by 82 points! Go Cats!

CATS CRUSHED BY LIONS
Palm Beach were too good for a lackluster cats yesterday at Salk Oval. The seniors were too slow and made poor desicions seeing them lose in the end by 10 goals. The boys have a bit of work to do with coach Brett Andrews saying its time to make a few changes. The reserves blew a 14 point lead at QTR time to go down by a couple of goals. But it was the colts who were victorious over a good outfit in the PBC Colts. Our Womens topped off the day gain with a W on the Sunshine Coast when they defeated Pine Rivers by 42 points and remain on top of the ladder! We are back at Ord Minnett Oval next week when we take on Wilston Grange.

FAREWELL PART 2.
As Rick has handed over the reins, Myself and the entire Broadbeach Football Club would like to thank Rick for his 10 years of website service. Rick a Broadbeach Life Member, excellent tipster and a trusty timekeeper has built many relationships with Broadbeach members be it past or present. If you see Rick around the club a simple 'thank you' would give him the respect he has deserved after his service. Thanks Rick!
We have handballed the website to younger and more competent hands (Matt Littlechild).
As a parting gift we were going to go out with Tiny's break out on the pen 'n ink. He hadn't had a drop since he had a 'turn' the night of Harry Kennan's wake but his first training session saw double digit stubbies in the bin. But instead we decided to go with something softer - these days the average AFL footballer has a tad more than one testicle. Think about it.
SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED
Broadbeach FC is pleased to announce the signing of Evan Panozza for season 2017.
Evan played the 2016 NEAFL season with Southport and previously captained the Casey Scorpions in the VFL.
Evan brings great leadership and skill to the club and is professionalism personified. If you see Evan around the club please make him feel welcome.
COACHING DIRECTOR APPOINTMENT
Travis Marsham, ex recruiter for the St Kilda football club and over 170 games under his belt as senior coach at Cora Lynn, Gembrook & Ellinbank, has been appointed as Coaching Director. We probably need one given we now have 8 on deck.
The Bond practice game (25 Feb at Bond) will be live streamed. No doubt the Film and TV School are involved. Details to come.
