NAB Sponsor Days
Thanks to NAB for their recent sponsorship of the SWQ Thunder FC home games at Clive Berghofer Stadium. The balloons especially were enjoyed by many - both children and adults alike.
Coincidentally - or not! - our SWQ Thunder FC Men have won both games that the NAB Sponsors have attended. Could they be our Lucky Charm?
We put the Spotlight on one of our Thunder family whether they be a coach, player, team, volunteer, manager, sponsor, board member or Thunder fan.

Coaching Workshop Win
SWQ Thunder FC co-hosted a Coaching Workshop with Italian recruit Francesco Pelligrini (Francesco No. 2). All SWQ Thunder Coaches were in attendance and the club generously extended the invitation to all community coaches.
The event proved to be very successful with the Thunder Senior Men's, U20 Youth and U18's attending to provide live demonstration's of drills and exercises.
An informative evening with the added benefit of further educating our Coaches which benefits all Thunder players.
