Focus to improve top eight position
WE had a good win over Sandringham last week to earn our place in the top eight of the TAC Cup.
While again we took a while to warm up, once we did, the most pleasing aspect was the attitude and commitment shown by the players and going on with the job.
We have three games remaining before the finals and depending on how we go, it will determine where we finish in the eight.
There hasn't been much focus on our position on the ladder, rather concentrating on our own individual games and how we can improve on that.
It's pleasing to be in the eight, but we still have a job to do before the finals start.

WE continue to sign players to our roster, in the process building depth and ability.
The players we have signed are a mix of local players and those from interstate.
The players we have signed locally, like Marc Lock, our current captain have shown their ability and skill through the TAC Cup campaign and will play a vital role in our VFL side next year.
With players coming from other states, they will bring part of their own football culture to the club and add their experiences to the playing group.
But it is up to us to bring them together under the banner of the Gold Coast Football Club, playing as one and being proud of who they represent.

WITH the new signings comes a growing awareness of the club interstate and the young players coming here are excited about being part of the new club and coming to play on the Gold Coast with it's appeal and great climate.
You can't dismiss the attraction of the weather - after all if you had a choice between the bleak conditions in Melbourne and the Gold Coast, which would you choose?
It also helps that the club is located on the Gold Coast with itself lifestyle and dynamics.
