FOOTBALL: Warwick took under-10, U12 and U14 teams from the Warwick Wolves Academy to the annual Gold Coast Cup during the school holidays.

Warwick players came up against teams from New Zealand, Far North Queensland, Central Coast Mariners and the top Brisbane clubs.

Wolves Development Academy director of coaching Tim Gaske said Warwick won four of its eight games in the U10 age group under the coaching of Matt Kairouz.

"Both the under-12 and under-14 teams had tough draws and although we didn't get a win on the board, the teams were competitive.”

Warwick player Bradley Cook played for the South West Queensland U15 boys team with players from Stanthorpe, Toowoomba, South Burnett and Dalby.

South-west played their best U15 game in a 4-1 loss to Peninsula Power.

Maddy Duff, Sarah Hockings, Kaitlyn Newley and Ella Briggs all played for the South West U14 girls team in the Gold Coast Cup.

Gaske is planning some friendly games between Warwick Wolves Academy teams and Victoria Point Magic teams to finish the season.

"We will finish the outdoor season in mid November and then organise junior futsal at WIRAC on a Friday afternoon and Sunday morning to give the players 12 months exposure to the round ball game. Information on 0434211441.
