Peninsula Football On Show
Peninsula Power Football Club (FC) is certainly kicking goals in the National Premier League (NPL) Qld. The club is set for a day of celebrating for its last home game fixture of the season.

Peninsula Power FC president Craig Feuerriegel said the game would be against one of its traditional rivals, Lions FC.

“We are both currently in the top four and anticipate this last home game will be a big one, as always is between the two of us,” Craig said.

On the club’s NPL squad is last year’s leading goal scorer Andy Pengelly. Andy is on the radar of a number of Hyundai A-League coaches including head coach of the Brisbane Roar, Warren Moon. Warren is a former player and coach at Peninsula Power.

Craig said the club was going to celebrate National Indigenous Week as part of its celebration events on the day.

“The players are really excited to be wearing Indigenous playing strips," he said.

“They’ll have their names across the back [of the jersey] and they’ll get to keep them at the end."

The club will also hold a curtain-raiser match between Redcliffe and Margate starting at 5.30pm, to celebrate the history of Peninsula football. Redcliffe FC and Margate FC were amalgamated 20 years ago to form Peninsula Power FC.

The club hasn’t looked back since, celebrating a stellar year in the Football Qld Premier League in 2018 by finishing the season undefeated. This resulted in the club being promoted to the NPL Qld last year.

“We had quite a good first year in the NPL, making the finals before finishing third after being knocked out in the semi’s by eventual grand final winners Gold Coast Knights,” Craig said.

The club will be in full operation mode with the canteen open for food and the bar serving refreshments.

Fans wanting to watch the game and celebrations on the day are advised to contact the club prior to check on the number of attendees allowed.
