Storylines: Growing hope

Hope is a fragile thing in 2021. With the current pandemic and the uncertainty in so many aspects of life, our hope is being shadowed by fear. It is profoundly affecting our humanity.

Southern Cross Uni and Liverpool International Academy will use the Cavanbah Centre as a base for their junior teams as they compete in the Gold Coast football ­competition.

The move will allow some of the most talented players from across northern NSW to test themselves against the top Gold Coast clubs including Palm Beach, Gold Coast Magic and Runaway Bay.

‘These young players ­[under 12s, 13s and 14s] come from all over the region including a strong representation from the Byron area,’ LIA general manager Scott Collis said.

‘Cavanbah is an excellent regional facility. Many Gold Coast families will visit Byron over the year for our matches showcasing our best young players in one of the north coast’s best locations,’ he said.

Earlier this month Football Far North Coast ­announced a ground-breaking partnership with SCU, which has seen regional high performance football now delivered through the university’s Southern Cross Football Centre facility utilising coaching from the Australia first Liverpool International Academy program.

The LIA program involved ages 10 to 15 and kicked off with more than 250 players trialling for positions during October last year.
