many of the younger players making this move are doing it to try to break into an A league side.  Brisbane unfortunately has historically proven difficult to provide this opportunity for whatever reason and Victorian NPLclubs are actively approaching ambitious Queensland players.  Many fringe Roar players take this path rather than stay in QLD and it is not becuase they disresepct the QLD competition - it is purely because the A league clubs seem to forage in the southern competitions rather than the Qld NPL.
Chalmers had 3 seasons at Roar NYLb ut reality is that Roar or anyother A league club won't sign 3 first team keepers and at 20 was considered too old for another round in the NYL competition.

There seems to be a higher success rate in being picked up by an A league club as a player from the VIC NPL than it seems from QLD's NPL.  It's not about the money at that age  - average VIC NPL deals are around $600 a win and $450 draw and loss - it's about getting an A league opportunity.

Many of the boys bunk up in shared accommodation to defary living costs and then seek out paid work at businesses owned by club patrons.

In Brisbane we only have one A league team and other A league teams outside of QLD don't farm our NPL they actually take directly from Roar.

To be frank I think the talent drain will become even larger in the next few years.

There was a list floating around of players that had moved south in the last few years and from memory there we at last a dozen in the 19-24 year old bracket.

At the end of the day we only have a limited of full time positions open and as I see it there's only a couple of positions at the moment where a Youth player may be a better option than who is already taking up a squad possie (eg. Polenz).
A champion is one who gets up when he can't.

Just saw that Jai Ingham got picked up by Victory through NPL club Hume. Also looks like Kofi Danning has signed with Hume as well.

A good point that Mike Mulvey made a few years ago at a Roar Fan Forum.

He stated that there are plenty of youngsters around with potential BUT they are not ready for full time professional football. To help counter that it was important to invite in youngsters earlier to train with the main team and get them acclimatised. On limited budgets this is a tricky situation however and therefore you can only select a limited few to bring into the fold.

Yeah this is why the BRFC have the un18's NPL team. They are preparing players from the age's of 15,16.
From the un 18's to the Aleague a seamless transition in terms of tactics and physical preparation.
 
Last season was the first time that the Roar have had young players 15-16, playing in the 18's NPL and successfully transitioned some players to the  NPL mens and onto the NYL team currently. So i think that they are on the right track. I'd be expecting them to be able to develop players to come into the Aleague team in the near future.

Good luck to him, but IMO, shouldn't have been let go. Had a lot more potential for me than Brady seems to

I don't think they/clubs have to charge for it... some games I have been to are free, some I have had to pay... there was 5$ ticket at spencer park vs strikers last week, but city didn't charge anything when we played them few weeks back...

all our home games are definitely free though...

$5 is a fair price. It supports the team but isn't profiteering.

Has anyone gone along to npl as lately? How do you rate the experience? I'd like to watch a few roar games

It's always nice to check out a local game. In the case of places like Olympic & City, you have the benefits of good food (reflecting the original ethnic base). Beyond that, watch local games and throw some money over the bar/food stalls in the clubhouse. Keep the $$$$ local ;)

I attended the SWQ Thunder a couple of weeks back. Good local football, and some players are pretty skillful (some not, too). I have friends here in Toowoomba that will drive up to watch Olympic play, just for the food at the games. I like that grassroots culture aspect of it.

I'm at most SC Fire games, both home and away. General rule for Strikers games is $5 Adult, Concession $2 and Children free. As for the Brisbane City/Strikers game ticket prices, I'm fairly sure it was an FFA Cup game. AFAIK, all Brisbane City home games are free because they make most/all their money off the clubhouse food. Never had to pay at a City home game

No worries :) . Interesting to note, the wheels are coming off FNQ Heat's season. Won pretty much all of their opening games, but have now lost 3 of their last 5 games. Still in first, but the gap they had has since vanished. 1 point above Strikers and Redlands now, although the latter has a game in hand
