Roar game timely for Gympie

ROCKED by two waves of vandalism this month, Football Gympie is looking forward to allowing its focus to fall back on what it does best - helping the sport thrive in the region.

This evening's Brisbane Roar and Sunshine Coast Fire pre-season trial match is a fitting reward for a club to have spent the last few years devoted to improving its facilities.

Despite the heartache at falling victim to senseless vandalism costing thousands to repair, the club is standing tall and is proud of what it's achieving.

Brisbane Roar official Bruce Stadler inspected Football Gympie's facilities earlier this year prior to the friendly match against the Fire and was full of praise.

Stadler said Gympie had some of the best facilities the Roar had seen on its pre-season Roadshow Tour of south east Queensland.
