Loyalty to ACE

The ACE Women Reserves took on a huge challenge this season – but had a major factor in their favour. The Ressies made the transition from junior to senior football by stepping up not one level, but two – from Under 16 to Seniors – when they joined the Women’s Capital League 1 Reserves. It…

Jared’s big break

Jared Moran (pictured at Acacia Ridge last weekend by @ChanCameraa) is proof again that football is about taking chances. He moved down from Rockhampton last summer as a box-to-box midfielder looking for an “opportunity” to play at a higher level.
