Soccer for Seminarians Brings ACU Together

Apr 17, 2018 by Patrick Rebakis

ACU’s Brisbane Football Club has welcomed the inclusion of seminarians to boost their on-field prowess. Playing in the Men’s team are four seminarians; Gerard Lai, Sang Duc Bui, Tristram Garbellotto and Thomas Popovic.

With the Holy Spirit Seminary Queensland conveniently located next to Brisbane’s ACU campus it seemed only natural for the seminaries to get involved in ACU Sport’s programs.

The seminarians will have an advantage when they compete later in the year at the National Interseminary Soccer Tournament, held in Parramatta. Both teams share the same coach in Tibor Hagymas so it makes for some great synergy when they take on the other seminarians.

The football club are grateful to have the seminarians’ involvement and add some new firepower to their line-up.

Seminarian and ACUFC Brisbane Men’s Team Manager, Gerard Lai said "we've been training hard and I'm delighted to continue my second year with ACUFC Brisbane. I'm very excited to see how it all goes with the new team and such an enthusiastic and experienced coach." 

The women’s team had a great win on the weekend coming away 11-1 on their home ground whilst the men went down 6-1.
