Michael Thwaite and the ref exchange conversation Saturday night.
Caption this!

Here’s a few responses from GCU’s insta story

My mum’s a what?

When you see a ghost for the first time

How is it against us?

You serious ref, Smith has gone down like a bag of .... Why are ya trying to slap me?

When your mum says you can’t go to training

KFC is that way

You’re joking right, Knights to win the league

And from the man himself “You don’t use VAR”

Classy finish from Conor Smith to open the scoring in last night’s derby.


Hats off to our senior women who went to the children’s hospital in Brisbane yesterday, a @starlightchildrensfoundation visit to brighten up the day of sick children and their families.
Based on the feedback from one mum, it worked! “Hey guys,
Just wanted to thank the ladies for coming to the Queensland Children’s Hospital today.
They were so great with our kids, we’ve all been separated due to our youngest being nearly 4 weeks inpatient with a couple more likely to go. The women provided some much needed family play time and really boosted spirits as our kids spent time together for the first time in 2 weeks!
So thanks ladies, you were great!!” Rebekah Caust


Another touch of quality from Conor Smith tonight against the Knights, a sublime chip to open the scoring.
That makes it four in four for the scouser.

Well in Conor!

Honours are shared after Conor Smith’s sublime first half goal was cancelled out when the Knights bundled in an equaliser in the second.

A well deserved point for United on the road.


Here's how Gold Coast United FC are expected to line-up in tonight's #NPLQLD Rd7 Gold Coast derby.

Kristian Rees has opted for an unchanged starting XI with Justyn Mckay added to the bench having recovered from an ankle roll that forced his late 'match-eve' withdrawal before Rd6.


Derby Day!

Could this have been scripted any better?
United’s last gasp winner and the Knights loss to the competition front runners in round 6 sees the two clubs separated by a single point heading into today’s first Gold Coast #NPL derby.

All the ingredients are in place for a no-holds-barred, entertaining contest following some some notable ‘club-swaps’, late signings and an expected bumper, vocal crowd at the Croatian Club.

Who's going and what's your score prediction?

Another feast of football set to roll out this weekend.
The U18 & U20 NPL squads kicks things off tonight, their first taste of a local derby against Gold Coast Knights F.C. at Carrara - a precursor to the 'big show' tomorrow night when the Men do battle for the first leg of the Coast Cup.

The Gold Coast United FC NPLW squads take on Mitchelton Football Club at Teralba Park this weekend. The Women will be looking to return to the winner's circle tomorrow afternoon.

On Sunday the NPL Boys make a trip up the range for matches against SWQ Thunder FC in Toowoomba.

And the SAP Boys squads are involved in 'mini-series' home and away across the weekend.

Best of luck to all squads, play hard, play fair.

Let's go United!

Cian Cuba and Michael Thwaite have both been recognised for strong performances against the Brisbane Roar with inclusion in the Football Queensland Round 6 Team of the Week.



Media call today ahead of Saturday’s blockbuster derby!

Tune-in to tonight’s sports news on @9newsgoldcoast at 5.30 to hear Michael Thwaite’s thoughts on the first ever league derby between Gold Coast United & the Gold Coast Knights

Bring it on!


Some great football between our #NPLW squads and Logan Lightning on Sunday at Coplicks in warm conditions. Where's Autumn?

Wins for the U13's & 18's who put Logan to the sword.

The U15's worked hard, putting in a strong performance in a tight match.
A highlight from both the U13’s & 15’s the rather unconventional pre-game routine - ‘nut-bushing’. Even spotted Coach Cook lip-sincing at one point!
