Padres Red (Ian Walker/Tony Quinlan) finished 2nd in North side comp and will play Musketeers at Ipswich on Saturday in a cross-Brisbane semi.

SEEKING 2 HOST FAMILIES...
Are you the next host family for an import player?
At Padres, we welcome players from across the globe and this season we have 2 imports that would like to play for us.
We as a community, would like to provide a base for the players within a members home, to immerse in the Australian culture and life with your family.
The commitment is for approximately 6 months and requires a room and some support in terms of getting to the field, meals etc.,
The benefits are endless, but weekly board of approximately $50 is paid to you and fees rebates are provided in full for each import.
One of our imports in heading over from the states and arriving next Friday and he is lucky enough to be bringing his wife with him. Therefore, Mikey and Lea would love to be welcomed into your home and this duo will attract 2 full fee rebates. So if you have 2 children playing- 2 fee payments will be rebated, alongside the weekly board. Both are going to be working whilst here and are very keen to help your family and become a valuable and active member of your household.
We have had many imports in the past and the benefit they bring to the community is immeasurable. Mikey is going to coach a junior team or minor grade- so he will be giving back to the club as soon as he arrives.
We do have another import player coming over in the upcoming weeks also- so please identify your interest to Brendan Vassallo (Vice-President) through firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0425 220 244.
