Bright light in a tough, hard season
FOOTBALL: It has been a tough season on the pitch for Tweed United in the Gold Coast Premier League.
The NSW-based club has struggled for results since the start of the season.
After a draw with Broadbeach to start the campaign, there has been little to cheer about for coach Dean Milosevic and his men.
One bright spot of the season for United however is the blooding of younger players into the squad.
Jacson Myres is one of the young players in whom Milosevic has shown faith this season, giving him his first senior game.
This came two weekends ago when United hosted Broadbeach, with the 15-year-old given the opportunity to show what he can produce at a higher level.
The Tweed teen said he was excited to be shown the confidence by the senior coach to get his first game under his belt at Premier League level.
"It was a great feeling to step up to Premier League level,” Myres said.
"Hopefully I can prove that I am capable and make selection more often.”
