2023 saw the Southport Sharks senior men’s team compete in the VFL and the senior women’s teams compete in the QAFLW.


Steve Daniel coached the VFL side and was again assisted by Matthew Primus. Former Southport captains and Doc Mackenzie Medallists Andrew Boston and Jason Burge were also appointed as assistant coaches. A list of 42 players was compiled, made up of 30 players aged 22 and over, and 12 players under the age of 22. Three players under 22 were required to play in the team each week.

The majority of pre-season was spent at Carrara Sports Complex oval #2 as Fankhauser Reserve underwent major drainage works and was unavailable until March.

The season started well at home with a resounding 82 point win over Sandringham. From thereon, our season began to unravel. Close losses to finals bound North Melbourne, eventual Grand Finalists Werribee and finals bound Brisbane resulted in a 1 and 3 start.

This was compounded by some serious injuries in this period. Max Pescud broke his collar bone, Zac Foot sustained a serious toe injury and Mackenzie Willis ruptured his ACL at training.

Despite these setbacks, three consecutive wins over finals bound Footscray, the Northern Bullants and Geelong at GMHBA stadium had us back in the positive on the win/loss ledger.

On the one-year anniversary of the passing of former President Dr Alan “Doc” Mackenzie, we hosted the Gold Coast Suns at Fankhauser Reserve for the annual Mackenzie Cup. Facing a 40 point deficit at three quarter time, a courageous Southport outfit stormed home with the aid of the breeze to fail by only two points. The Suns would go on to win the 2023 VFL Premiership and the Round 8 game was a case of what could have been.

Losses to finals teams Box Hill and Casey Demons followed before a hard-fought win over Port Melbourne at home. In Round 13, we travelled to Sydney to celebrate the 100th game of former Southport junior Fraser Thurlow, but were completely outclassed by the GWS Giants.

The finals equation was getting harder by the week but the away loss to Williamstown following an eight-hour plane delay was difficult to swallow. With our finals hopes all but extinguished, the season ended with a 50 point away loss to Collingwood.

We finished the season in 14th place with 8 wins and 10 losses and a percentage of 107.9%. We were extremely competitive in 15 of our 18 games, however unfortunately, the football gods did not shine upon us in season 2023.

Following the sad and untimely passing of our newly elected President, Matt Schneider in January 2023, we were proud to dedicate our new female player changerooms in his honour. The Matt Schneider Locker Room is a legacy from Matt’s vision for a successful women’s football program. Whether mentoring players or assisting with the operational and strategic needs, Matt was totally committed to his beloved Sharks and we miss him greatly.

After the disappointment of a Grand Final overtime loss in 2022, Southport were looking to go one better in the 2023 QAFLW season. To assist with the operations of our QAFLW teams, Southport Hall of Fame player David Ashkar returned to the fold and proved to be a great asset as our Assistant Manager – Football Operations.

The 2023 competition consisted of eight teams from South-East Queensland. Southport and Bond University from the Gold Coast, University of Queensland, Yeronga, Coorparoo, Wilston Grange, Aspley from Brisbane and Maroochydore from the Sunshine Coast.

Peter Doherty took over as Senior Coach from Ryan Davis and was assisted by Jim Sandral and Corey Gillie for the duration of the season.

Prior to the season starting, the AFLW conducted a supplementary draft and three Southport Sharks players were selected, being Poppy Boltz, Caitlin Miller and Anise Bradfield.

The season started brilliantly with a resounding win in the Grand Final rematch. The game was played at Brighton Homes Arena and the Sharks were way too good for University of Queensland to the tune of 89 points.

Numerous big wins were to follow and we found ourselves undefeated and on top of the ladder after 10 rounds. In Round 11, we faced a full-strength Bond University at Fankhauser Reserve. A low scoring first half developed into a shootout after time, but we were outclassed by a Bond University team laden with Suns Academy talent.

A Round 12 competition bye was fixtured for the Tasmania vs Queensland state game at North Hobart Oval. On a perfect Hobart winter’s day, Southport were represented by Steph O’Brien (Captain), Selina Priest, Georgia Breward, Carly Remmos and Lilly Pearce. Queensland prevailed by 19 points and Steph O’Brien was awarded the Best on Ground Medal.

The Round 13 game at Maroochydore saw our first women to play 50 senior games at the Club. Hannah Davies and Maddy Watt celebrated with a 35 point away win.

The remaining three games were all wins which saw us finish the Home & Away season on top of the ladder.

The second semi-final was played at Fankhauser Reserve against local rivals Bond University. The Sharks trailed by four goals at three quarter time, but rallied to pull within nine points before fading late.

A preliminary final against Aspley stood in the way of another crack at Bond University. Peter Doherty spoke of getting to Base Camp before we try to climb Everest, but the Sharks let the occasion get the better of them and despite having two more scoring shots, fell to Aspley by eight points. Bond University went on to win the Grand Final comfortably.

Despite the disappointment of bowing out in the Preliminary Final, the QAFLW Program should be judged as a resounding success. Since Grand Final day 2022, a total of eight players have made it to AFLW level. They are as follows;

× Kaylee Kimber – Gold Coast Suns, signed as replacement player in August 2022

× Bree McFarlane – Western Bulldogs, signed as free agent in April 2023

× Caitlin Miller – GWS Giants, selection 8 in the 2023 Supplementary AFLW Draft

× Poppy Boltz – Brisbane Lions, selection 16 in the 2023 Supplementary AFLW Draft

× Annise Bradfield – GWS Giants, selection 22 in the 2023 Supplementary AFLW Draft

× Darcie Davies – Gold Coast Suns, 2023 Northern Academy priority selection

× Lilly Pearce – Richmond, signed as a replacement player in July 2023

× Caitlin Wendland – Brisbane Lions, signed as a replacement player in August 2023

While the unavailability of these players hurt our chances of winning our inaugural state league title, these eight players (along with the three from 2022) are realising their dreams of playing at the highest level. Well done to our coaches, staff and volunteers who have all played a part in the success of these players.


Premiership Coach Malcolm Smith once again took the reins of the Southport QAFLW Reserves team and was assisted by Wade Smith and former QAFLW Captain Ashlee Flick. The Home & Away season proved very challenging with player availability and this resulted in a 6-7 record with one game to play. The Sharks needed a win or a draw to qualify for a place in the finals.

A Round 16 home game against Yeronga stood in the way of a premiership defense. In a low scoring affair, Southport led at half-time and by a point at three-quarter time. Yet again, the Sharks dug deep to hold off Yeronga and claim a draw which ensured a finals appearance.

Southport (4th) played Bond University (3rd) in an Elimination Final at Fankhauser Reserve, but again Bond proved way too strong and ended the Sharks season with a 46 point win. Bond went on to win the reserve grade premiership with a 35 point win over Coorparoo.

We extend our sincere thanks to the Coaches, Staff and Volunteers for your ongoing commitment and to all of our QAFLW players who have shown passion and dedication throughout the season.
