The University of Queensland Football Club stole the show at the 2010 Football Brisbane Gala Awards on September 20.

The club won three major awards to cap off one of their most successful seasons to date.

The most prestigious of these awards was Senior Club of the Year, awarded for outstanding performance across all 14 of UQ’s Football Brisbane teams.

UQ also won the Club Champion Award for their dominance of Premier Division 1, while club captain Peter Moore took out the Men’s Division 1 Player of the Year award.

These awards were the latest in a string of successes for UQFC, having just this month gained promotion to the Brisbane Premier League for 2011.

UQ’s top side will play North Pine in the Premier Division 1 grand final this Sunday at Perry Park in Bowen Hills, in an attempt to secure yet another major prize for the club.

The Division 1 Reserves will also play their grand final this weekend, taking on Toowoomba on Friday night on oval 3, UQ St Lucia.

A further seven UQ teams contested grand final matches last weekend, with the Women’s Division 3, Men’s Metro Division 3, Metro Division 6 and Under-21 teams all coming out victorious.

An outstanding 11 of UQ’s 14 Football Brisbane teams reached the finals of their respective divisions this season.

In yet another milestone, the club officially became “The University of Queensland Football Club” in July of this year, finally matching the transition from “soccer” to “football” amongst national and local bodies.

UQ Sport would like to congratulate UQFC on a remarkable season and wishes the Premier Division 1 teams all the best for their grand finals this weekend.
