Gabor Ganczer Technical Director

As interim TD, I am delighted to report that we have secured a new Technical Director.

Introducing Gabor Ganczer

Gabor Ganczer comes to us having spent the three previous years working as Technical Director of Olympic FC.  Gabor has a fantastic football pedigree.  He is currently undertaking his AFC ‘Pro License’ which is the highest coaching qualification available and will continue to work with Brisbane Roar match analysis department.

The impressive feature of Gabor’s interview was his vision for Western Pride over the next five years. He has a clear plan from year to year how to grow and develop the club into an elite environment that gives our young players the opportunity to progress to a higher level of competition.  He has read extensively the High Performance Review that was conducted by Karl Dodd (Previous Senior Mens Coach) and Krishneel Maharaj (U16s Boys Coach) and fully understands the nature of this role at Pride.

He also brings the unique experience of working at a World Cup and Champions League and I know there are not too many coaches in Queensland that can offer such experience to our youngsters.

From my own personal point of view I am very excited about working with Gabor in the coming seasons.  I have the full backing of the WPFC management to continue our commitment to the youth policy in the firsts team and with Gabor running the National Premier Leagues junior teams I am convinced we will start to see more Pride juniors representing the first team in the PS4 NPL QLD competition.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and players who have participated in junior teams for Western Pride in the 2015 and I hope to see you all in 2016 where a new and exciting era for Pride will commence.  A reminder that trials start next week so please ensure you have filled in the registration form.

Gabor can be contacted via the email address. As he is away attaining his AFC ‘Pro License” this week, he will have limited time on email until the end of the week so I can answer any urgent questions about trials and be contacted on
