Football Queensland welcomes Nigel Fanning and Peter Brine to the FQ Board of Directors following their election at the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Meakin Park on Saturday, 10 July.
Fanning brings a wealth of knowledge of the Queensland football landscape as former Chairman of the Football Queensland South West Zone from 2008 to 2021.
He boasts experience in infrastructure, facilities and local government planning as Regional Program Manager for Infrastructure Projects in the South West Region at the Department of Sport and Recreation, and will provide a valuable insight into the delivery and growth of football in regional Queensland.
Brine is a former professional footballer who made 102 appearances for Middlesbrough FC’s first team between 1972-1976. Succumbing to a career-ending injury at the age of 24, he has maintained his involvement in the game as a coach of a number of local football clubs in Townsville including Estates FC and Townsville Warriors, and was a Board Member of Northern Fury from 2012.
Nigel Fanning and Peter Brine join Ben Richardson, Ross Thompson, Jackie Knight and Paula Robinson on the FQ Board of Directors.
