The Gold Coast SUNS are extremely disappointed to advise that Mac Andrew has been charged by Queensland Police in the early hours of Saturday, 31 December 2022 with driving under the influence of alcohol.

After failing a roadside blood alcohol test, Andrew cooperated fully with police, was charged, released and is due to appear in court later next month.

“Mac has made a poor decision and understands that he has let a number of people down, as well as the club and the wider Gold Coast community,” General Manager Football Performance Wayne Campbell said.

“He understands the severity of his actions and has shown remorse and as a club we will now look to support Mac and help him through the situation.”

Mac will be required to meet with club management and members of the leadership group when he returns to training on the 9th January, where a club imposed sanction will be finalised.

Neither the club nor player will be making any further comment at this time. An update will be provided once a sanction is finalised.
