General Manager – Football Operations, Jon Haines thanked the players for the significant contribution they had made to football club.

“This year has been an incredibly difficult period for player departures given the level of connection and sense of belonging that everyone involved with the playing group is feeling,” Haines said.

“On behalf of everyone involved with the Gold Coast SUNS, including our Members and supporters, we would like to take the opportunity to thank each player for their commitment and contribution to the football club. They are all outstanding young men with wonderful opportunities in front of them and we wish them every success for what lies ahead.”
