Volvo Cars Brisbane North Player of the Month – James Armstrong

 In News, Player of the Month

Brisbane City Football Club in partnership with Volvo Cars Brisbane North is proud to award James Armstrong as our Player of the Month.

For the month of June, club coaches selected U12 Goalkeeper James Armstrong as Junior Player of the Month.

James has excelled whilst being at BCFC and moving to Goalkeeper is where he has truly excelled. James has continued played above his age group, showcasing not only his skillset as a goalkeeper but also his determination, hard work and passion for the game.

James’ Father, David shared some great insight into the impact that BCFC has had on James.

“James has been at BCFC for over 5 years now. Starting initially as a defender in Development. He would constantly drift back toward goals and be the last line of defence.
It wasn’t long before he confirmed his interest in being a full-time goalkeeper.  Since dedicating himself to being ‘between the sticks’; he has really come on leaps and bounds in confidence, physical agility and strength over the last few years.
Once he started training with Billy (Lumley); his confidence and ability in goal really excelled. 
James is right on the cusp of his age group for football in Australia and so the club, with my support has always encouraged him to play ‘up’ a year.”

Goalkeeper Coach Billy Lumley had this to share about James.

“James Armstrong is a hard-working Goalkeeper who gives everything he has in every training session and game. His enthusiasm is fantastic and shows great leadership. James rarely misses training sessions and shows great knowledge of the goalkeeper position. James dream is to play for Everton. Well done James.”

James has recently been selected as part of an elite group of boys to travel to the UK and play/train at some of the premier league clubs on a UK football tour. Having scored a high percentage in their grading tests. James will be representing that team as their u12 goalkeeper.

Congratulations James and good luck for the rest of the season and your tour to the UK later this year.
