Buderim's coach aims to make it attractive

INCOMING Buderim Wanderers coach Warren Crickmore says his side will play an eye-catching brand of football next season.

The Wanderers, who finished this year's McDonald's Premier League season in fourth spot, returned to training last week under Crickmore's guidance.

He takes over from George Cowie and is hoping to instil an attacking mentality in his players.

"We want to play an attractive style of football," he said.

"We also want to make sure we're respectful of everyone and every club. We want people to come and watch.

"We're going to make sure we play an intense, attacking style of football. That's how I'd best describe it."

Crickmore coached first grade on the central NSW Coast before moving to the Sunshine Coast nine years ago.

Since then he has mostly coached at junior level, including the Sunshine Coast Junior Premier League under-14 side.

Former National Soccer League premiership winner Craig Williams will serve as the club's reserve-grade coach.

Williams won the NSL title with the Brisbane Strikers in 1999 during a decade-long playing career in the country's top flight.

Crickmore said things were already looking good for season 2013 as about 30 players had attended the club's first training session last week.

He said, however, it was too early to make predictions about what the squad would look like next year or make player announcements. He was simply looking to continue the momentum gained by the club over the past few years.

"I get along with George (Cowie) - he's a mate of mine," Crickmore said. "He's also a good coach. But obviously I'm the new coach and hopefully we can continue with what they've done the last few years. I'd like to believe we can."
