New coach pleased with Spirited football effort

WESTERN Spirit has made a promising start in this year's Football Brisbane competition, overcoming Pine Hills 2-0.

Spirit scored in each half of Saturday night's Football Brisbane Capital League 1 match at Kippen Park.

New top team co-coach David Coles said the most pleasing aspect of the performance was the number of scoring opportunities his side created.

"We missed a lot of chances but we got the points and that's the main thing,'' he said.

Spirit's Reserve Grade side also had a comfortable win, 5-2 over Pine Hills.

Spirit were up 4-0 in a dominant display.

Coles has joined Spirit this season, working with last year's head coach Matt Raub.

"We're still getting everything sorted,'' the former Taringa coach said.

"There's a few new bodies in the club, myself included.

"Once we get settled, we should be okay.''

Coles, a business manager, was looking forward to helping Raub this season.

"Matt and I have known each other for a while and with work commitments and family, we thought we'd share the role this year and work it out that way,'' Coles said.

Western Spirit has a bye in the second round of the annual FFA Cup competition.
