The Leah Aylward Memorial Bursary
Yay the Girls!
The Leah Aylward Memorial Bursary has been established for girls between 5 and 12 years of age whom without financial support, would not be able to participate in our Junior Development Program.
Leah passed away unexpectedly at the end of 2020. She was a valued member of our club having played and managed our Senior Women's Team over a number of seasons including a successful league and finals championship campaign. Leah was a champion of social justice including for females in sport and more broadly in life. Having lived in Costa Rica, she was fluent in Spanish and was a passionate advocate for Latin America communities and culture in Australia, Latin America and in her home country, the USA.
Over the past few years, Leah yearned to return to Brisbane and to our club. Leah loved football, her team mates and our club and we loved her! She made a huge impression on and will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
The Leah Aylward Memorial Bursary is an initiative of her former team mates and our club hopes to continue to raise funds for this bursary for many years into the future so we can continue Leah's passion for supporting girls into the wonderful world of football.
