President - Anthony Longhurst
Hello beautiful people, I’m Anthony and I’ve been a part of UQF since we founded it as a society in 2020. I am currently studying as a fourth year in Software Engineering and am very passionate about football and leadership. I used to play for Springfield United up until Under 18s, where I then switched over to play socially. If you ever need a bit of motivation, just watch Rooney’s bicycle kick that broke the hearts of Manchester City fans 😉
Treasurer - Arnie Vogt
Hi! My name is Arnie and I’m the treasurer of the UQ Football Society. As treasurer, I take care of the accounts and books of the society. My interest in the position and tasks derives from my interest in everything in relation to finances and accounting. Maybe you’ve guessed by now what I study: I’m enrolled in a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in accounting and finance.
Outside of work and uni, I enjoy watching the games of my favourite football club, Borussia Dortmund, as this is roughly the area I’m from (yes, I’m German!). However, on an international level, I support the Polish national team as I’m also Polish.
Secretary - Bianca Leathers
Hi, I’m Bianca and I’m so excited to be Secretary this year! I’m studying a Bachelor of Laws and Science, majoring in Computer Science. I joined the society last year and have had so much fun getting to know everyone and learning more about football. I’m looking forward to a great year ahead with lots of fun events!
Vice President of Events - Josh Sharma
Hello, my name is Josh and I’m the VP of events for UQF and am currently studying a Bachelor’s of Health Science at UQ. I’ve been playing football from ever since I can remember. From playing one-touch in the streets to playing for my school, I’ve experienced it all. I think it’s safe to say football has been an important part of my life. It helped me develop key skills and allowed me to make friends, even with people who didn’t speak the language I spoke. As the VP of events, I aim to create events that bring the footballing community together in order to have fun! I look forward to seeing everyone
Vice President of Competitions - Kathryn McGee

I am really looking forward to expanding the society and am excited to meet you all!
