Gold Coast FC Suns Kicking News

August 8, 2015 - Tom Lynch kicks five goals in win over Brisbane
"Gold Coast is still the dominant Queensland team after a 14-point QClash victory at the Gabba on Saturday that has left the Brisbane Lions wallowing in last place. In an entertaining match between the two bottom teams, the Suns made their decisive break with four straight goals during the third quarter and held on to win 17.12 (114) to 14.16 (100).... Just a week after kicking a last-second goal to earn his team a draw against West Coast, Tom Lynch booted five goals and bagged himself the Marcus Ashcroft Medal for best afield." - AFL

July 4, 2015 -  Charlie Dixon kicks seven goals in win over North Melbourne
"Almost a year to the day of his season-ending shoulder injury last year, the superstar Suns' skipper provided a timely reminder of what his side had been missing in the 19.11 (125) to 10.10 (70) victory on Saturday in Carrara. Ablett finished with a team-high 31 disposals, but it was his sheer presence that inspired his teammates to rise to another level after a horrific week for both club and code. Charlie Dixon also had a day out with a career-best seven goals, Aaron Hall chipped in with three and defender Steven May silenced North Melbourne forward Jarrod Waite." - ABC

May 2, 2015 - Charlie Dixon kicks six goals in win over Brisbane
"Charlie Dixon kicked an equal career-best six goals as Gold Coast finally notched its first win for the year over a desperately disappointing Brisbane Lions outfit at Metricon Stadium. The Suns had the game well won by three-quarter time with a seven-goal lead as Dixon monstered a series of opponents to dominate the game, which Gold Coast went on to win by 64 points." - AFL

January 18, 2015 - Gary Ablett re-signing imminent
"Gary Ablett is close to signing a deal that will tie him to the Gold Coast Suns for the rest of his career. And, in a double boost to the Suns, their skipper could be back in action as early as the pre-season NAB Challenge that starts early in March. It is believed that Ablett and his manager Liam Pickering have agreed to terms of a three-year contract extension that will expire at the end of the 2018 AFL season by when the dual Brownlow medallist will be 34 years old. It is also believed that the Suns originally offered Ablett a two-year extension but have agreed to an extra year in a deal that will ensure the midfielder remains among the highest paid players in the national code of football. Late last week Suns football manager Marcus Ashcroft said a new deal for Ablett was imminent but would not say when it would be announced.' - Gold Coast Bulletin
