Player Announcement The Port City Power 'The Capricornian' Surge are excited to announce the signing of 2018 Power Shooting Guard, Matt Hancock, for Queensland State League season 2020. Hancock returns to Gladstone after averages of 14PPG, 4RPG and 2APG in QBL18. Since playing with the Power, Hancock represented the Waverly Flacons in the NBL1 competition in 2019. Prior to that, Hancock had been an NBL Development Player with Melbourne United and the Illawarra Hawks. On returning to Gladstone, Hancock had the following to say "I'm looking forward to coming back to the Gladstone region. I can't wait to get back to working with Brady and the rest of the team. I'm enthusiastic about helping the program make strides forward under the new competition structure in Queensland. It's time to put Gladstone on top". Coach Brady Walmsley said "I'm excited about having the opportunity to work with Matt again. He is an ambitious, motivated and professional person, who will help elevate the standards and expectations of the program. We aim to be a force in the Queensland State League and this signing, as well as the others still to announce, reinforce our intentions to be taken seriously as a threat to the competition. Matt is an elite shooter and we look forward to putting him in a position to do what he does best" To get re-accustomed to seeing Hancock in a Power jersey, check his highlights from QBL18 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h7_UVymP1E Power up! ...

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT Earlier this week, Basketball Queensland and the NBL announced their partnership to remodel the senior representative competition structure in Queensland. As a result, associations were granted the opportunity to provide feedback and disclose their intention to nominate for the NBL1-North or proposed Queensland State League competitions for season 2020. With unification, the Gladstone Amateur Basketball Association and the Port City Power program wish to advise of our intention to nominate for the Queensland State League competition and not the NBL1–North. Power Chairperson, Alison Murdoch, had the following to say “This is a completely new competition structure and whilst we are aspirational about the opportunity to compete in the NBL1 in the future, we believe this decision will allow us to continue strengthening our financial position, whilst giving us the chance to present as a more competitive outfit immediately. This is the start of a 3-year strategic journey to solidify ourselves as a major player in the NBL1, but that journey starts with us nominating for the Queensland State League in 2020” The proposed new Queensland State League competition will potentially include teams from Central Queensland, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane region and the Gold Coast. GABA President, Mirrin Rashleigh, commented “We look forward to continuing to offer our junior representative players a pathway to senior representative basketball. We have taken significant strides over the past 18 months and there has been clear evidence of the local benefits of that through opportunities provided in the 2019 QBL season and through the CQBL competition. We believe the Queensland State League will act as an accelerator to the work we have already started in producing local talent for the senior elite level” The Port City Power program has long been the single state league sporting competitor in the region and this move continues that tradition of representing Gladstone at it's highest level. “We are enthusiastic about the opportunity this provides us to participate in a league where our resources are more appropriately matched to those of our competitors. Punching above our weight class has been admirable, but we look forward to having the chance to reward our faithful sponsors and supporters with a program that should genuinely challenge in the upper echelon of the Queensland State League in 2020” said Port City Power Men’s Head Coach, Brady Walmsley. The Port City Power are excited to welcome back our major sponsor, ConocoPhillips. We look forward to extending our sponsor relationships and expanding our community footprint across the region in 2020 and beyond. Stay tuned for signing announcements in the coming weeks. ...
