Welcome Alex Smith - Head of Power Women's Football Program

NPLW QLD RD14 - OL Yv PEN 0078 ( 1)

Peninsula Power FC is excited to announce Alex Smith as the new Head of the Women's Football Program and Premier League Women’s Head Coach.


The AFC 'A' Licensed Coach has moved back to Brisbane after working full time at Melbourne City Football Club for the last two years as W-league Assistant Coach and U14 Head Academy Coach. He has also previously worked in coaching roles at Brisbane Roar W-League before heading to Victoria.

“I am delighted to join this fantastic club and to get started building a strong women’s program at Power. It is a very exciting project and the club has made clear their desire to have a successful playing and coaching program” Smith said

There are no illusions as to where the program is at, my job is to show everyone where we are going and how we will get there. It is a challenge I look forward to taking on.

I am extremely passionate about the Women’s Game and will use all my experience from the W League to make sure the program improves each week. My aim is to create the most professional environment I can, using all the resources the club has to offer. Exciting times ahead.

After Smith retired from a professional playing career spanning 10 years which included playing in the USA Major League Soccer and A-League competitions, he now looks forward to passing this knowledge and experience on through to the next generation. "These are exciting times in the World Game for Women and Girls football with the World Cup coming to Australia in 2023 and I am looking forward to working with the players and coaches at Peninsula Power.”

Club President Craig Feuerriegel said “This has been a goal of the club to secure a coach with the experience and passion for women’s football as we continue to rebuild our NPLW program. As the Head of the Power Women’s Football Coaching Program, Smith will oversee a number of key responsibilities, including Women’s NPLW Head Coach role, player recruitment, coaching education, junior girl’s academy and female player development. Our club is very committed to the development and progression of the Women’s Game here in Queensland".
