The very best football schools

Follow the spirit of John Paul College Alumni Ki Sung Yueng (David KI) who won the bronze medal at London Olympic 2012, our footballers emulated David’s success with outstanding results across the pitch at state and national level.

Wins in the Kanga Cup, Bill Turner Cup, ISSA Cup and Uhlsport Cup placed John Paul College amongst the very best football schools in the nation. These results were backed up with a further five TAS Premierships.

John Paul College Football Club has embarked on a new and exciting partnership with another burgundy and blue club. John Paul is now an official partner club to the world-renowned West Ham United Oceania Academy (WHUOA).

The John Paul College football program has a number of players who have graduated and gone on to professional careers in the sport. The most notable of these being Sung Yueng Ki who not only plays in the Scottish Premier League for Celtic and England Premier League but has more than 20 international caps to his name representing his country, South Korea.

Brian Cheesman, Director of Football at John Paul College says, “The West Ham Academy has one of the most prestigious and respected youth development programs in the world and John Paul College is thrilled and honoured to be associated with it as a partner club.”

The joint venture with the West Ham United Academy and the introduction of the famous ‘West Ham Way’ will provide further expansion of the John Paul College Football Club, its principles, philosophies and methods. This in turn will provide an exciting new pathway to the top for elite players as well as benefit coaches and parents alike. It will also provide students of the College, as well as young players from all over South East Queensland, a fantastic opportunity to showcase their talents via the National ID camps and Technical Centres which could deliver them the opportunity of a lifetime, to train with the West Ham Academy players in London
