We would like to acknowledge and congratulate Brandon Borrello (graduated St Columban’s 2013) on receiving the National Youth League Player of the Year Award. This is a huge achievement for which the school community could not be prouder.
Brandon Borrello, a former student of St Columban’s College and the StC Mentor Academy Program, was recently recognised for his outstanding football talent at the Football Federation Australia A-League National Football Awards in Sydney on April 28. Brandon was named as a member of the Brisbane Roar Youth League team in 2011 and has continued to improve in both skill and playing ability over the years. In 2013, whilst still playing for the Youth League Team, Brandon was called up to the Brisbane Roar Hyundai A-League team for their first game against the Wellington Phoenix in New Zealand. This was to be the first of 13 games throughout the 2013/14 season in which Brandon was called upon to make valuable contributions to the A-League Table Leaders.
Throughout late 2013 and early 2014 Brandon was also involved in the Australian U20 Young Socceroos Development Camps showing great skill and promise at each. Brandon was recognised at the awards night as the National Youth League Player of the Year, which acknowledges the best and fairest player in the league that is voted on by an expert panel appointed by the National Technical Director at the conclusion of the season. We congratulate Brandon on everything he has achieved and look forward to seeing his developments and successes in the coming years.
