Some might say that three’s a crowd but Futsal playing triplets Hamish, Alex and Bailey Brewis-Foulger say three is the key to their success.
The Futsal trio are a force to be reckoned with, while Bailey defends the goal, Hamish finds every opportunity to set up Alex whose golden boot finds the back of the net nine times out of ten.
The boys were in fine form at round one of the AFA Brisbane Futsal League where they wowed crowds with their team work, tactics and passion for the game. While Baily and Hamish worked hard to defend, Alex scored his first goal in the league;
“I smashed the ball in the bottom left corner” Alex said.
The boys have been playing Futsal together for seven years. Whilst the boys play a plethora of sports which includes everything from rugby to tennis their favourite sport is Futsal;
“Futsal is our favourite sport; we make a good team and the fast game suits us” Hamish said.
The brothers who have competed at a regional and state level play weekly at Centenary and for the past three seasons have made it to their local competitions grand final. They feel that their unique bond helps them stand out and are grateful to proud Mum Vanessa who encouraged them to try Futsal.
Vanessa introduced her talented trio to Futsal when she enrolled them in a Gol Brasil Holiday Academy. Since then they have risen through the ranks to compete for West Moreton and Queensland. The brothers are looking forward to representing Queensland for the third year in a row this January. Hamish said he likes playing at a state level because it is an opportunity to play in a team with his brothers;
“I like playing in a team with my brothers and friends” Hamish said.
The trio are very talented and their passion for the game is inspiring. Bailey said he is driven to play Futsal because “it is fun and challenging at the same time”.
Older brother Jordon and Dad, Gavin, are also Futsal fanatics while Futsal player Jordon inspires his younger brothers to keep playing and being challenged Gavin coaches the triplet’s club team teaching them everything he knows. In the future the triplets hope to continue to rise through the representative ranks to someday play for Australia.
