Club Philosophy

Magpies Crusaders United is a club built with the foundations set of scoring more goals than the opponent through using the ball effectively and constructively.

Our teams will look to be in positive positions at all times, which allows us to use the ball effectively, play through the lines and put the ball in to goal scoring areas to get the desired outcome. We will be aggressive in all match moments with and without the ball when possible. When without the ball we will apply high collective pressure and protect our goal as a unit.

Individual players will also learn to develop a strong competitive mindset and resilience, combined with technical skill sets and game intelligence, which will allow our players to execute the required actions when needed.
