This is the story of the group of footballers who took the Gold Coast SUNS' first steps. 'Throw out your birth certificates, boys. This game couldn't care less how old you are.' Guy McKenna Gold Coast SUNS Senior Coach AFL is a fiercely competitive game built on a more than a century of tradition. On April 2, 2011, the Gold Coast SUNS, the AFL's newest club, set out to forge their very own. This is the story of the group of footballers who took the Gold Coast SUNS' first steps. It's the story of the community that banded together and cheered them on.
