In 2010, Power finished 6th place in the league, and went out of the finals series after just one match, losing to Capalaba Bulldogs by penalty shoot out.
Power started the season determined to improve upon their 6th place position in 2010, and the signs looked good after a respectable 1-0 defeat at Victorian Premier League side Dandenong Thunder in pre-season.
However the season start could not have been worse for Power, who only managed 1 point from their first 7 games. They picked up their first win of the season against University of Queensland on 14 May.
In the 2012 season Power again started slowly. But 6 rounds in began to find their feet. They went on a commanding run. With the team changing their long ball style to a very quick passing game. Soon Power were within claiming another BPL Premiership. With one Game to go Power lost out to Wolves 3-1 to finish 3rd. Redlands finished top, Wolves second and Rochedale closing out the top 4. Power beat Eastern Suburbs in the first final (3rd v 6th) 2-0. but lost the next final game to Rochedale rovers (eventual Finalists)
Power have started Preseaon very strong. Retaining a large majority of the squad to push on for the coming season. They have added Michael Baird from Central coast mariners, Perth Glory and Brisbane Roar. And also Olympic's highly rated right winger Michael Butters.
