Beau Busch (born 16 March 1984) is a former Australian footballer and now the Media and Communications Manager at Professional Footballers Australia.

Club career[edit]

Busch trialled with the Newcastle Jets during the 2008 pre-season.[1][2] On 25 October 2008, Busch made his debut for Sydney FC against Melbourne Victory as a short-term injury replacement.[3][4][5] Busch's stellar performances for the North Queensland Fury gave him cult status amongst Fury fans, with the forming of the Busch supporter group the Beau Bro's. The Beau Bro's signature chant is to the tune of the Kasabian track Vlad the Impailer with 'Beau Busch' replacing the lyrics 'get loose'. On 25 June 2011, Busch moved to Scottish club Arbroath.[6] Busch returned to Australia in 2013 to take up a position with Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) as their Media & Communications Manager.
