It’s all systems go for the 2018 Boorowa Rugby League season after a highly successful  AGM was held last week.

It was pleasing to see a good roll up of interested parties and putting a committee in place was relatively easy. 

There have been only a few changes to the committee with the most notable being the election of new Club President Stuart Gay. 

Past president, Murray Armour did not stand for re-election but has still maintained a minor role in the committee. 

The entire Rovers committee recognised the excellent work that Murray has done in revitalising the Rovers particularly in the 2017 season.  

Murray in turn thanked the committee for their support over the past year.

Incoming president, Stuart Gay boosts a wealth of experience in Sports committee administration and is bound to continue the good work of Murray. 

Stuart has been a key figure in success of Boorowa Junior League in the past and will no doubt bring that experience to administering the club at a senior level.

The club is happy to report that Sharon Hinds was re-elected as Club Secretary whilst Brendon Shean will continue his outstanding work in the treasurer’s role for 2018. 

Gavin Campbell was elected as senior Vice President whilst Murray Armour fills the Junior Vice President role. 

Phil Coggins will continue in his position as Publicity Officer. 

We also had a good roll of committee staff who will continue in their crucial roles of running the club. 

It takes an enormous amount of work to run a footy club and if you’re keen to get on board in any capacity please see a committee member or get in contact with the Courthouse Hotel.

The appointment of coaches is expected to be finalised shortly with Brendon Shean already being re-appointed as the League Tag coach. 

The Rovers coach is expected to be finalised with negotiations with interested parties well under way.

The club is also in discussions about a potential youth league team for next season.

In order to do this, we obviously need numbers but indications are that there are many young players who may well be keen to continue their careers with a youth league team. 

Any interest players should express their interest to members of the Rovers committee. 

The hard work never stops in the off season so stay tuned to this column for all your league news.
