WANTED - volunteers to help drive the Warwick Cowboys Rugby League Club into the 2013 season.

Cowboys president Don Browne said he was hoping for a large attendance at the AGM on October 25 at the Warwick Golf Club.

"I know some committee members are not standing again so new people with fresh ideas will be needed for office bearer and committee positions," Browne said.

"New people bring new ideas to a footy club. We need more involvement by volunteers to keep the club strong in the TRL."

Browne said it cost a lot of money to field three competitive teams.

"The TRL is pushing clubs to go out and buy players to improve the competition," Browne said.

"I would prefer money being spent on developing our coaches and players in the local district rather than buying players from outside the TRL."

Browne has been president for two years, taking over from Greg Carey two months before the first of two disastrous floods in December 2010 and January 2011. He led the rebuilding of facilities.

The club will have its 2012 break-up and sign-on for 2013 at the clubhouse on November 3 at 4pm.

Prospective players, supporters, sponsors and volunteers are welcome at the get-together.

Two weeks later on November 17, the Cowboys will unveil their Wall of Legends honoured Queensland, Australia and NRL players with a Warwick connection, including premiership-winning Melbourne Storm winger Justin O'Neill.
