Warwick Cowboys lock in 2016 C-grade coach

RUGBY LEAGUE: After a successful first season in 2015, Peter Locke has announced he will stay on as coach of the Warwick Cowboys C-grade team for the new year.

The team reached the grand final of the Toowoomba Rugby League competition this year and hopes to make an appearance come finals time in 2016.

Locke said he enjoyed his first stint as a senior coach and looks forward to a second year at the helm.

"We have quite a few players from last year that are keen to stay on and a few new faces coming on board as well," he said.

"It's a really good avenue for players that work away or work nights and can't train but still want to be part of a team."

The former Cowboys president said C grade presented a great opportunity for the club.

"It's great for the club to have C grade to build the player base, as well as financially," he said.

"The younger players get a chance to play with former A-grade seniors and they learn so much."

The Cowboys will hold trial matches in February ahead of the 2016 season.
