RUGBY LEAGUE: After presiding over a successful Warwick Cowboys season, president David O'Leary is calling it a day.

After a long career as a player and success as a coach, O'Leary took on the presidency at the start of the 2015 season.

"I committed to one year and am not standing again due to family commitments,” he said.

"I had a ball and am glad I took on president.

"Our son Aiden is old enough to play rugby league next season and the two girls are competing in gymnastics so it is just too time consuming to stand for president again.”

In a season when Warwick made A and under-18 TRL grand finals, O'Leary said one of the other high points was the club championship win for a second successive season.

"The whole club contributes to a club championship win, it is a reward for the players but also the volunteers,” he said.

O'Leary is upbeat about the great support the club received from past players during the finals series.

"The old boys want to stay connected to the club, Chris Lancaster was one of the players from the early days and was in touch with me from Bundaberg before the grand finals,” he said.

O'Leary is hoping a prospective president comes forward in the next nine days as the club annual general meeting is on October 26 at the Hawker Rd Function Centre at 6.30pm.

All welcome to the meeting and welcome to stay on after the meeting for dinner at the function centre.

Any prospective candidates for president or any position welcome to email O'Leary on cowboyspresident@hotmail.com
