Wolves howl for future successes

FOOTBALL: The success of colts players Sam McLennan, Josh Jordan and Matthew O'Leary in senior football has buoyed Warwick Wolves' coach Peter Osborn for his club's hopes in future seasons.

Osborn was speaking in the wake of a 1-0 loss to Stanthorpe United in the grand final on Saturday at the International ground.

"Some exciting new talent has come forward in both Warwick teams, contributing to the senior team with great effectiveness and skill," he said.

"Warwick can look forward to a bright future with the number of excellent young players coming through the junior ranks.

"In the off season we are looking forward to the installation of lights at Queens Park and a strong futsal season at WIRAC."

Osborn was delighted with his team's efforts in their first season in the Stanthorpe competition.

"The passion and enthusiasm by the Stanthorpe teams that is present at every game was far beyond expectations," he said.

Reflecting on the grand final, Osborn said United started to dominate in the last 15 minutes of the first half.

"Warwick tried to fight back, but it wasn't until the last 20 minutes that they began to look like scoring," he said.

"We then attacked continuously and had some very close chances but ran out of time."

Dom Benz, Cameron Davey, Jim Osborn and Josh Jordan were the standouts for the visitors.
