The Gold Coast Rugby League has a new executive committee in place after hosting its Annual General Meeting.
Former Southport Tigers, Beaudesert, Redcliffe and Tamborine forward Doug Cameron has taken over from Steve Pollock who did not stand for re-election.
Cameron, who last played with the Tamborine Bushrats, is eager to take the competition forward to multiple grades in 2004 and build a platform to provide the exploding junior league on the Coast with senior football into the future ?there?s a lot to be done in the area and we hope to work with the Qld Cup clubs, Mixwell Cup clubs and the Gold Coast Juniors to ensure there is a pathway for these kids and also a social level of the game for those who just want to pay footy?.
?We have a great base of clubs including Burleigh, Tamborine, Parkwood, Runaway Bay, Currumbin Tugun, Southport, Helensvale, Nerang and Mudgeeraba but are looking to move things forward and will be speaking with officials from a proposed new club at Canungra next week and Robina in the near future also? Cameron said.
The League also welcomes former Burleigh official Lawrie Phillips and Nerang?s Lucy Evans to the Executive Committee. A new management committee is also in place to work on draws, marketing & promotion, representative football etc. and includes Peter Daley, Craig Marks, Paul Ayshford and Ken Evans.
Gold Coast Rugby League now has an office at Carrara Stadium with the QRL, Gold Coast Juniors and ARL Foundation and eager to speak with additional clubs wishing to enter teams in 2004.
For more information contact Doug Cameron 0417478101 or Lawrie Phillips 0419635444.
