Clydesdales announce new CEO

The Toowoomba Clydesdales would like to welcome their new Chief Executive Neale Wyatt to the job after outgoing CEO Len Saal retired from the position.

Wyatt took over the role on November 1 this year, and is a familiar face around the club after being a regular member of the on-field team since he signed with the Broncos in 1999.

Injuries and stiff competition have forced Neale into an off-field career, but he will still have the opportunity to train and even play alongside the team in 2005.

"When the Clydesdales offered me this opportunity, as well as the flexibility to keep training and possibly playing for the team, it made it the perfect time for me to make the change," he said.

The 23-year-old has also placed emphasis on developing local players and getting them involved in the Clydesdales squad in 2005.

"We really want to strengthen our ties within Toowoomba and having some local players in the said will help."

"I'm also hoping to travel to Brisbane twice a week to train and want to take the local players down with me."

Although Len Saal has stepped down from the CEO position, he will remain a member of the Clydesdales board and will still have an active role within the club.
