 The Warwick Cowboys are returning to the

football field with a bang after their season

off with a Christmas party and preseason

training already being planned.

Club president Dayne Barrett said they

were also launching a $25,000 prize raffle to be

drawn at the club’s Christmas Party on 28 November, with pre-season training kicking off

just a couple of days later. Mr Barrett said the

raffle was the largest raffle prize in the club’s

history and the drawing of the prize as well as

the Christmas party would be “the perfect opportunity to bring the club together following

the extended 2020 of-season”.

The 2020 Toowoomba Rugby League competition, which the Cowboys play in, did not

go ahead this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve taken the time during the year to

update some facilities at the clubhouse, hopefully with more on the cards before the new

season kicks off,” Mr Barrett said.

“Weather permitting – and without changes to the coronavirus restrictions – the Christmas party will be outside, and we will be able

to host up to 1000 people.

“We will have the canteen and bar operating and we encourage people to come in their

best Christmas kits – there will be prizes for

the best dressed singles and couples.”

The club has re-appointed Matt Grew as

A Grade coach for the 2021 season. Former

Warwick Cowboys player Aaron McVeigh will

return to the club next year to coach Reserve

Grade. An Under 18s coach is yet to be appointed. The club is still waiting on confirmation of a women’s and second division competition.

Pre-season training is kicking off on December 1 at 6pm at Father Ranger Oval. All

past, present and future players are welcome.

The Warwick Cowboys Christmas Party will

be held at Father Ranger Oval on November 28

from 6pm. As tickets in the $25,000 raffle are
