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
