Dedication to club recognised
AFTER 10 years as Warwick Cowboys Football Club president, Greg Carey was honoured with Life Membership at the club’s presentation dinner at the weekend.
Carey took on the presidency in early 2001, when the club was struggling with low community support and dwindling player numbers and was facing the real prospect of financial ruin.
After a series of crisis meetings, Carey received a phone call from Wayne Bennett who implored him to take on the presidency and ensure the survival not only of the Warwick Cowboys, but also the game of senior rugby league in the city.
Carey managed to turn the club around and it has continued to thrive under his leadership.
