CAPRICORN Coast Brothers Junior Rugby League Club finished its season on Sunday, September 11, with a Presentation Day and a final celebration of what was a great year for the 10th year of the club.
Fielding teams from U6s through to U18s, the club had a strong showing in all grades, with the U11s, U12s and U16s taking out their grand finals.
The club won both the Rockhampton District Junior Rugby League Grand Finals which club president Troy Welsh said they were absolutely thrilled about.
"As a club we love to see our kids enjoying the game we all love and it's only made possible by our sponsors, parents, players, friends and volunteers. So a huge thank you to all,” Mr Welsh said.
Mr Welsh said each year Cap Coast Brothers had strengthened its community support, evidenced by the fact that most teams were at capacity.
"We have a great club with wonderful kids and families, and some significant talent coming through from the younger grades and into the internationals,” he said.
"We've had many representative players this year, and we congratulate Bryn Callagan, from our U18s, who is not only a very promising player of the future but was also awarded our overall Club Best and Fairest award, the Quinn Family Memorial Trophy at our Presentation Day.
"However our club cannot run week after week without the support of our very generous sponsors, many who are operating in very challenging times.
"We want to make special mention this year of our sponsors who are the backbone of our club; we do not take them for granted.
"We would like to thank Busby Contracting, JAC'S Learning World, Nextra Yeppoon, The Pines, STS Group, LiveLife Pharmacy, Coal Train, Jacques' Coastal Meats, Rod Harms Rural, Keppel Kitchens, Yellow Brick Road, Crossfit CapCoast, CQ Refrigeration, Hendrie Constructions, Moorey's Mechanical, Bank of Queensland Yeppoon, Strand Hotel Yeppoon, Billman Plumbing and IE Developments.
"We urge the community to support the businesses that support our children in sport.
"We also thank the many club families who assist week after week, and all our players for a great 2016 footy season, and we look forward to another great year in 2017.”
The U11s had a fantastic year, finishing as minor premiers. They played an excellent semi at the new Barmaryee Multi Sports Complex.
"The thing about this team is, they all know their jobs and they work together. We don't have superstars, we have a team,” U11s assistant coach Michael West said.
Most of their teams are at capacity, but will be recruiting for 2017 later in the year, with U9 2017 (children born 2008) and U15 2017 (children born 2002) grades are keenly looking for players.
