CHRIS O'Grady, who has been at the helm of the Noosa Pirates for many, many years, has stepped down as president of the club.

O'Grady has led the Pirates through some difficult periods and leaves the outfit as one of the premier rugby league clubs in the SC and GRL competition, winning three grand finals and participating in another three in the past 12 years.

O'Grady said the past few years had seen the club struggle with numbers due to work commitments and work placements, but the players had held strong and been more than competitive under Dane Campbell and his coaching staff.

O'Grady also believes the club will remain strong and needs a leader who is committed to the club and willing to oversee the continued success of the Pirates.

The club failed to appoint a president at its AGM last Sunday and will hold a further meeting at the clubhouse on Sunday, November 18 at 11am to elect a new president and committee.

O'Grady believes there is that special person out there and if they need any advice or information as to what is required then he is more than willing to advise and assist them when required.

He can be contacted on 0402 537 244.

The club is still on the lookout for coaches in A-grade, Reserve Grade and Under-18 for next season.

If you are interested and require details then give Sue a call on 0409 055470.

Remember, rugby league football is the greatest game of all.
