The future of the club was unknown in early January, as no interest had been shown for the three executive positions.
“It didn’t look like the club was going anywhere, so I put my hand up to try and get the club off the ground,” said incoming president, Adrian O’Neill.
“I said I’d do the role for 12 months, but I might be there a bit longer - I’m sure there are younger ones out there that could do the job.
“The club is in a good financial position so it will be good to continue to give back to the community.”
Having served as president of Avondale Rugby League Football Club, near Wollongong, Mr O’Neill is seasoned for the role.
During his previous tenure as president, the club secured six premierships in six years.
On Tuesday, 7 February, the club announced that former NRL and international player, Will “Buddy” Robinson will coach the first grade side, with Chris Tolley stepping up to coach the women’s league tag team.
Training has already resumed – Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm.
“Many people have been away and on holidays, so now it would be great to rally up some more players for training,” Mr O’Neill said.
“We’ve got about nine for the women’s league tag, but only a couple of players for the men’s team, so we’re trying to get more interest.
The club is also hopin to field an Under 18’s team, following on from the successful under 17’s team in 2016.
The 2017 footy season kicks off on Saturday, 1 April.
Coonabarabran Rugby League Football club treasurer, Ron Slade, first grade coach, Will Robinson, president, Adrian O’Neill and secretary, Naomi Milsom, joined by players at training on Tuesday night.
