Goats on prowl for coach


The Geurie Goats are hoping to tie up their coaching position for next year by next Tuesday’s annual meeting.

The Central West President’s Cup club has been entertaining inquiries in recent weeks but according to secretary Catherine Thompson “nothing concrete has been worked out just yet”.

“We’ve had some interest shown and a few rumours that people may be interested but no applications in writing.

“The annual meeting is on Tuesday at the Mitchell Inn starting at 6.30pm and it would be good if the coaching job was settled.”

While Thompson and serving president Bill Dewar are still weighing up their options heading into the meeting, they have an application for treasurer which according to Thompson is very encouraging.

“It’s one of those jobs that is so important to any club and it’s great to have someone actually want to do the job,” she said.

The Goats missed the finals series last year but the club enjoyed an excellent year socially, highlighted by the appearance of Wallaby George Smith at the presentation night.

Meanwhile, creating a pathway for clubs to move between President’s Cup and the Blowes Menswear Cup is important for colts players, according to Bob Sullivan.

The Central West vice-president for President’s Cup said the issue was raised during the weekend’s Central West annual meeting.

However, he said the focus should be more on creating opportunities for colts players instead of entire clubs.

“We’ve got to look into it,” Sullivan said.

“It would be presumptive of me to say but I think most President’s Cup clubs are happy where they are.

“There are some clubs, though, that would have enough younger players to have a colts side but they can’t put them in the Blowes Cup under the current format.

“The colts just can’t go anywhere.”

Canowindra, who fielded second and third grade sides and colts in the Blowes Menswear Cup this year, is the most recent example of a club making the jump from the one-team President’s Cup.

Canowindra treasurer Mark Brown has highlighted giving the club’s colts players opportunities as a reason the Pythons want to remain in the Blowes Menswear Cup.

Sullivan said the CWRU might need to consider finding a way to integrate colts sides from President’s Cup into the Blowes Menswear Cup competition.

He admitted this would be difficult with the Blowes Cup format regularly changing.
