MESSAGE FROM FOOTBALL CLUB CHAIRMAN, BOB STEVENSON
The Manly-Warringah Rugby League Football Club has an amazing history and continues to be one of the most successful clubs of the modern era.
It is with great pride that I support the team, the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, and am immensely honoured to now hold the role of Chairman of this great Football Club.
After five years on the Board representing Football Club members, my new role as Chairman presents an exciting challenge and one I look forward to.
To Bob Reilly – thank you for your exemplary service as our previous Chairman. The Board salutes your dedication in representing us, the members, and continuing to protect and achieve the goals of our Club.
To my fellow board members – I look forward to building upon the successes we have achieved and continuing to work with you in what will be an exciting period of growth for our Club.
To our members – thank you for your support. We represent you, so we encourage communication and need your input - please feel free to contact us to share your thoughts and ideas.
By now you would have received the first edition of the Maroon & White News. This represents just one way we hope to reach out to all our members, no matter where you live.
We will soon be introducing some new and exciting initiatives to showcase our Club’s great traditions and further preserve our history. We will update you on these significant plans in the coming months.
Remember, all the funds that we raise are invested in equity (shares) of the Sea Eagles, ensuring that we, the Football Club members, continue to have a say in the running of our Club.
Please spread the word and let people know what the Football Club is all about and why we play such an important role in the ownership structure of the Sea Eagles.
You can help grow our Club by encouraging all Manly fans to join as Football Club members.
We also work closely with Sea Eagles General Manager David Perry and his management team at Narrabeen. It is encouraging to see the results they are achieving. Increased revenue, notable success in partnership and sponsorship arrangements and of course the rise in the number of Sea Eagles’ members are all great to see. These results are only achieved by a lot of hard work behind the scenes, so my thanks and congratulations to all concerned.
Membership of the Sea Eagles is a key component in supporting your team financially. This helps ensure that we continue to have a successful NRL team with the skilled coaching, medical and administrative infrastructure that is essential to support it.
I encourage all Football Club members to visit the Sea Eagles membership page and consider joining http://membership.seaeagles.com.au/.
Last year was a great year for the Sea Eagles with another Grand Final appearance. Here’s hoping that Tooves and the team continue to perform as well as they have and that, hopefully, come October we will be Premiers again.
I look forward to the coming year and….
