As promised, a brief summary of last night's Manly-Warringah Rugby League Football Club AGM.
Most importantly - Life Membership was bestowed on the great Bill Hamilton, who was there to accept it. Herman was Player no. 172, 10 seasons for Manly, 189 games, 4 Grand Finals with 2 Premierships, a Kangaroo. The nomination speech by his old team mate Max Brown was a cracker.
Tony Mestrov attended again and spoke well (not that much new). Confident our recruitment would give us the depth in 2024 we were lacking this year. The NRL Club, Football Club and Leagues Club relationship restored. Bringing the community and local juniors back into the fold. The 'Manly Way' and former greats back as coaches. Las Vegas a commercial deal, but all 4 clubs happy to embrace it.
Both Mestrov and Cliffy Lyons (Chair of the MWRLFC) spoke strongly in favour of the Luke Brooks signing.
David O'Donnell, now Pathways and Women's Program manager spoke on the addition of a Sydney Shield team sponsored by the Leagues Club, and the Women's Premiership team as next step to NRLW in 3-4 years.
Noone asked specifically about Blacktown Workers - that remains as is, we assume.
None of the players attended this year, but several Life Members were there. Arko was an apology, as @The Wheel said elsewhere, he was receiving Life Membership of the SCG!
The Board of the Football Club was re-elected unopposed (Cliff Lyons, Julie Sibraa, Alan Thompson, Ian Thomson, Scotty Wilcox, Nick Curulli, Alf Czharn). They do a great job and get hold of the MWRLFC Annual Report if you can, it is a brilliant compilation of Sea Eagles history and stats, updated every year.

Blacktown didn't have a team in Ron Massey Cup this year hey. A Northern Beaches team in Sydney Shield seen reasonable.

Three interesting words IF then HOW & WHEN those better performing players from Shield may progress to Blacktown NSW cup.

Be interesting to know how they'll co exist.
