East Wagga-Kooringal president, Rob Richards, will step down this month happy with where the club is headed.
Richards set out three years ago to rejuvenate the Hawks and leaves after two senior grand finals and two reserve grade premierships.
“A lot of people have re-engaged with the club, past players and club juniors, and that’s really rewarding,” Richards said.
“It was to create an environment that people want to be a part of, to get the right playing group.”
Richards said the appointment of Gavin McMahon as coach was important, building on the work of predecessor Chris Jackson.
Improvements in infrastructure and sponsorship were other highlights.
“When you want to form relationships with people that have high credibility in the community, you’ve got to make sure your organisation ticks those boxes as well,” he said.
Richards’ successor will be elected at the club’s AGM on October 13.
