DEAL THE CARDS



 Alan Lowe played with Wyong Roos in 1980. Although he spent only a season with the Club, the friendships he made have endured. Alan and his wife Di lost their daughter Katie to bowel cancer in 2016. Katie was 27 years old. Lowey tried to make sense of it all through writing a book. The memoir contains stories about people he has met and ruminations on things he has learned over the years. Some of the contents are very funny. Others you may find sad. But it is always about what it is to be human and the shared experience of living within a community of other humans.

Hello to the Wyong Kangaroo Faithful,

My name is Alan Lowe. I was lucky enough to wear the Green and Gold of the Kangaroos in 1980.

Last year my beautiful daughter, Katie, passed away from Bowel Cancer. Aged 27 years young.

Our world will never be the same.

Wyong Roos donated gear to auction at a fundraiser for Katie. We will be eternally grateful. That night our mate and former Kangaroo, Tony Murray, topped the auction with a framed Parramatta jumper signed by the 81, 82 & 83 premiership sides.

Thanks, Muzza. Rugby League friendships last a lifetime, which only goes to prove that our game is without doubt, The Greatest Game of All

In honour of Katie I have written a book. The proceeds raised are going to:

Camp Quality,

The Mark Hughes Foundation,

Bowel Cancer Australia 

The Better Together Foundation.

We are also looking for sponsors to buy blocks of books to gift them to people in oncology wards around the country. Just to help brighten the days of people who have been dealt a bad hand. Sponsors can nominate a hospital if they wish.

If you would like to help us help others, the book is available on our webpage

www.dealthecards.com.au

We also have a Facebook page "Deal the Cards, Alan Lowe”, so please jump on and like us. Say g'day. We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks to NSW Captain, Boyd Cordner, for letting us use the photo.

The grainy old photo of Wyong Under 19’s 1980, if you look carefully, depicts Dave Lindsay, Brett Heasman, Steve Griffin, Geoff (Jeffro) Jones, Bruce (Big Brooster) Wilde, Frank Brajlih, Alan (Albert) Spiers, Steve (Wakka) Crompton, Coach Allan (Johnno) Johnston, Phil (Fimbles) Langley, Alan Lowe, Glen Lofts, Steve Marks, Ian (Thommo) Thompson, Steve (The Hulk) Baker and Ray Johnson. Still believe we were ripped off in that Grand Final boys.

Thanks to the Wyong Kangaroos for allowing us to promote our book on their webpage.

'We're the team on the coast, we're the team that win the most, we are the Wyong Kangaroos"; still my favourite team song.

Kind Regards

Alan Lowe

GRAND FINAL REPLAY

 

Round 1 of the CCDRL competition will see last year’s 1st Grade and Under 19 Grand Finalists, Wyong and Woy Woy, face off at Woy Woy Oval on Saturday 1 April.

The Woy Woy club is hosting an Old Boys function on the day, and a large crowd is expected.

The Roosters will no doubt be intent on revenging the loss of both premierships, as well as being very keen to start the new season on a positive note against the reigning Club Champions. There were some fireworks in 1st Grade each time the teams met last year, and there is likely to be little difference this time around.

The day will kick off with Ladies League Tag at 11.30am, and 1st Grade will take the field at 5.00pm.

OLD BOYS & SUPPORTERS RECEIVE $15,000 DONATION



Wyong Roos Old Boys not only curate the history of the Club, but in many ways embody it as well. Forging a link with our growing band of supporters has been an important development in bringing the past and future together, and to provide depth to the social life of Wyong Roos. The Old Boys & Supporters, as part of their ongoing involvement with the Club, are committed to sponsoring the Youth of the Year award, weekly Player of the Match awards, and rewarding those juniors making their top grade debuts. WRLCG, in acknowledging the efforts of the Old Boys & Supporters, resolved to kick start the fundraising with a donation of $15,000 over three years. Group Chairman, Kevin Pearce, was on deck to present the first instalment to President Terry Wand, and elaborated on the reasoning behind donation;

“The Club recognizes the contribution of our forebears to the development and growth of our game in the Wyong area. The Old Boys group commenced about 11 years ago, with a commitment to the encouragement of all those playing rugby league…now that the group embraces all supporters, this encouragement can only expand. The Club appreciates the Old Boys & Supporters want to raise funds through their own endeavours and activities. Nevertheless, in entering into this arrangement, the Club will give the group a flying start so they can really make an impact. On behalf of all our members and those playing rugby league for the Club, we thank you in anticipation of the continuation of your efforts for them.”

CLUB HISTORY



Wyong Rugby League Club is the oldest established Club on the Central Coast. It's history can be traced back to around 1900 & possibly as far back as 1893. It was born out of the district from Dooralong, Wyong, Jilliby, Tuggerah & Morriset. The initial home base was located at Baker Park in Central Wyong.

On the 19th May 1971 the Club purchased five & three quarter acres on what was then known as Arizona Road, Kanwal and at the princely sum of fifteen thousand dollars leased an adjoining thirteen acres with an option to buy. That option was taken upshortly after. The Crowe family owned the entire area and the original home was used as a clubhouse for meetings until it was sold and relocated to it's present location at Chelmsford Road, Charmhaven. The driving force behind the move was Morry Breen, a man of extraordinary vision after whom the main oval was named.

For the next two years there was a flurry of activity that saw the main oval and initial clubhouse built and culminated with the full liquor license being granted in the name of Life Member, Terry Wand. Trading commenced on 6th March 1973 under the management of Keith Riley. When Keith suddenly resigned in 1974 his assistant manager Harry Storm took over ably assisted by Hilton Robinson and Keith Barben.

In 1977 a further twenty six acres of adjoining land were purchased on the northern boundary of the existing property. Around 1984 renovations that included the present auditorium were completed. In 1986 under pressure from increased interest rates, a downturn in the economy and the introduction of 'random breath testing' the licensed club was placed under Official Management.

The Club remained under management until in June 1993 when full control was handed back to the Directors. The discharge of the debt coincided with the sale of land on the northern end of the property that the Club had developed into housing blocks.  In 1996 extensive renovations saw rationalisation and extension of the Clubs premises into it's present form.

In more recent years amalgamation with the former Masonic Club on the lake at Gorokan & the historic Wyong Bowling Club on the river at Wyong has seen the emergence of' The Wyong Leagues Club Group', an organisation still dedicated to promoting & fostering rugby league but with the resources now to promote a large range of other sports within the community. The Clubs activities within the local sporting community was recognised in 2003 when it was awarded the Clubs NSW Award for Encouragement of Sport from a strong field of licensed clubs within the state.
