The Toowoomba Clydesdales FOGS Colts Challenge side are on the lookout for players keen to grab their chance to compete in Queensland’s premier Under 20s competition.

The club – who also play in the statewide Under 16 Cyril Connell Cup and Under 18 Mal Meninga Cup competitions – are eager to give young players the opportunity to further their football development.

This upcoming season will focus on re-building the Clydesdales representative system as the club look ahead to re-installing Toowoomba and the South West as a premier rugby league region.

There is a proud history and plenty of success associated with the Clydesdales logo and that is something the club are striving to continue.

The region itself has enormous potential off the field as well; and young footballers considering moving to Toowoomba for a chance to compete in the Colts competition will also find there are many opportunities for them to set up their lives for the future through excellent jobs, careers and schooling in the region.

The FOGS Colts Challenge side this year boasts an experienced coaching staff headed by Dean Bosnich (former Cronulla player and high performance coach).

His assistants include Justin Murphy (ex NZ Warriors and Catalans Dragons), Eugene Seddon (former Queensland Cup player and Rangers representative) and Russell Bailey (experienced representative and multiple TRL premiership winning coach).

Players from across the South West region are encouraged to contact the club who have developed a regional training system that allows young players to train in their town and travel only once a week to be a part of the squad.

Training for the squad has already begun this year, but any players interested in attending for the first time and wishing to be considered for inclusion in the squad are invited to attend the upcoming sessions, participate in the training and meet the coaching staff.

Training sessions will be held on Mondays, Wednesday and Thursdays.

The club have recently completed work on the onsite gym, meeting and storage rooms at Gold Park, giving the Clydesdales a complete facility on the doorstep of our training field.

This is a fantastic development and resource for all Clydesdales squads and means young footballers in the region now have a training facility equal to that of Intrust Super Cup clubs.

For further information about how to sign on and join the club, contact head coach Dean Bosnich on 0427 165 910.

The FOGS Colts Challenge Competition will kick off this weekend, with the opening round supporting Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation Round
