Facelift gives life to local footy

IT was only a few years ago when the Gympie Devils rugby league side was suffering a slump.

Barely capable of winning a game, the side languished at the bottom of the competition ladder and local interest promptly dropped.

However, the side has come a long way within a short period of time after turning its fortunes around last year.

Recruiting new blood breathed new life into the Devils and soon the results began to show on the field.

A string of wins last year showed what the Devils were capable of, and this year there is plenty of promise.

Public interest has returned, too, with scores of Gympie league fans turning out in force for home games and cheering on their home side.

The fans can see the potential and 2010 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for the Gympie Devils.

Four new recruits to the side has added depth and power and may be the winning formula for a team with great ambitions.
