Gympie Devils now look ahead

THE Devils may have still been celebrating their historic win yesterday, but president Scott Dodt and his loyal committee were already thinking about the 2011 season.

Celebrating at the Empire Hotel Sunday, Dodt said the Devils would only get better in the future.

“The win makes it so much easier next year to draw sponsors and players,” he said.

“Our number one goal is to retain the players we already have and then we will fill the gaps from players north and south.”

The Devils will lose Darren Burns due to retirement, Fijian winger Tobs Viravu who is going to play in Brisbane and Michael Blaik who says he is retiring.

Barry Berrigan has signalled he will return next year and coach John Greensill is looking forward to another year guiding the Devils.

Dodt said the club had already had new sponsors and players wanting to join.

“We've got to stay in the top two or three for the next few years,” Dodt said. “Everything is starting to fall into place,” he said.
