Volunteer honoured for life
Webb is now a Stag forever
Bruce Webb has been involved with the Nanango Stags Rugby League Club since 1975 when he was roped in to play.
He has been part of the club ever since and has now been honoured as a life member.
Webb played three seasons for the Stags and was part of the 1976 squad which won the reserve grade grand final.
His son then became involved in junior league and Webb became vice president and then president in successive years in the 2000s.
He then later became a team manager when his son played senior football and continues to help in different roles around the club.
Webb played his last game of football when was 49 and scored a try in an old timers game although playing for the rival team.
“I didn’t actually play for Nanango; I played for Kingaroy and I scored a try for them,” he said.
Secretary of the club, Rebecca Jackson, put Webb’s name forward for the honour and he was an obvious choice to Stags president Brad Staples.
“I have been playing here for 15 years and he is part of the furniture to me, every time I have come down to footy Webby is always lingering around,” Staples said.
“When you have a look at the people who we have on the board as life members it really was a no- brainer.”
Webb is proud to have been chosen.
“It is a real honour because it means that people are grateful for what you have done,” he said.
“There is not that many life members and I just like helping out.
“If people are good to work for I don’t mind doing anything.”
Webb is passionate about football and what it gives to the town.
“Nanango has always had a lot of good players and it is good being involved with the community,” Webb said.
“It gives people in the town somewhere to go on a Saturday afternoon without having to leave the town; you can come down and watch a game of football and it is a good afternoon of entertainment.”
