Valleys Vultures Parent Club
The Club has enjoyed considerable success throughout its history, winning 34 A Grade premierships, the most recent of which was in 2011.
With the history of the Toowoomba Valleys RLFC and their strong foundation of players and supporters, the Valleys Vultures are proud to be part of the Valleys lineup and will strive to continue their solid reputation when we take to the field in the next GQ competition!
In addition to his ten years as a player and twelve as a coach with Bayside Ravens (including two junior Sunbowl titles), Coach Box’s coaching highlights
* QLD Sundevils Junior State Team – Back to Back Championships – 2006/2007
* Head Coach of the Queensland SunDevils, bringing home the Australian Gridiron League Championship Trophy with an undefeated campaign.
It was the chance to support the rebirth and development of gridiron in the Darling Downs that attracted him to the Vultures.
Toowoomba has a long and proud history of gridiron teams and players and with the foundational support of Toowoomba Valleys, I am excited to contribute to the Vultures in their inaugural year,” said Box.
Having served as State Director of Coaching and managed elite programs, we look forward to his contribution in 2015 and beyond.
Coach Holgate received representative honours for the Queensland State team in 2000, 2001 and 2003, as well as representing Australia as an Outside Linebacker (OLB) in 2001.
Taking a few years away from the sport, Coach Holgate returned to play for the Ipswich Cougars as a Fullback (FB) in 2007-2008 and then moved into a Player/Coach role with the Toowoomba Wolves from 2009-2011.
“Toowoomba has traditionally produced tough, smart football players. I’m looking forward to seeing the Vultures hit the paddock this year.”
