Outgoing Forbes president Greg Grogan says it’s time for new blood on the Magpies committee as the black and whites prepare to launch into the 2018 Group 11 season.

Grogan stood down from the club’s top job after four years as president, while in 2013 he served as the Magpies’ vice president.

Grogan believes fresh ideas and new blood are key ingridents to ensure the club’s future success, which ahead of Wednesday night’s second attempt at filling all committee positions looked a touch bleak.

Matt Coleman has stepped up to fill Grogan’s shoes ahead of next season, though, with just the secretary’s job to be finalised.

Grogan said it was important the community rallied around the club with the view of many hands making light work for all involved.

“It’s a bit disappointing the community, as far as parents and the like, don’t come to meetings, don’t show interest,” he said.

“If people don’t start to show a bit of interest then we’ll lose these clubs. 

“We don’t want that. It’s a great club to be part of.

“People don’t realise, if you get five or six extra new faces there, there’s only a little bit to do.”

Grogan said while he was stepping back from the top job, he’ll still be there on game day at Spooner Oval to help Forbes.

“I’ll still help, go to a few meetings but you need new blood to run things.”
