COBDEN has elected a new president following Chris Walsh’s decision to stand down.

Walsh, who had spent the past three years in the role, will be replaced by Darren Mounsey as the figurehead of the club.

Mounsey said he was honoured to take on the presidency at the Bombers and praised Walsh for his forward thinking and decision making during his tenure.

“I did think long and hard about it and it’s an honour to take on the role,” he said.

“The footy club is a large part of the community and it’s an honour to take over from Chris.

“He did a fantastic job; he made a lot of big decisions that have stabilised the club.

“He’s still going to be around but he’s got kids now and will want to watch them but he and his committee have been fantastic.”

Mounsey will be supported by a new vice president, with Trevor Clarke taking over from Brendan Hutt, while Reggie Davis, David Molan and Mick Noy have joined the committee.
