    Costello, ello, ello

    The politics at Brookvale have claimed another scalp. Manly Leagues Club boss David Costello has quit, lasting just over 12 months after arriving with much fanfare on a mandate for change.

    Interesting to see a story there with Justin Poore looking for a return to the NRL.Allowing for injury and his "I'm going to wreck my career,so I'm going to Parra" choice, he'd be a good pick-up with Kingy gone. Manly do have a good record of resurrecting players careers.

    Yes he blames his 'poor' stint at the Eels on injury. I think he's a one-time SOO player? Could he be a Josh Perry type?

    Completely different take on Costello's departure over at Phil's Place.

    Yes he got taught a lesson on manly politics at the club A G M a few months ago. Its no place for the faint hearted.
    I was told he had been telling people for months that the politics was making him sick.
    I am told that the leagues club is losing to much money every month and is struggling to pay its rent to the owners.(PENN)
    He wont be missed

    Good to read Magilla Thomson is on the leagues club board, he's a bit of a forgotten man but we wouldn't have a club if Ian Thomson hadn't of sealed the deal with Max Delmege in 2002.

    I spoke to Delmege about how he got involved and it was Peter ODwyer from the Jnr league introduced thomo to max. Thomo then had max meet Arko. That's when it started. Max was a sponsor of the Nth Eagles first and then put a deal together to buy the club. It was a better deal than the Penn's put up as it allowed the members to stay involved in the club. The Penn deal did not. Members voted on it in 2004. Penn took up shares in 2006.
    Thomo is a good club man and I hope he becomes Chairman of the Leagues club and not Zorba. Zorba is out lobbying for the job.

    The clubs a basket case. It needs someone with marketing skills, ZOrba? I don't think so. That club should be the place on the northern beaches that puts on quality entertainment, ala Enmore Theatre. There's nowhere on the beaches that puts on bands that attract. It remains just a watering hole for the dwindling pensioners.

    In a plus for the club....

    My son has been to a number of parties at the children's play cent that has been set up.

    It is well run, clean, place - not sure of how they work rent etc but i have been pleasantly surprised by it
