The Cowra Eagles latest life member Guy Noble rarely misses a home game.
If he can't be at the club's Hartley Street ground on Saturday's for during winter, with grandkids trumping the Eagles in recent years, he manages to catch the club's games on Cluch TV.
A veteran of more than 37 years with the club, the former Old Boys and Reserve Grade prop forward recently joined the ranks of Eagles Life Members.
During his time with the club, after playing his early football with Cooma and Crookwell, Guy has been a regular member of the committee and has spent time on the club's coaching staff.
His coaching roles have seen him involved with the junior eagles as well as the senior sides.
"I certainly didn't expect it," Guy said of his life membership.
"It's an honour, because there aren't that many (life members).
"Over the year's I've been here I've seen blokes become life members and they did a bloody lot of work," Guy said.
At their recent annual general meeting the Eagles saw a changing of the guard with one of the club's more experienced heads Col Jeffs taking on the role of club president.
He takes on the role, his second time in the position, with the aim of getting the younger generation more involved in management of the club.
"Now is the time for me to get involved in the running of the club," Mr Jeffs said.
After two successful years on the paddock which has seen the club challenge for the Blowes Cup title and develop a women's side Jeffs said "I've got things I think we can change to make the club even stronger".
But he admitted he only wanted the role for the next two years.
One of his aims during that time is to encourage more involvement from the club's younger members.
'It's one thing to have success on the field but we need to make sure we drive the club off the field," he said.
"My goal is to get the younger generation running the club. We need to get back to the stage where we have people putting their hand up to fill (executive) positions."
Jeffs also makes mention of the club's healthy financial position which he hopes will make it a more attractive option for the club's youth to step up.
"It has a turnover comparable to a small business, we need to treat it as a business and encourage the younger ones to get more involved."
The Cowra Eagles have, possibly, the best facilities of any sporting club in Cowra.
"Over the last 10 years there has been a hell of a change in the infrastructure," he said.
"It's now about making sure we have the people coming through to keep it all going.
"We can't afford to be casual anymore, we have to have professional management.
"This is more second time around, but back the it was very casual.
"It's an exciting period that we need to take advantage of," Jeffs said.
