RE/MAX Real Estate Services principal, Tony Williamson, is down one team member but he’s not disappointed.
Mr Williamson, a Cairns real estate identity, is also Chairman of the North Queensland rugby league club, Northern Pride, and his property manager, Connor Jones, was last week signed up by the Featherstone Rovers in West Yorkshire, UK.
“The contract came through on Friday and by Sunday Connor had left for the UK,” Mr Williamson said.
“He’s a great player, highly skilled, and very professional and respected in his real estate role.
“It’s like a double hit, losing him from both teams, but I have nothing but admiration for Connor and am excited for him. The RE/MAX team and the Club are totally thrilled for him.”
Mr Williams said that one of Northern Pride’s strategic goals was to help young players achieve their best in career and in life.
“We are proud of this opportunity, which Connor has earned, and are sure his game is about to go to another level.”
Mr Jones began his football career in in the Queensland town of Emerald. He went on to play for the Easts Tigers and the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs before joining the Northern Pride in 2017.
Northern Pride is a development club – and feeder club to the North Queensland Cowboys – built around the phrase ‘born and bred.’ The Club was formed to create a regionally based talent development pathway for players, coaches and administrators; and it competes in the QRL State competition and the Intrust Super Cup.
