Former Dolphins player and life member Terry Webb has helped drive its transition to the national stage in his role as Dolphins NRL board member in 2022.
He follows in the footsteps of his father, former long-time Chairman Des Webb, who helped set the club up for this moment before his death in 2011.
It’s been a busy period since the Australian Rugby League Commission awarded the club the 17th NRL licence on October 13, 2021, following an intense bid process driven by the board and incoming Dolphins NRL CEO Terry Reader.
Since then, the board has appointed Super Coach Wayne Bennett as Head Coach, signed players to build a club for not just its foundation year but also for the future, and recruited an off-field team to support their success.
Players signed include Felise Kaufusi, Tom Gilbert, Jesse and Kenny Bromwich, Euan Aitken, Anthony Milford, Kodi Nikorima, Ray Stone and Sean O’Sullivan.
They will be joined by a squad of rising stars who will have the chance to develop their game through the club’s pathways program.
The coaching team is also strong with Bennett at the helm and assistant coaches Kristian Woolf and Nathan Fine to back him up.
Webb has been appointed to the Dolphins NRL board, following his service on the Redcliffe Leagues Club board of directors since 2006.
He has been a Committee Member of The Redcliffe District Rugby League Football Club Incorporated since 1994, and a Life Member since 2011.
About Terry Webb
Webb started playing for the Redcliffe Dolphins in under-6s. He was also mascot/ball boy and also worked the scoreboard and cleared the ground on a Monday.
He played junior representative footy most years and transitioned to the senior ranks when he was 16 in 1977, making his first-grade debut in 1979 and also making the Brisbane rep team that same year.
He is Dolphin No. 221.
Webb played in Leeds and coached at Hunslet before also playing for the club and captaining the side.
He was involved as coach back in Australia with senior and junior teams at Redcliffe.
He follows in the footsteps of his late father Des Webb, who was the club’s long-time Chairman. Des Webb and the club’s other founding fathers set it up for the future, making key decisions including securing land at Redcliffe for their own playing field.
This land is now the site of the club’s stadium, Moreton Daily Stadium, health precinct and shopping centre.
