THE DWWWW Allies are vowing to push on into 2014 after an extraordinary meeting at the club stirred the passion of supporters to help the battling club on Monday night.

Around 80 members and supporters of the former powerhouse club turned out to the meeting which very possibly could have been its last.

Allies president Murray Farley said last night’s meeting was positive but there was still a big fight ahead.

“We are going to have a crack at it, there is still plenty of passion in the club for it to keep going so that’s what we will do,” Mr Farley said.

“The meeting was about explaining to the members where the club is at and the choices we face. We either have a crack at it or the other options aren’t good – if we went into recess the chances of cranking the club back up again are very slim.”

The search to fill the vacant senior coaching position is paramount to get the club back on its feet in the coming weeks.

“People were saying ‘I don’t want to see this club go so what do I need to do for it to go forward?’ that will lighten the work load a little bit and we might push ahead.”“We are not out of the woods yet but some people have stuck their hands up to help and that’s half the battle,” Mr Farley said.
