Amos calls it quits

NORTH Queensland Cowboys utility Clint Amos will be swapping his boots and socks for a suit and tie in the coming months, working as the club's new business development manager.

The full-time role will see him work on building and servicing North Queensland's corporate partnership base.

Amos is well known throughout Queensland rugby league circles having had playing stints with the Mackay Cutters and Northern Pride in state league as well as the Cowboys and Gold Coast Titans in the NRL.

He also worked as business development executive with Coca Cola before his rugby league priorities took hold and said it felt the right to call it a day.

"I felt the timing was right. Life after football has to begin sometime," 28-year-old Amos said.

"I've had a good career in the NRL and I'm happy with what I achieved there."

Cowboys' commercial general manager Steve Mitchell said Amos would prove to be a strong asset for North Queensland's sales and marketing team.

"I'm sure he will be a success in his new position and our corporate partners will enjoy working with him," Mitchell said.

"It's great for our club that players like Clint can step up into roles like this one."
