BREAKING: CQ Capras’ head coach resigns

The CQ Capras are on the hunt for a new head coach following the resignation of David Faiumu.

The announcement was made on Monday afternoon, with CEO Peter White paying tribute to Faiumu and the contribution he had made to the club.

“David has been an integral part of the CQ Capras during the past three years, initially as an assistant Intrust Super Cup coach and over the past two years as head coach,” White said.

“David brought a positive culture, strong work ethic and high level of coaching expertise to the head coach role. The players and our club have benefited from these attributes.

“We respect David’s decision; however, we also look forward to his continued association with the Capras in the future.

“I know I speak on behalf of the board and staff when I say that he will be missed.”

Faiumu said his time at the Capras had been a “memorable experience with some lifelong relationships being forged”.

“I would like to thank my family, board, Capras staff, volunteers, sponsors, supporters, community groups and in particular the playing group for their unwavering support and for making my time here at the Capras an enjoyable experience,” he said.

“I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to lead the CQ Capras. I wish the club well and every success into the future.”

Recruitment for a new head coach is under way, with an announcement expected soon.
