Former star makes comeback bid
Four-time premiership winning winger David Maryska has taken the next step in his bid to make a comeback for the Woy Woy Roosters next season.
After signing for the club in September, Maryska has joined fellow Roosters first grade hopefuls in their pre-Season training program, according to club marketing and promotions manager Mr Peter Read.
"The star of the club's 1998, 1999 and 2001 first grade premiership wins has played 76 first grade games for Woy Woy and hopes to add to that tally in 2010 alongside his brother Mick, who has moved across from Ourimbah," Mr Read said.
"Dave presently sits in second place behind another Woy Woy great Greg Hillard on the club's all-time pointscoring list with 732 points, and in 2001 broke the club record for the most points scored in a first grade game with 46 against Berkeley Vale.
"In breaking this record, Dave scored a club record seven tries and kicked nine goals.
"While playing with the Roosters between 1998 and 2002, Dave played in three first grade premiership winning teams, a reserve grade premiership winning team (2000), represented the Central Coast division in 2000 and 2001 and was Central Coast Rugby League's first grade highest point scorer in 1998 (184 points) and 1999 (176 points)."
Mr Read said with a record like this, all Woy Woy Roosters supporters would be hoping to see Maryska once again don the famous red and white in the top grade next year.
"I loved my time at Woy Woy and missed the club a lot," Mr Maryska said after spending the past six years playing rugby union with Avoca.
"If it works out I will be stoked to play with my brother Mick, but if it doesnt I will be a part of
the club's support team."
