The St George Illawarra Dragons' board of directors wish to advise that Craig Young has formally commenced his new role as club chairman.
Young's long history and wealth of experience as a player, coach and administrator extends to all levels of rugby league including local, club, state and national teams.
Young has acted as a St George Illawarra board member and the club's integrity officer more recently, in addition to his long-held role as St George District chairman.
Young also previously had an esteemed career with the New South Wales Police Force.
As per the agreement established upon WIN's acquisition of the Illawarra component of the joint venture in 2018, Young replaces Andrew Gordon as chairman. Gordon remains on the Dragons' board.
"It's an honour to be appointed chairman of the St George Illawarra Dragons," Young said.
"I'd like to thank Andrew for his leadership over the past three years in what has been a very difficult period for the club.
"One of my key focuses will be to ensure the discipline and connection across the entirety of this proud organisation continues to progress in a positive manner."
"I, like our valued members, partners and fans, expect a competitive team. I am confident we have the right coaching and performance staff in place to get the best out of the squad so we are regularly competing in finals football."
