Dobson has secured an exciting opportunity with an NRL club and will also depart at the end of the season.
The former Seagulls halfback has been an assistant to Brideson since retiring in 2018 and coached the Colts to a premiership in 2021 in his first season in charge of a team.
Dobson would have been a natural successor to Brideson were it not for a great career opportunity that was presented to him.
CEO Hanan Laban said both coaches have left a positive impact on the Club.
“Adam and Michael are true club men, who have made huge contributions to the Seagulls,” Laban said.
“Adam is a former player and has had an association with the Club spanning over 14 years. As Head Coach he has created a high performance culture at the Club, which has led to team success and outstanding player development.
“Whilst it is sad to see him go, it is testament to Adam’s character that he is stepping away from his passion to spend more time with his family.
“Michael has received a great opportunity and he will be an asset to his new Club.
“He has done a great job managing our pathways and bringing through local talent from community football through to NRL opportunities.
“We wish both Adam and Michael well, they will always be Seagulls, and look forward to finishing off the season together, hopefully with a premiership.”
Wynnum Manly Seagulls merchandise was incredibly popular with the rugby league faithful in Hervey Bay, as sporting events of this level are few and far between in the region.
Galangoor Duwalami Healthcare ran free health checks and administered flu vaccinations to spectators, while many other market stalls were present to engage the local community.
The Hervey Bay Seagulls were serving great food from the canteen, including many healthy options to coincide with Deadly Choices’ health message, as the line remained 20 people deep all day.
Our McDonalds Seagulls Academy Hastings Deering Colts put in an impressive performance, leading 30-0 at half time and eventually running away with the game 58-6.
The team scored 11 tries, with Luke Philp kicking 7/11 conversions, to jump to 2nd place on the ladder after winning 7 games in a row.
Our Hostplus Cup team took on 2nd placed Sunshine Coast Falcons, who had looked impressive throughout the year with a number of Melbourne Storm players wearing the jersey as their affiliate club.
The Seagulls started will and led 20-0 at half time, before eventually winning 20-12 following a tight second half battle.
The BMD Wynnum Seagulls would like to extend our appreciation to the Hervey Bay Seagulls, Deadly Choices, Fraser Coast Regional Council and Galangoor Duwalami Primary Healthcare centre for all their efforts in the organisation and hosting our match in Hervey Bay.
