North Queensland stalwart Scott Bolton will leave the club at the conclusion of the 2019 season.
Bolton, who will be remembered as a club legend, bids farewell after 244 NRL appearances, which sees him sit fourth in all-time games played for the Cowboys.
His NRL career started in Round 4, 2007 against the Wests Tigers.
Highlights include winning the Cowboys' first ever premiership in 2015 and playing a significant role in the side’s unbelievable run to the 2017 grand final.
“As a kid from Innisfail (far north Queensland), just coming to the Cowboys in the mid-2000’s was fulfilling a life-long dream. I never imagined I’d go on to play for the club for 13 seasons,” he told cowboys.com.au.
“I’d like to thank my family, teammates, coaches and fans as well as all the sponsors of the club for all their support throughout my career.”
Cowboys Director of Football Peter Parr acknowledged Bolton’s impact on the club in his illustrious career.
“He’s one of the most selfless players I’ve seen in my time here,” Parr told the club's website.
“In my mind Scott Bolton is one of the great contributors, both on and off the field, in this club’s history.”
