Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Conrad Swindall as Macquarie Football’s Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year for 2021.
Conrad was nominated by Morisset United FC for his commitment and service to the club and to football.
Conrad, 17, has dedicated his time to coaching Morisset United’s under-10/1s team since they were an under-7s side.
Conrad decided to coach rather than play this year due to his own school and work commitments, dedicating his time to his young team.
Conrad is regarded as a promising young coach, well respected by his players and able to listen to advice. Training sessions are always well organised and provides written feedback following matches.
“Coaching is one of the most crucial factors in the football experience for our players,” NNSWF Community Football Manager Ross Hicks said.
“It is important that coaches like Conrad maintain the great work they are doing at Morriset United FC so that their players develop a fondness for the game and continue to have the best football experience possible.”
Newcastle Permanent Chief Customer Experience and Delivery Officer Paul Juergens congratulated Conrad on becoming the recipient of the Macquarie Football Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year Award.
“Newcastle Permanent is delighted to recognise the efforts and contributions made by local coaches through our community awards recognition program,” Juergens said.
“Coaches like Conrad play a vital role in developing the skills and attitudes of young players and it’s a pleasure to recognise his vital contribution.”
