Newcastle Permanent Community Award Winners Announced for June
Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Macquarie Football for June.
The awards recognise the hard work and significant time volunteers, coaches and match officials contribute to Australia’s largest team sport.
NNSWF Community Football Manager, Peter Haynes said the Newcastle Permanent Community Awards provide an important opportunity to recognise those who make the game what it is today.
“Without this month’s winners, football simply would not be in the position it is, each of these winners has made an outstanding contribution to their clubs and deserve to be recognised.
“Community Football relies on a collective effort and these awards reflect the appreciation extended to everyone who plays a role in progressing our game.
“I am pleased we are able to thank and acknowledge each of them on behalf of the sport, thanks to the support of our major sponsor, Newcastle Permanent.”
Each of the winners was selected from a number of nominations made by club colleagues and observers of the game. Each winner receives unique packs from Official Community Football Partner, Newcastle Permanent to help them in their endeavours.
Newcastle Permanent Acting CEO, Mark Williams, congratulates each of the winners and thanks them for their contribution to the game.
“We are delighted that a local volunteer, referee and coach have received these awards and been recognised across Northern NSW for the incredible commitment they make to their club and community football”, Williams said.
From the pool of monthly winners, Macquarie Football will nominate one winner from each category to represent their Zone for the opportunity to be named “Newcastle Permanent Community Football Winner of the Year” to be announced at NNSWF’s Annual Awards Night in October.
Northern NSW Football, Macquarie Football and Newcastle Permanent congratulate all the recipients for June.
Referee of the Month
Grant recieves this award for his willingness to referee, along with his new found passion for refereeing. It is refreshing to see a new referee with energy for the commitment needed to referee regularly and consistently.
Volunteer of the Month
Adam has been coaching his U/16s team and also helps the U/5 teams when their coach has been unavailable. He is a very popular person in the club as all the kids love training with Adam and the parents are very happy as well. He has countlessly volunteered himself to coach teams and goalkeepers and help people when needed without even having to ask. He is a very vital part in the success of Southern Lakes United FC.
Coach of the Month
Chris is always supportive of every player and continues to encourage, build confidence and structure within the team. His job as a police officer takes up a lot of his time, but he never misses a training session or game.
His commitment to our team definitely doesn’t go unrecognised by the team and parents involved.
