Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Max McCorkell as Macquarie Football’s Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year for 2020.
McCorkell was nominated by South Cardiff FC for his ongoing commitment and dedication to football.
McCorkell is a dedicated football volunteer who can be found at the club’s grounds most days. As vice president he does much of the work on the club’s fields, not only for South Cardiff JFC but for all users.
McCorkell tries his utmost to win as many grants for the club as possible to keep their grounds at a high standard.
He is at the club most Friday nights helping to set up for the weekend and is the first one there every Saturday to open the grounds and lead the team in setting up the four fields for play.
He is proactive and a huge asset to South Cardiff JFC. McCorkell is a wonderful rule follower and has helped with the COVID-19 changes every step of the way with a positive attitude.
Northern NSW Football Head of Football Development Peter Haynes said NNSWF were delighted to be able to recognise McCorkell’s contribution.
“Without volunteers such as Max our sport simply would not be in the position it currently enjoys,” Haynes said.
“Max’s contribution to South Cardiff JFC has been key to its ability to provide positive football experiences for all its members. I am pleased that NNSWF can thank and recognise Max on behalf of the sport.”
Newcastle Permanent Chief Customer Experience and Delivery Officer Paul Juergens congratulated McCorkell on becoming the recipient of the Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year award for Macquarie Football.
“Volunteers are at the heart of any club’s activities and operations,” Juergens said.
“This award recognises the great example of members giving back to their local club and community. Newcastle Permanent is proud to recognise and reward volunteers for their valuable contribution.”
As the winner of their Zone’s Volunteer of the Year award, McCorkell is now a nominee for Northern NSW Football’s Annual Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year award to be announced during the week commencing 26 October.
