Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Macquarie Football for July.
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 CEO Terry Millet, congratulates each of the winners and thanks them for their contribution to the game.
“Newcastle Permanent’s Community Football Awards provide opportunities to recognise volunteers, referees and coaches who generously give back to their clubs and communities. It is great to see local representatives being recognised for their ongoing commitment,” Millett 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 July.
Referee of the Month
Tarly is a first year referee and has been very committed and willing to develop and improve her skills. She is bright and bubbly with a great attitude which shows out in her actions on the park.
Volunteer of the Month
Jason is not only the Vice President but also a Team Manager at the club. He gives up much more of his time than ever is asked or required. He is always at the ground from 7am every Saturday morning helping to set up the grounds even though teams are rostered on to do this. Jason is approachable, genuine and encourages kids of all ages to play and enjoy their football, being a former footballer himself. Jason never asks for recognition or accolades, but without him, Charlestown Junior Football Club could not achieve what it does week after week. He deserves to be recognised for his hard work and giving attitude to this club and the greater community.
Coach of the Month
Dave grabbed the opportunity to coach an U/12s team this season of which very few of the players had played together before. He quickly got the team playing as a team and now the team has begun to enjoy on field success.
