Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Newcastle 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 Medowie Branch Manager, Mandie Newell congratulates each of the winners and thanks them for their contribution to the game.
“Volunteers, referees and coaches are the lifeblood of clubs and without their hard work games would not happen every weekend. Our thanks goes to the thousands across Northern NSW who give their time so generously and ensure players and spectators have a great experience on and off the field”, Newell said.
From the pool of monthly winners, Newcastle 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, Newcastle Football and Newcastle Permanent congratulate all the recipients for July.
