Newcastle Permanent Community Award Winners Announced for June
Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Newcastle 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.
“Newcastle Permanent is proud to support community football across Northern NSW and, through our Community Football Awards, to recognise the efforts of a local coach who demonstrates such passion and dedication to developing football in their region”, Williams 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 June.
Referee of the Month
Jarrah is one of Newcastle Football’s Instructing MiniRoos referees. He does a great job every game he is assigned to, and has been doing so for a couple of years. He is definitely a great asset.
Volunteer of the Month
Steven is always there to represent the club and be a familiar face for all the teams. He’s an absolutely tireless volunteer and gives much of his time to the club. Steve attends the ground each afternoon during the week to assess the condition if it’s raining. He updates the Newcastle CC app and the ground markings are kept intact by Steve. He is seen each weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, wearing the Duty Officer vest. The work Steve does makes him a very worthy winner.
Coach of the Month
After volunteering to coach this team, Roge took it upon himself to attend a coaching course in order to be equipped with all the skills and drills to engage the U/6 boys. From the very first session, the boys have been so eager to train and have not only progressed their abilities, but have had so much fun in the process. Roge puts a lot of thought and effort into the training sessions and it is so wonderful seeing such a positive sporting experience for them at such a young age. On game day, Roge provides a safe and enjoyable experience for the kids and parents and he manages to involve all kids equally, and he is a great example of sportsmanship to all the players, coaches and supporters. Roge is a great representative of the Merewether United Football Club as he constantly encourages fair play, not only within his own team, but on occasions even encouraged more positive comments between the boys in the opposing team.
