Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Newcastle Football for May.
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 Millett, 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 a local representative being recognised for their ongoing commitment,” Millet 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 May.
Referee of the Month
Anytime there is a shortage of referees or linesmen for either our Zone League sides or Interdistrict competition sides, John is the first one to put his hand up and get the job done whether it be competition games or trial games, there’s no fuss and no problems! When he first arrives at the grounds John is first to help and stays back to make sure every thing is packed away before leaving. Support like this make games days run so much smoother and all the time John puts in to helping clubs is greatly appreciated.
Volunteer of the Month
Greg has taken on the role of secretary, clothing coordinator, social/events organiser and has been a vital part of ensuring the club can run well and provide enjoyment to its members. He often cooks the BBQ’s and helps out wherever required and anyone in the club who asks for assistance. Despite his work commitments, he is often in charge of setting up the ground, linemarking, helping with the canteen and managing issues that arise. He has also managed to secure us several sponsors that have greatly assisted the clubs position and allowed the club to add much more value and culture than before.
Coach of the Month
Daniel is the coach of the women’s team and will always put his 100% best effort into every player in the team. He comes up with new ways to prepare his players for game situations and also takes an added interest into them on a personal level. He accounts for different individual’s emotions and the way they learn and then uses this knowledge to formulate a good strategy for both training sessions and games.
