Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Geoff Mellon as Newcastle Football’s Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year for 2020.

Mellon was nominated by Kotara South FC for his commitment over the duration of his service to the club.

Mellon, the club’s under-12s coach, has been affiliated with Kotara South FC for many years. He is always there to help and does not just coach his team but guides and supports his players.

He acts as a taxi driver if kids cannot get to training or a game and is always there to motivate and support his players and their families.

Northern NSW Football Head of Football Development Peter Haynes said NNSWF were delighted to be able to recognise Mellon’s contribution.

“Coaching is one of the most important factors in the football experience had by our players,” Haynes said.

“It is important that coaches like Geoff continue the great work they are doing at Kotara South FC so that their players develop a love for the game and continue to have the best football experience possible.”

Newcastle Permanent Chief Customer Experience and Delivery Officer Paul Juergens congratulated Mellon on becoming the recipient of the Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year award for Newcastle Football.

“Coaches are integral in nurturing and developing the skills of young players to reach their full potential,” Juergens said.

“Newcastle Permanent is committed to supporting community football across northern NSW and recognising those coaches who demonstrate a passion and dedication to developing their teams.”

As the winner of their Zone’s Community Coach of the Year award, Mellon is now a nominee for Northern NSW Football’s Annual Newcastle Permanent Community Coach of the Year award to be announced during the week commencing 26 October.
