Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Newcastle Football for April.
The awards recognise the hard work and significant time volunteers, coaches and match officials contribute to Australia’s largest team sport.
NNSWF Senior Officer Community Football, Ross Hicks 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 Salamander Bay Branch Manager, Vicki York, congratulates each of the winners and thanks them for their contribution to the game.
“Volunteers, referees and coaches are the lifeblood of football 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,” York 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 April.

Coach of the Month
Chloe was a new coach last year and over the year developed and bonded with her team in a really significant way. This year she’s taken on board coaching our Zone Community League teams meaning that she is now responsible for the coaching and mentoring of over 32 women. Chloe has been an instrumental part of the grading process this year, engaging with players, coaches and committee members ensuring cooperation, coordination and enjoyment from all perspectives. She is a supportive coach that is always looking to develop her skills and her knowledge and the effort that she puts into the club and her team is reflective of this.
