Newcastle Permanent Community Recognition Award winners announced for May

May 28th, 2021

Northern NSW Football congratulates Newcastle Football’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award winners for May.

The awards recognise the hard work and significant time volunteers, coaches and match officials contribute to Australia’s largest team sport.

NNSWF Head of Football Development Peter Haynes said the Newcastle Permanent Community Awards provided 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,” Haynes said.

“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 were 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 Bernadette Inglis congratulated each of the winners and thanked them for their contribution to the game.

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 in October.

Northern NSW Football, Newcastle Football and Newcastle Permanent congratulate all the recipients for October.

Volunteer of the Month

Tracy McMahon – Wallsend Junior FC

Wallsend Junior FC would not be the club it is without Tracy. She has been actively involved in Wallsend for many years before returning to an executive committee position last year.

Tracy can be seen everywhere from organising game days, operating the canteen to sorting uniforms  and whatever else is required.

But most amazingly is the way she approaches everything Wallsend Junior FC with a smile, a laugh and positive energy. Tracy has also taken on managing the club’s under-15s team.

There is nothing that is too much trouble and no one deserves more recognition than Tracy, with everything she does appreciated by the club and its members.

Referee of the Month

Isla Beck

Isla officiates matches for Hunter Valley Football and has shown true dedication and passion for the game giving players, coaches and spectators the best experience possible.

Isla runs lines on Friday nights and referees when her playing duties allow. In her second year as a Newcastle Football Referee, Isla has shown a positive attitude to learn. She has improved 100 per cent and communicates well with all referees she works with.

Coach of the Month

Snez Parezanovic – Cooks Hill United FC

Snez is described as an amazing coach who teaches skills while making the game so much fun for her under-8s players while also volunteering with the club.
