Craig White named Football Mid North Coast’s Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year

October 8th, 2021

Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Craig White as Football Mid North Coast’s Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year for 2021.

Craig is one of Football Mid North Coast’s senior referees who focuses on developing and coaching FMNC’s younger referees. Craig is around the grounds most match days coaching and assessing referees and still, on occasion, will step in and take on refereeing or assistant refereeing when required.

Craig’s involvement has been as a referee for many years and looks after weekly referee appointments for the northern part of FMNC and somehow finds time to also assist local club Port Saints with MiniRoos game leader appointments each week.

Craig has a strong passion for the game and refereeing and is also a strong supporter of the women’s game. He was part of the push to create girls only MiniRoos competitions when introduced a few seasons ago by FMNC.

“Finding volunteers as enthusiastic and selfless as Craig is the goal for all sporting clubs across Australia,” NNSWF Community Football Manager Ross Hicks said.

“His contribution has been key to Football Mid North Coast’s sustained success and it is satisfying to be able to acknowledge the effort and hard work Craig has provided over the years.”

Newcastle Permanent Port Macquarie Branch Manager Adam Power congratulated Craig on becoming the recipient of the Football Mid North Coast Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year Award.

“Volunteers are the vital backbone to football. Without dedicated volunteers like Craig, community football would not happen every weekend,” Power said.

“We thank and congratulate Craig for his valuable contribution.”
