Northern NSW Football congratulates Football Mid North Coast’s Newcastle Permanent Community Recognition Award winners for July.
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 Recognition 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, Football Mid North Coast 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, Football Mid North Coast and Newcastle Permanent congratulate all the recipients for July.
Volunteer of the Month
Glenn Shultz – Gloucester Scorpions FC
Glenn runs the barbecue every Saturday morning of the season which he has done for the last five years. Very rarely does he miss a week.
Everyone loves Glenn’s bacon and egg rolls and the kids love having a talk to him.
He cooks on average 140 B&E rolls every week, pretty much by himself.
He is a valued member of Gloucester Scorpions FC and contributes greatly to the success of the canteen and the club.
Referee of the Month
Noah stepped up and did the centre in an under-14s catch up match last Sunday.
He is young boy but he had the confidence to do it. All of his calls were correct and his signalling was really good.
Noah has the makings of a top referee with mentoring.
Coach of the Month
Craig Bulmer – Western Phoenix FC
Craig’s contribution to his under-18s girls team is incredible. As well as reviewing matches, Craig also does individual stats of every player to show what players did well and what they can focus on which has helped many individuals develop as players.
Craig has inspired his players, with the girls thanking him for his efforts and contribution.
