October 10th, 2021

Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Sam Stewart as Football Mid North Coast’s Newcastle Permanent Referee of the Year for 2021.

Sam officiates matches for Football Mid North Coast and has shown true dedication and passion for the game giving players, coaches and spectators the best experience possible.

Sam started the year officiating senior games and was assessed with an on field test for his Level 3 referees’ classification, which he passed. During the season Sam was appointed to reserve grade Coastal Premier League centres on a few occasions and was assistant referee for the CPL first grade matches.

Throughout the season Sam officiated at WPL/NPL, local junior and all-age matches amassing 36 centres and 30 assistant referee appointments.

Sam has been nominated for the NNSW Referee Academy and is always asking questions to senior referees and referee assessors on how he can improve his refereeing. He is a young man that wants to go places as a referee.

“Match officials have arguably the hardest job in sport,” NNSWF Community Football Manager Ross Hicks said.

“Sam has shown that he takes the match official role seriously and his dedication, passion and commitment contribute considerably to the positive football experience enjoyed by the players and spectators of matches he officiates.”

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

“Our community football referees take on an important role of keeping players safe and creating a great experience for players and spectators each and every week,” Power said.

“Newcastle Permanent would like to congratulate Sam for his generosity and valued contribution to the game.”
