October 8th, 2021

Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Kristen Birkett as Hunter Valley Football’s Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year for 2021.

Kristen is the heart and soul of Thornton Junior FC. How well the club is organised and structured as well as people being made to feel welcome and included is all due to Kristen’s hard work and dedication.

The club secretary spends countless hours working on all aspects of running the club and is always available to help and assist with questions or problems.

Week in, week out Thornton Junior FC’s 38 teams run like clockwork thanks to Kristen’s commitment.

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

“Her contribution has been key in the club’s sustained success and it is satisfying to be able to acknowledge the effort and hard work Kristen has provided Thornton Junior FC over the years.”

Newcastle Permanent Chief Customer Experience and Delivery Officer Paul Juergens congratulated Kristen on becoming the recipient of the Hunter Valley Football Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year Award.

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

“We thank and congratulate Kristen for her valuable contribution.”
