Newcastle Permanent Community Award Winners Announced for August

July 31st, 2020

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates Hunter Valley Football’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners for August.

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, Hunter Valley 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, Hunter Valley Football and Newcastle Permanent congratulate all the recipients for August.


Volunteer of the Month

Sarah Plessiet – Weston Junior FC

Sarah Plessiet, the Weston Junior FC club president, goes over and above for the club.

As the club runs a very small committee, Plessiet took on all the club’s COVID-19 safety responsibilities and recommendations recently.

Her hard work has ensured the club’s children and families have been able to get back on the field safely.

Plessiet lives and breathes the Weston Bears spirit and does everything, no matter how difficult, with a smile on her face.


Coach of the Month

Brad Merchant – Gresford Vacy FC

Brad Merchant, the club’s coach coordinator, has been involved with Gresford Vacy FC for a number of years, coaching teams as well as filling other roles within the club.

Merchant compiled an outline of activities for the club’s coaches to follow, providing structure for the 2020 season.


Referee of the Month

Matthew Dixon

Now in his second year as a referee, 15-year-old Matthew has enjoyed an outstanding improvement this year regarding his confidence. Not only in his refereeing ability, but also himself.
