Newcastle Permanent Community Awards for 2019 Announced

November 8th, 2019

The Newcastle Permanent Community Awards for 2019 were announced recently. These awards provide the much needed recognition for the people that keep our game running throughout the year. The coaches, the volunteers and the referees contributing each week to their local footballing communities.

The winners of the Hunter Valley Football Community Awards are:


Coach of the Year

Joel Short

Joel coached across three different age groups at Cessnock United FC (U/7 & U/10) & Cessnock City Hornets (U/12) in 2019. Joel has created a great environment for his young players where they can feel comfortable to approach him about anything. He is always positive with his teams; showing the true meaning of the game to these up and coming footballers.


Volunteer of the Year

Cath Easdown

Cath is a tireless volunteer at Gresford Vacy FC – known as the glue of the club. Cath has devoted an enormous amount of time and energy to the club over the past 16 years. Not only is Cath the treasurer and has been so for the last decade, but she is also the backbone of the club – helping out in whatever way she can.


Referee of the Year

Tanya Jones

Throughout the year Tanya has excelled and become a very competent junior referee. Her ability to control and officiate games with confidence has impressed team officials, committee members and spectators alike throughout the 2019 season.
