Newcastle Permanent Community Recognition Award winners announced for September

September 4th, 2020

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates Hunter Valley Football’s Newcastle Permanent Community Recognition Award winners for September.

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, 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 September.

Volunteer of the Month

Jodie Hancock – Metford Cobras FC

Jodie Hancock is the backbone of Metford Cobras FC

Hancock is the club’s secretary and without her, Metford Cobras FC would not be playing this season.

As well as playing in Metford’s over-35s and All Age women’s teams, Hancock has been the club’s main organiser in every aspect, every weekend without issue.

She has built an excellent committee and always gives 100 per cent. Hancock is a great communicator, is everybody’s mate and is always there to help. She has dedicated her life to making Metford Cobras FC a happy, fun-filled and passionate place to play football.

Coach of the Month

Lloyd Vitu – Rutherford FC

Lloyd Vitu coaches Rutherford FC’s under-7s team.

Vitu is incredibly encouraging, not only to his own team but also the opposition. He speaks positively to both teams and encourages good play on the field, often cheering, clapping and offering words of praise when either team scores.

Vitu sets a perfect example for MiniRoos coaches with his behaviour on and off the field.
