Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) is pleased to announce Bellbird Junior Football Club (JFC), from Hunter Valley Football as Newcastle Permanent Club of the Month Winner for June 2019.
Bellbird JFC was awarded as the winner of the Newcastle Permanent Club of the Month Award by creating a close-knit community environment within their club.
By creating and promoting numerous opportunities for players, volunteers, coaches and community members of all ages to be involved, it has led to strong retention within their club.
The club enhances these opportunities by involving teams in club events, such as raising money for the club to help contribute to the success of the club facilities.
“Bellbird JFC has successfully created a variety of opportunities for all interested and passionate about football,” NNSWF Senior Officer Community Football Ross Hicks commented.
“They are to be commended on their efforts of maintaining a comradery club ethos and for their retention of players, volunteers, coaches and committee members,” Hicks concluded.
Newcastle Permanent Cessnock Branch Manager, Jessica Burgoyne, echoed Hicks’ sentiments and is pleased a local Hunter Valley Football club has been rewarded for its efforts.
“Newcastle Permanent is committed to supporting great community initiatives and the Club of the Month Award provides us with the opportunity to recognise and reward clubs for the valuable contributions they make to their local area, both on and off the field,” Burgoyne said.
Bellbird JFC will receive a $250 First Touch Football Supplies gift voucher thanks to Newcastle Permanent that will allow the club to purchase new equipment to continue its efforts in growing the game in the Region.
The Newcastle Permanent Club of the Month Award recognises clubs for contribution to football on and off the playing field across areas including football experience, club activities, coach, volunteer management and special projects.
