Football Far North Coast Celebrates 2019 season

September 3rd, 2019

The Football Far North Coast Awards Night on Saturday night saw 250 people representing the 24 clubs, sponsors and community guests celebrate another successful season.

A glittering function at the Lismore Workers Club auditorium recognised outstanding individual, team and club performances through 2019.

Amongst many highlights, Elsa Mangan who is the Lismore Thistles Premier Division captain was named Women’s Premier Division Player of the Year, while South Lismore FC captain Paddy Kable was named Men’s Premier Player of the Year.

The event was also an opportunity to recognise individual teams in the fourteen senior divisions that were declared as the Fair Play winners.

Lismore Thistles received a $500 merchandising voucher as the club was named the inaugural Fair Play Club, as a Football Far North Coast initiative to urge all participants and member clubs to promote more respect and a positive spirit of the game.

Donations were also made on behalf of the football community to the local Westpac Rescue Helicopter and Our Kids, with John Bancroft and Rebekah Battista on hand to speak on behalf of the respective organisations that do extraordinary work within the local region.

Long term strategic partners with Football Far North Coast Newcastle Permanent Building Society, Tursa Employment & Training and Lismore Workers Club, had delegates on hand to confirm a continued alignment with the sport and the community more broadly.
