Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Kootingal & District FC from Northern Inland as the Newcastle Permanent Club of the Month for July 2021.
Kootingal & District FC were named winners of the Newcastle Permanent Club of the Month award due to its significant contribution to the local community.
The club’s goal is not to win matches at any cost but the inclusiveness and enjoyment of the teams and games. This is a goal that is evident from the youngest teams to the most senior.
“Kootingal & District FC have done an outstanding job building a football community for its players, coaches and volunteers and it is a great to see a Northern Inland club win this award for July,” NNSWF Community Football Manager Ross Hicks said.
“We wish Kootingal & District FC all the best as they continue to develop as a club into the future.”
Newcastle Permanent Tamworth Branch Manager Julie Callander echoed Hicks’ sentiments and was pleased a Northern Inland club had been rewarded for its efforts.
“Whether it’s the experience provided to players, the activities the club has delivered or just introducing kids to the game of football, we congratulate Kootingal & District FC on being named Club of the Month winner for July,” Callander said.
Kootingal & District FC 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 their contribution to football on and off the field across areas including football experience, club activities, coach and volunteer management and special projects.
