The Awards of Excellence - 2019

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 6:23 PM

What a stellar way to wrap up season 2019!  The Awards of Excellence were held before a packed venue at HBF Stadium last Friday night, marking the end of the junior football calendar for this year.

Congratulations to the Mosman Park JFC, who were the big winners on the night, taking out the Claremont Junior Club of the Year for 2019. 

West Australian Football Commission CEO, Gavin Taylor joined us for the event, being on stage to acknowledge all of Metro North's Volunteer of the Year nominees, including State winner John Sobolewski from the Sorrento Duncraig JFC.

Other special guest presenters included West Perth FC President Neale Fong, City of Wanneroo Mayor, Tracey Roberts and the Competition Directors from all three junior districts, Natalie Sharman, John Thurtell with Danni Dix stepping in for Lincoln Rollo.

The evening kicked off with pre-dinner entertainment from the WAFC's very own Matt DeBarro, followed by a poignant Welcome to Country from Sharon Kenney. We had plenty of laughs via the humour of special guest Marney McQueen, in all of her comedic guises and the event was capped off with a high energy performance from band Readymaid.

Major prize categories included Young Achiever of the Year, Auskick Volunteer of the Year and Umpire of the Year in the three Metro North districts.  In the coaching categories, prizes were awarded for most outstanding Modified, Youth and Senior Community coaches for 2019.
