Northern NSW Football is pleased to announce Angela Skennar as North Coast Football’s Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year for 2020.
Skennar was nominated by Yuraygir FC for her ongoing commitment and dedication to football.
Skennar worked hard to get the club to get players on the pitch this year.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, there was some reluctance for the club to field teams. But Angela ensured that the club’s children got to play football safely.
Northern NSW Football Head of Football Development Peter Haynes said NNSWF were delighted to be able to recognise Skennar’s contribution.
“Without volunteers such as Angela our sport simply would not be in the position it currently enjoys,” Haynes said.
“Angela’s contribution to Yuraygir FC has been key to its ability to provide positive football experiences for all its members. I am pleased that NNSWF can thank and recognise Angela on behalf of the sport.”
Newcastle Permanent Coffs Harbour Branch Manager, Lending Erica Farag congratulated Skennar on becoming the recipient of the Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year award for North Coast Football.
“Volunteers are at the heart of any club’s activities and operations,” Farag said.
“This award recognises the great example of members giving back to their local club and community. Newcastle Permanent is proud to recognise and reward volunteers for their valuable contribution.”
As the winner of their Zone’s Volunteer of the Year award, Skennar is now a nominee for Northern NSW Football’s Annual Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year award to be announced during the week commencing 26 October.
