Jan and Russell Receive Volunteer Award
Long serving club volunteers, Jan and Russell Priddle, were recently recognised with a Newcastle Permanent Award!
Jan and Russell were announced as Football Far North Coast volunteers of the month at our recent MiniRoos Gala Day on 4th Aug 2019.
Steve Mackney, FFNC General Manager, was on hand to present the award along with a representative from Newcastle Permanent.
Jan and Russell are life members of the club and have served in many roles over the years. Currently Jan is our very organised club secretary and Russell is our junior registrar. However they both do so much more!
Thank you Jan and Russell for your dedication to Villa FC and for making our club great. This award is very much deserved and your efforts are very much appreciated!

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) congratulates this month’s Newcastle Permanent Community Award Monthly Winners in Football Far North Coast for August.
The awards recognise the hard work and significant time volunteers, coaches and match officials contribute to Australia’s largest team sport.
NNSWF Senior Officer Community Football Ross Hicks said the Newcastle Permanent Community Awards provide an important opportunity to recognise those who make the game what it is today.
“Without this month’s winners, football simply would not be in the position it is, each of these winners has made an outstanding contribution to their clubs and deserve to be recognised,” Hicks said.
“Community Football relies on a collective effort and these awards reflect the appreciation extended to everyone who plays a role in progressing our game.
“I am pleased we are able to thank and acknowledge each of them on behalf of the sport, thanks to the support of our major sponsor, Newcastle Permanent.”
Each of the winners was selected from a number of nominations made by club colleagues and observers of the game. Each winner receives unique packs from Official Community Football Partner, Newcastle Permanent to help them in their endeavours.
Newcastle Permanent Lismore Branch Manager Sarah Lane congratulates each of the winners and thanks them for their contribution to the game.
“Newcastle Permanent’s Community Football Awards provide opportunities to recognise volunteers who generously give back to their clubs and communities. It is great to see a local representative being recognised for their ongoing commitment”, Lane said.
From the pool of monthly winners, Football Far North Coast will nominate one winner from each category to represent their Zone for the opportunity to be named “Newcastle Permanent Community Football Winner of the Year” to be announced at NNSWF’s Annual Awards Night in October.
Northern NSW Football, Football Far North Coast and Newcastle Permanent congratulate all the recipients for August.
