Roos look for­ward to next sea­son

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) - BY SARAH DEAN

The Corowa-Ruther­glen Foot­ball Net­ball Club Vote Count and Pre­sen­ta­tion Night was held on Fri­day evening and recog­nised not only play­ers but the vol­un­teers who en­sure the club keeps go­ing year af­ter year.

Club Per­son of the Year Award was awarded to hus­band and wife team Ni­cole and Terry Grif­fin.

Corowa-Ruther­glen Foot­ball Net­ball Club Pres­i­dent Gra­ham Hosier said the award was im­por­tant as it recog­nised vol­un­teers and the tire­less work they do for the club.

“Ni­cole and Terry are both wor­thy winners of the award,” he said.

“Ni­cole works hard to make sure the net­ball is ready each week and man­ages sides when peo­ple are away from time to time, she just jumps in and does it.

“She is also on the board and or­gan­ises so­cial func­tions and makes sure there is food there for the kids at th­ese events.

“Ni­cole was in charge of or­gan­is­ing a net­ball re­union ear­lier this year - 25 years of net­ball in the Ovens Mur­ray, which was great to see.

“Then we have Terry who helps out with the thirds foot­ball and makes sure the pies are go­ing on the cold days and on train­ing nights.”

Ni­cole said she felt em­bar­rassed to take out the vol­un­teer award since she is on the club board.

“You don’t do th­ese things to win awards or be recog­nised, you do it for the love of the club but it was a nice sur­prise for my hus­band and I,” she said.

“A lot of work went into or­gan­is­ing the net­ball re­union around Easter time and it was a great event.”

Mr Hosier said the club was look­ing for­ward to next sea­son.

“It’s a fresh start with a new coach for the se­niors and we are re­ally look­ing for­ward to it,” he said.

“We will have a new coach and a new di­rec­tion.

“Hope­fully we can get some re­cruits and some lo­cal kids back to the club.”

Mr Hosier took the op­por­tu­nity to thank the com­mu­nity, the vol­un­teers and the spon­sors.

“We want to thank ev­ery­one for stick­ing by the club, and it is peo­ple like Ni­cole and Terry that keeps our club go­ing and makes us strong,” he said.

“You need not only foot­ballers but vol­un­teers and good sup­port about the club.”

Un­der 16s award winners Molly King, Ally Hal­ton, Zali Spencer (ab­sent) Zoe McLeish and Coach Steph Clancy.

Corowa-Ruther­glen award win­ner in the 3rds Josh Tidd, Mac MacFar­land, James Han­ra­han, Tay­lor Baker, Jesse O’Donoghue, Jed Grif­fin and coach Beau Schilg. Ab­sent was Coach Joe Hansen.
