The final presentation of the evening was made to our club’s newest Life Member, Petamarie Mathews.  Petamarie becomes the fist female life member at TVFC and her and husband Brian become the first husband and wife life members also.  Petamarie worked for many years at the club, primarily as a committee member and as a dedicated volunteer in the roles of canteen coordinator and club treasurer.  She guided the club through some troubled financial periods and upon her departure from the role, handed the club over in a strong financial position. Petamarie also managed player registration and the dreaded money collection, that at the time came with the role. It was lovely for the club to recongnise the valuable contribution made by Petamarie over the many years at the club.

The TVFC Committee would like to thank all who contributed towards the running of the senior season.  From the players to the coaches. From the canteen volunteers to those on the gate. Your contributions have been greatly appreciated and are indeed essential for the running of any community club. Our thank also to the Courthouse Restaurant and Garden Bar for making our  presentation evening such a memorable experience.  Thank you to those who organised the evening and invested their time to ensure all present had a great evening.

Trafalgar Victory FC appreciates the ongoing support of its loyal players.  For those who are finishing up with the club this season, we thank you for your service to TVFC.  For those coming back to play/coach another season, thank you so much, you too are greatly appreciated. Enjoy your season break, recruit some new players to the club and we look forward to an even bigger and better 25th anniversary in season 2020.

TVFC CPOTY Nomination: Mark Judd

TVFC 2019 Club Person of the Year Nomination: Mark Judd

Nomination description:

Mark has made many contributions towards the club. My list below is a sample of what he does:

  1. Vice President – this role entails Mark to be available to deal with club matters as they arise.
  2. Registrar – this role is vital to the club being able to have players. Mark needs to administer the online registration system, review the registrations as they come in, co-ordinate with others if there are any issues and provide coaches with documentation confirming player registrations
  3. Website/Facebook/Media – Mark maintains the TVFC website and Facebook page. He spends hours on this updating information, uploading photos, reports and important information. Mark writes in the Traf News, Warragul Gazette & Latrobe Valley Express
  4. Building Infrastructure – Mark has attended many, many meetings with relevant parties (local/state/federal politicians) to promote the needs of the club in terms of building infrastructure, signage and change rooms.
  5. Sponsorship – Mark has personally arranged many sponsors for the club this year

There are so many other things that Mark does such as helping out in the canteen, as a referee, marking grounds, coordinates the Christmas tree fundraiser, coordinating events and many other things in the background that provide for the smooth running of the club.

Mark does all of this as a volunteer (unpaid). He does this work as he cares about the club and the people associated with it. I have done my best to capture the work that Mark does for the club but what I have written is probably just a snapshot of all of the vast amount of time he devotes to the club. I believe Mark would be a worthy recipient of this award.
