Senior nominees are:
Emma is the canteen coordinator for TVFC but has essentially been a one woman canteen this season. Emma is a mother of 2 children whom play at the club on a Saturday as well as being a woman’s player on a Sunday herself. Emma arrives early at the club for Saturday home games to stock the canteen, then spend hours of her day serving whilst her children play. On alternate Sundays Emma will play in her own match then again spend the entire day behind the canteen helping out whilst the senior and reserves matches are on.
Behind the scenes Emma puts in a power of work – purchasing, stocking, manning, cleaning and cashing up the canteen. She is always available to volunteer with other club activities and has on numerous occasions assisted in day to day duties such as ground setup, pack up, club meetings and other voluntary activities.
Templar has been a jack of all trades in 2015. Templar spends hours of his time developing and administering the club website, he has on multiple occasions submitted applications for event licenses, printed resources such as business cards and club letterheads and catered for working parties all at his own expense.
In addition to this Templar was the U7s coach for the season, dedicating his Thursday afternoons and Saturday morning to the youngest playing members of TVFC. Templar himself is one of the oldest playing members of the club, starting regularly in the senior line-up each Sunday. Templar is a dedicated volunteer around the club who has assisted in running the club training sessions, fundraisers, refereeing, setup and pack up of fields and everything in between.
Club president Dylan Wyatt has put many hours into TVFC this season. In addition to his presidential duties attending meetings for the GSL and club Dylan has fulfilled the roles of player, part time coach and club volunteer, most weekends Dylan used his day off to either line fields or prepare the club for the weekend’s matches.
After seriously injuring himself early in the season Dylan persisted in playing where he was needed or filled in as a referee and linesman. After his surgery Dylan continued to volunteer his time where he could in the canteen or on the gate. Dylan has worked very hard in the off season in player recruitment for the men’s and women’s teams and coordinates most club efforts.
Shirley has started a brand new team this season from scratch. In order to do so undertook an FFA coaching course to gain her qualification before visiting every school within 30 kms to speak personally with either the kids or teachers. Shirley gathered enough players to form the club’s first “girls only” junior team and in her first year as coach got the team to the semi-finals.
Shirley has given an extraordinary effort as coach of the U13s girls team this season and recruited over a dozen players to TVFC
Matt has been an outstanding contributor to TVFC this season.
Matt has been available to help out wherever possible no matter time or day. There is barely a thing Matt didn’t stick his hand up and do this season. Matt gave away footy this year and spent his Saturdays lining fields and setting up nets. He has refereed the women’s matches in pouring rain, helped out as a linesman multiple times and when injured and unable to play spent entire days on the gate or in the canteen.
Matt volunteered to assist in the IGA BBQ fundraiser, ran stations at the 2 club training sessions and cooked the BBQ. Matt attends all club events, has filled in as a captain for the men’s squad and was available to help whenever required this season.
Ash has been extremely helpful this season. Returning to the club after a season off Ash has timetabled his study commitments in Melbourne to accommodate his commitment to TVFC. Each day Ash travels hours into the city for university, waking up at 4:30am some mornings so that he can complete his studies and get home before soccer training. Ash juggles this with tennis coaching commitments also and barely missed a session this season. Often on a Saturday he was one of a small handful of people whom also arrived at the ground to help in line marking and setup despite Saturdays being his only time off in his hectic schedule (which he usually fills with more study).
Wherever Ash is able to help, he does. Often running the line for the mens and womens games, helping in the canteen or on the gate, setting up and packing up the grounds.
The winner shall be announced on Saturday the 24th of October.
