SIXTEEN-year-old Alex Habgood has won Player of the Year and Female Player of the Year at the Nambucca Strikers end of year awards night last week.

Club President Jenna Welsh praised a stellar season for the Nambucca teenager.

“What a stellar season for this young lady, playing two games each week, with her juniors team and open women, the sportsmanship and the way she supported her teammates shows maturity way beyond her years.

“She displays all the key attributes that make her a role model to young girls within our club,” said Jenna.

Former Club President Paul Cue was inducted as a Club Life Member for his service to the club.

“Paul was President for eleven years, he also was a parent, coach and player.

“Now shifting his focus to refereeing the game, the dedication, passion and commitment to the Strikers and the game we all love, he has been a pivotal attribute to the club and a very deserving inductee,” said Jenna.

Women’s senior coach Rhys Jones congratulated Lilly Woodward and Virginia Arkell on their awards.

“Lilly Woodward won the women’s coaches award, Lilly played her heart out all season in centre of midfield and
Virginia Arkell won the encouragement award for the women’s team with a great first season of football,” said Rhys.
