Fiona was nominated by Boambee FC for her ongoing commitment and dedication to football.

Fiona has volunteered year after year at Boambee FC, and has always held multiple positions within
the club as well as serving as Club President.

Fiona performs multiple roles at the club which includes the recruitment of new players and is there for the coaches and managers, coordinating the MiniRoos program and ensuring the club’s success.

Fiona also manages to play in the over-30s women’s team and encourages both the younger and
older members to play their best having been instrumental in making the club a close knit
community and family.

“Finding volunteers as enthusiastic and selfless as Fiona is the goal for all sporting clubs across
Australia,” NNSWF Senior Officer Community Football Ross Hicks said.

“Without dedicated volunteers like Fiona, community football would not happen every weekend,” Farag said.

“We thank and congratulate Fiona for her valuable contribution.”

Fiona will receive a volunteer jacket and bag courtesy of Newcastle Permanent to assist them in
continuing to fulfil their valuable role at the club.
