Winner for the month of June 2019
Tuggeranong United
Paige Jensen has been a part of Tuggeranong United for thirteen years when her eldest child began playing at age 5. At the start of the 2019 season, United’s U12s team was left with no coach or manager and not enough player, so Paige took it upon herself to find more players to create a team.

Michelle Mellier

Winner for the month of August 2018
Belsouth FC
Michelle Mellier’s role at Belsouth is fairly simple: jack of all trades, master of many. Her primary role is to organise merchandise for the club, all the non-playing kit and has set up an online shop for the club to make selling their items easier.

Tanya Katsoulis

Winner for the month of June 2018
Gungahlin United
Tanya Katsoulis is someone that many people in local football will recognise: an ever-present at Gungahlin United matches and grounds, cooking up a storm in the canteen and feeding the hungry masses across an entire day of NPL or NPLW action.

Michelle Ramirez

Winner for the month of May 2018
Brindabella Blues
Michelle Ramirez got into coaching as her eldest son entered football, initially helping out as an assistant coach at Brindabella Blues while looking after children of her own. Michelle said that the Blues were a great club to come across and become a part of when she was looking to get her children into the sport.

Daniel Watts

Winner for the month of April 2018
Monaro Panthers
Daniel Watts is something of an inspector gadget at Monaro Panthers, taking on a number of roles within one of the region’s fastest-growing clubs. He started out as Junior Coordinator, working with the MiniRoos age groups and since then has dabbled in and currently undertakes a staggering amount of work to help Monaro tick over on weekends.
