Football night of nights

Football Far North Coast has much to celebrate and last Saturday night was an opportunity to bring players and representatives from our 26 affiliated clubs together in the presence of sponsors and civic leaders for a gala evening. 250 people gathered in the Lismore Workers Club auditorium, which was transformed into a wonderful theatre to acknowledge team and individual performance. In a great example of community and regional unity, football’s contribution to the broader benefits of society were acknowledged. The proposed Asia Pacific Football Institute in conjunction with Southern Cross University was highlighted as an example of the spirit of progress in the game locally. The list of winners included The Northern Rivers Echo Golden Boot awards for both Premier Men and Premier Women. Dave Annetts from Goonellabah FC, with a total of 23 goals, and Chelsea Coleman, from Alstonville FC with 28 goals, were the respective winners. The other major winners on the night were:
