“Volunteers are extremely important. There is a lot of pressure on clubs now and without volunteers it is impossible for clubs to succeed,” he said.
“It is a great way to reward the efforts of those that give so much to their respective clubs and communities.”
Moyston-Willaura’s Mick Davis was the winner in 2017.
He used football to get to know his new community when he moved to Moyston in 1999. Since then he has been on many committees and served as president four times and shown tremendous commitment to the Pumas.
