Scott and Jenny Goyne and their young son Josh, have been recognised by the Belnorth Football Club for their outstanding contributions.

Jenny was named the Club Person of the Year and also received Life Membership in recognition of her many years of volunteer service. As the Registrar for the club's 12 senior teams, Jenny co-ordinates all the administration and management for the 200 senior players that represent the club and has also previously served as the club's competition registrar.

In addition, each Saturday during the season, Jenny is at the club's home ground in Giralang lending assistance wherever it is needed and earlier this year she was the driving force behind the event which raised $30,000 for the family of Ross Green, a young club member who had been diagnosed with leukaemia. The funds were donated to the Green family to help defray the costs associated with Ross's treatment and other related expenses.

Scott was also made a Life Member and received the President's Award in recognition of his four years of service as the Club's Treasurer, his role as Director of Development on the Board of the Blue Devils and his willingness to volunteer whenever and wherever needed.

Josh's contribution was recognised by being awarded the Junior Club Person of the Year. Josh, who received the Belconnen United Football Club Scholarship, has played with the club for six years having first played when he was four.

"With over 1,000 registered players, Belnorth are a great club and I thank all those volunteers who work so hard to make it all happen," said Mary Porter speaking at the recent presentation day.
