MUSWELLBROOK Eagles FC coach Brodern Adam-Smith's dedication to the sport was recently recognised.
Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) announced the mentor, who guided his all-age side to its grand final, as Hunter Valley Football's Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Month for August 2019.
Adam-Smith was nominated by Muswellbrook FC for his ongoing commitment to football.
"Clubs simply cannot run without the contribution of people like Brodern," NNSWF senior officer community football Ross Hicks said.
"His ongoing involvement with Muswellbrook FC has been outstanding and should be celebrated.
"The Eagles are a better football club for the contribution Brodern has made through his passion, hard work and willingness to 'roll the sleeves up' and help to provide the best football experience possible for Muswellbrook players, parents and spectators alike."
Newcastle Permanent branch manager Addie Parker congratulated Adam-Smith on the acknowledgement.
"We are delighted that a local volunteer has received this award and been recognised across Northern NSW for the incredible commitment they make to their club and community football," she said.
Adam-Smith will receive a volunteer jacket and bag courtesy of Newcastle Permanent to assist him in continuing to fulfil his valuable role at the club.
