LEAGUE VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD 2009
Illawarra's 2009 NSW Rugby League Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Berkley Junior Rugby League Frank Peppoloni in early December.
Every year different trophies are awarded to individual League Disricts. Frank was awarded the Illawarra's Col and Bill Purcell Award at Balmain Leagues Club on Sunday the 6th of December.
Representitives from the Illawarra attended the ceremony to support Frank being acknowledged for all his hard work.
Illawarra District Administrator, Julie Nicoll said, " Everyone would know that Rugby League is built on a foundation of volunteers and Frank is a worthy recipient for the 2009 season. His undying passion for the game, his club and the district is well known and on behalf of the Illawarra I congratulate Frank on his efforts."
The Illawarra is uniquely affiliated to both the CRL and NSWRL through the Steelers and the junior representative teams. The competition is directed by both CRL and NSWRL. Frank is pictured above with NSWRL General Manager, Geoff Carr.
