Congratulations to Bob Hennessy on receiving the FNSW State Award at the FNSW State Dinner at Warwick Farm on Saturday night.
With over 40 years involvement in Football, Bob has been an integral part of Helensburgh Junior and Senior Football Clubs and was also a member of the Football South Coast Board. Here are some of Bob’s achievements:
- Championing the amalgamation of both the Junior and Senior Clubs into one strong united Club and now has 500 players. And thanks to his continued efforts, the Club has senior players (both men and women) coaching Junior teams
- Coached and mentored many youth over his years at the club, including coaching a women’s side, back when we only had the one, for 4 years.
- He has passionately supported the growth of female football in Helensburgh and the Club now boasts three Women’s Teams and five All Girls Junior Teams.
- Through leadership and hard work in applying for grants and community sponsorship the following projects have been completed:
- Completion of our Clubhouse, a project 40 years in the making;
- Construction and completion of a new storage facility, canteen and BBQ
- The installation of lighting at Rex Jackson Oval
- New drop in goals for both of our fields; and
- Refurbishment of the Clubs Grandstand
On behalf of everyone at FSC, we congratulate Bob on his achievements and the fantastic service he has provided to this great game of ours over so many years.
