To be the best junior rugby league
To provide a positive and active environment for the promotion and
development of rugby league in the Balmain District
Congratulations to Balmain District Junior Rugby League & Five Dock RSL Rugby League Life Member Norman Towells who has been awarded the Gordon Lowrie NSWRL Volunteer of the Year for 2018.
With almost 30 years of service to Five Dock & the Balmain District, Towells was chosed from nominees across the 12 Sydney Metropolitan districts for the prestigious award.
“This is totally unexpected; I have won this acclamation for doing what I thought was something everyone did,” said Mr Towells.
“I didn’t know anything about Rugby League until one of my sons started playing 29 years ago … the rest is history.
“I love being involved because of the lifelong friends you make and the influence you can have on children and players through sport.”
The Balmain District also took home another two awards with Carlingford Cougars awarded the NSWRL #RESPECT Award & Nellie Hage from Enfield Federals awarded the NSWRL Women in League Award.
Balmain Junior League are incredibly proud of Norman, Nellie and the Carlingford Cougars for their honours.
