Good Sports Awards gets canned
FOOTBALL Gympie has elected not to proceed with its 2010 Good Sports Awards after numerous clubs demonstrated a lack of interest in nominating.
Football Gympie secretary Pam Tindall said the decision was made at a club meeting last month ahead of the season's end.
“Many clubs were not interested in nominating, and our major sponsor was happy not to go ahead with awards,” she said.
Instead, the sponsorship will be channelled into the Under 19 Gympie Fire side for next season.
“It's worked out for everyone involved,” Tindall said.
The Good Sports Awards were originally designed to be similar to the Gympie Sportsman's Association Sports Star of the Year Awards.
Various award categories were to be thrown open for nominations, all aimed at giving recognition to the club's outstanding players, coaches and team officials.
With another successful football season over, the One Mile Ovals has been taken over by the Gympie Cricket Association.
Next season will see Football Gympie continue its expansion.
Forming a Gympie Under 19 Fire team will be a major achievement for the club. President Trevor Kirk is looking forward to getting the project off the ground.
