Roys Recovery: Awards Evening

Join us as we present our prestigious Club Awards this Sunday 20th August at the Roys Recovery.

James Doughney Club Champion of the Year Award

U14’s and over Boys & Girls eligible.

The James Doughney Club Champion of the Year award is the Club’s most prestigious player award and recognises outstanding contribution and talent, taking into consideration on and off field conduct and inter-league representation. Nominees must always uphold the Clubs cultural values, have played with the FJFC for at least four seasons, displayed on-field leadership and a commitment to fair play, and not been found guilty or suspended in the year of nomination by the FJFC, YJFL or any development squad.

James Doughney (pronounced Dorney) has a passionate commitment to the all-round development of players. When a FJFC coach and administrator, he continually emphasised the importance of fair play, team play and striving to do the best you can at all times. A coach for four seasons (U10s, 11s and 13s), James also served at different times as Club Treasurer, Secretary and Player Advocate. Presented by Kaitlyn Ashmore.
