Volunteer Recognition Recipient – Darren Oliver

Not only did Darren coach the Under 13.2 boys team, he also took on the critical role of Colts Chairman of Selectors. The three Colts Coaches marvelled how Darren could manage the “argy bargy” of competing interests along with adhering to the YJFL qualification process. Darren was also able to help out and fill in where necessary.
Volunteer Recognition Recipient – Ken Seakins
Presented by John Ramshaw (Colts 1 Assistant Coach and former Club Person of the Year).
Ken reflected on his own parents and their Community contributions, one he recognises as his natural impulse.
As the semi reluctant Colts 1 Team Manager, when Ken took the role on, the team was in safe hands. Ken, always the person to come to the aid, always helping out, he sets the example of that which embodies volunteering.
