Representative. Scotchtown Football Club’s Lauren Bovill was crowned Circular Head Football Association Ambassador for 2016 at the annual presentation evening on Saturday.
Fiancee of Scotchtown Seniors coach Brent Burgess, Lauren joined Forest Stanley’s Krystle House, Redpa’s Joseph Armstrong and Irishtown’s Rachel Emmett in vying for the title.
“I have been fortunate enough to work with a wonderful array of committee members, football players, parents and community members,” Lauren said of her time as club ambassador this year.
Organising and hosting a variety of fundraising events throughout the season, Lauren said she most enjoyed supporting the wider community as well as her beloved club.
“Our 2016 season started with the Tasmanian bushfires. As our community came to terms with the devastation of the bushfires around Circular Head, the Scotchtown Football Club volunteers were cooking meals for local, state and interstate firefighters,” she said.
“We cooked hearty home style meals for the firefighters who had come off 12 hour shifts, exhausted from the heat and smoke.
“It was both a privilege and an honour to provide support and show our thanks to the local and interstate firemen.”
Lauren said the club experience had been fulfilling.
“I have really enjoyed my role as ambassador and have revelled in the opportunity to organise and run events and functions for the benefit of the Scotchtown Football Club, its supporters, players, committee members and community,” she said.
“It is easy to see why Scotchtown is such a great club, with loyal and patriotic past players who are proud of the yellow and black.”
