CHFA. Scotchtown Football Club secretary Ricky Stewart has been nominated for the 2015 AFL Tasmania Volunteer of the Year awards.
Stewart was nominated by the Circular Head Football Association for his long-standing commitment to the club, having been actively involved since 1987.
The Tasmanian Football Awards will be held at the Country Club Tasmania this Saturday (November 7), to commemorate the contributions Stewart and other Tasmanian football volunteers make, with the Volunteer of the Year announced.
Whilst modest about his achievements, Stewart has fulfilled many important roles over the years.
“I’m very humbled to be nominated,” he said.
“There are so many other people who help out and that’s what makes footy clubs.
“Whatever I can do to help out: time keeping, canteen, match managing . . . You name it, I’ve done it.”
As well as this, Stewart has been a delegate for Scotchtown to the CHFA for the past 10 years and was awarded a Life Membership in 2012.
Now, Stewart’s son Joshua is following in his father’s footsteps by supporting the local club and playing with Scotchtown’s Under 17s.
“My son won the Circular Head Best and Fairest this year,” Stewart said.
“I’m very proud of him, and that he’s involved with the club.
“We’re a tight-knit club who have been brought together (over the years) and hope to go onto more success.”
