CHAIR’S REPORT

Association voting in favour of a merged Association – North West Sydney Football (NWSF) which became operational on 1 October 2019. Personally I would like to thank the people involved in achieving this including those who planted the seeds, fostered their growth and in particular the last working party of Jodie Camden, Tracey Williams, Denise Robinson, Mark Lockie, Lindsay Donald, Peter Nimmo and myself for the persistence and drive to see it eventuate.

The end of an era and a new beginning awaits supported by a solid history! That is the statement I would use to describe 2019 that has included reminiscing about the past and excitement about the future.

A new name brings with it new opportunities however we are confident the merged entity is well placed to assist clubs in the current challenges we all face in football including player and volunteer retention, upgrades to and use of facilities and administration of the game.

Competition-wise GHFA held our first summer 6 a side competition late last year at Christie Park which was an excellent initiative to utilise the fantastic facilities at Christie Park, and the new summer competition for 2019/20 has almost doubled in size. Walk Football (mixed) and Masters Football (Over 45) were also new initiatives in the football arena in an effort to retain potential retirees and encourage new players with alternative structures of the game. GHFA Spirit also introduced a pre-season tournament for U12 to O45.

Thanks to Buck, Frank, Lina, Lindsay, Mal, Peter N and Peter S for your active involvement in the last year of the GHFA board. It has been a pleasure working towards a common goal over the past few years and I am so proud of your professionalism, passion and commitment towards developing and improving football in our area. For those stepping down, I hope you enjoy some quality free time with your families and to those moving into other roles thanks again for your continued support.

The backbone of the Association is the administration of the local competition for our 30 clubs, and the winter season commenced with a return of the GHFA Cup as a pre-season event and success to Hills Hawks. Our regular competition maintained its strong focus on player enjoyment and participation and this is due to the excellent competition scheduling by Nikki Riddle as Competition Coordinator along with the close relationship and support from GHFRA and strength and commitment of our judicial tribunals who volunteer their time to enforce a zero tolerance to football abuse.

Finally, to the delegates and committee members of all our clubs we appreciate your commitment and support. We are motivated by your interest and this was evident in the quality and number of nominations we received for the positions available in the NWSF structure. Thanks to each and every one of you for offering to commit your time and energy to support football development for all.

Tim Thorne as Head of Football, along with Bruce Hort continued their drive to upskill club volunteers to become better coaches and allow players via the Academy to develop their football skills as a player pathway to the representative programme. Tim collaborated with GHFRA to qualify our youth Spirit players as referees and this excellent initiative saw an increase in referee coverage for our local games.

Below are the successful candidates: Association Chair – Karen Waud Football Management Committee Members – Dave Cooper, Steve Crawford, Buck Findlay, Michael Masulans, Peter Quessy, Nate Rushton.

Our office team of Mark Lockie, Jo Ryan and Nikki Riddle steered our Association again this year to great success with their passion, commitment and stakeholder engagement both internally with clubs and externally with our governing bodies, councils, sponsors and supporters.

The new Board of Mal Arnold, Jodie Camden, Lindsay Donald, Tracey Williams and myself look forward to working with all of you again in 2020.

It was a year of milestones for many clubs and we congratulate Hills Hawks, West Pennant Hills Cherrybrook on celebrating 50 years and Ryde Panthers 60 years with the Association.

Stay safe and enjoy the break! Helen Armson, GHFA Chair

The biggest milestone came in July with clubs of both GHFA and North West Sydney Women’s Football

GENERAL MANAGER’S REPORT

Facilities

Some highlights of the year in regards to facilities were the opening of the new clubhouse at Cheltenham Oval and the securing of funding support from the State Government by All Saints Hunters Hill for a synthetic field at Gladesville Reserve. We also look forward to seeing progress with Ryde Council’s plans to install a synthetic field at Westminster Park during 2020, and Stage 2 of the Christie Park Master Plan in 2021. Stage 2 includes a new amenities building and a number of small-sided synthetic fields.

Registration numbers grew slightly again in 2019 to 12,418. As can be seen in the chart below, following the loss of teams to the Hills Association in 2016, numbers have been steadily increasing. Growth is mainly in the minis age groups with junior and adult numbers holding relatively steady.

We supported an application to the FNSW Let’s Light Up Football grant from Ryde Council for funding for upgrading of lights at Tuckwell Park. The application was successful in obtaining a grant.

In 2019, we had 775 registered coaches and 829 officials. 8,850 matches were played over 103 competitions, with between 500 to 550 matches played each weekend.

Unfortunately, we could not use Tuckwell Park again this year due to its poor condition, but the field is being renovated over summer so we hope to have it back online in 2020. John Purchase was also not in suitable condition as was not used again this year. A decision was made this year to outsource the Christie Park canteen to a commercial operator when it was clear that the amount of work required to run it both days every weekend was too onerous for volunteers. This was a very successful outcome and we thank Khaled and his team for providing a high quality and professional service to Christie Park visitors. I was pleased to be able to assist the GHFA Board in finalising the details of the merger with North West Sydney Women’s Football Association this year and thank them for their support over the last 4 years. It has been a historic occasion for football in our region and we are looking forward to the new era for the organisation as North West Sydney Football Ltd. More than 230 women’s teams and 3,216 players will combine with the 1004 GHFA teams and 12,418 players putting us in the top five largest associations in NSW. Mark Lockie, General Manager

We used a total of 177 grounds this year. It was pleasing to be able to increase the number of club matches at Christie Park this year to 165, compared with 93 in 2018, with some clubs taking up the option of playing Friday nights for their O35 and O45 matches. The number of Sunday matches were reduced significantly from 464 to 212 as a result of re-opening of fields at Meadowbank and Morrison and the willingness of teams to play Friday and Saturday nights at venues such as West Epping, Christie Park and Pennant Hills Park. Thanks again for the assistance of host clubs in ensuring their fields are dressed for matches played on their fields, especially in cases where their fields were used as neutral venues. West Ryde Rovers should be thanked for setting up the numerous fields at Meadowbank every weekend. This was the second full year of use of electronic teamsheets throughout all competitions. Compliance increased throughout the year and by the end of the season, there were only limited incidents of teams not completing their teamsheets satisfactorily. This year we introduced a number of new competitions, as well as the re-introduction of the GHFA Cup and we hope to see them continue to grow in future years:

• Christie Park Summer Football – in its first year had 70 teams and 268 players

• Pre-season tournament run by Spirit FC at Christie Park – 22 teams from U12 to O45

• Masters Cup – a 9v9 tournament for O45s which had 4 teams.

Thanks to Jo Ryan and Nikki Riddle who both continued to provide outstanding service to our members, working closely with the club Registrars and delegates to ensure players were given every opportunity to play. I thank them for their great support and continued good humour in the face of a demanding workload. And we would like to recognise the exceptional work done this year by Club Registrars. A demanding job at the best of times, this year was made more of a challenge with the introduction of Play Football. Also thanks to the online services team at FNSW for their support to us and the clubs as we all negotiated a difficult transition to the new system. GHFA and a number of other Associations met regularly during the year to discuss the issues with Play Football and to put pressure on FFA to address the critical problems. At the time of writing a working party from NSW Associations is working with FFA to ensure these issues are resolved prior to the commencement of the 2020 season.

COMPETITIONS DIRECTOR REPORT

A big season, yet again, for our referee partner, GHFRA, with a very high level of game coverage, something that is the envy of every other Association. Thank-you to all of the referees for their time and effort to help make our season great. Continuing the RESPECT program in 2019, GHFA and GHFRA worked extensively in the off-season to formulate a combined approach to addressing the issue of match official abuse. All referees were given specific methodologies to address match official abuse at the field before it could grow out-of-hand, and GHFA specifically endorsed and implemented a zero tolerance approach to players, team officials or spectators that engaged in match officials abuse. I am pleased to say that this has been very successful in that the total number of incidents of match official abuse has dropped significantly over the past season, but tempered by the fact that those incidents that did occur have resulted in significant suspension or other penalties, especially for repeat offenders. This means that everyone can have a more enjoyable time participating or watching football in our Association.

Another big year for GHFA with the headline milestone being the merger of GHFA and NWSWF, but along the way we saw the return of the GHFA Cup, the introduction of Masters Football and Walk Football, the closest ever Premier League first grade competition, and further success with the RESPECT program. The GHFA Cup was back with a bang. Scheduled in the preseason and on our synthetic pitches, a very strong field was whittled down to Hills Hawks and Pennant Hills in the Grand Final at Christie Park on Friday 8 March 2019. Congratulations to Hills Hawks for winning 2-1 and claiming the first trophy of the season.

I would like to thank all those who have volunteered their time to serve on GHFA Disciplinary and Appeals Tribunals. Very capably managed by Lindsay Donald, these people have presided over the difficult and often confronting process to resolve and adjudicate on matters pertaining to football incidents throughout the year.

The Grading Committee once again did a fantastic job to get all the competitions underway. This year we had a similar competition structure to 2018 and so the results from 2018 assisted with providing all teams with a competitive and engaging competition. This was shown by the smaller number of regradings required after competition start. Thank-you to everyone on the Committee.

My very special thanks to Nikki Riddle in the GHFA office. She has again done a wonderful job as the Competitions Coordinator for 2019. Thanks also to Mark Lockie and Jo Ryan in the GHFA office, for their support in making our competitions happen. If you are fortunate enough to meet and chat with Nikki, Jo or Mark, please express your appreciation for all the work they have done on our behalf.

It is ironic that whilst drought affects most of Australia, we were fortunate that this meant only one washed out weekend during the season, maximising the playing opportunities for everyone.

This is the last year of GHFA in its current format. I look forward to the new NWSF competitions in 2020.

We had a very strong Premier League and Super League Competition in 2019. In fact, the Premier League first grade competition was the closest competition ever. Whilst Premiers WPH pulled away to a commanding lead with several rounds to go, the remaining teams were so close in the table that the last few rounds meant each team was playing for a finals berth at the same time as looking over their shoulder at the wooden spoon. Congratulations to West Pennant Hills for a well-deserved Premiership and Championship in both first grade and reserve grade. Unfortunately, it was Gladesville Ravens that finished in 10th position after the results of the final round.

Peter Samson, Competitions Director

Super League for 2019 was again complicated by a shortage of applicants to complete a 10 team competition. Unfortunately, Ararat could not field a squad for the season, but Epping FC were able to enter an additional squad to make Super League a 9 team competition. Congratulations to Ryde Saints United as Premiers in the first-grade competition, who can now look forward to Premier League action next season. Epping FC were premiers in reserve grade, a fantastic result for a squad that entered the competition late. We look forward to returning this grade to a full 10 team competition in 2019 and invite clubs already in Premier League to consider submitting an additional squad for Super League. Congratulations to Redbacks and Epping FC for winning the Championship Finals in first and reserve grades respectively. Congratulations to Epping FC as winners of the 2019 Club Championship. During the season we expanded the use of the synthetic pitches for Friday and Saturday evening games. This combined with the scheduling of U18 and U21 matches at 11:00am on Saturdays has meant that only a few Sunday games were required, significantly down on previous seasons. With more synthetic pitches and upgraded lighting coming to many grounds in the GHFA area, we hope we can expand these timeslots further and remove the need for regular Sunday matches. GHFA introduced both Masters Football and Walk Football in 2019. Whilst starting out small, all the participants had a fantastic time and we hope to see these competitions continue to grow in 2020 and provide a continuing access to the social and health benefits of football for our seniors. Thank-you to Tim Thorne for helping drive the establishment of these competitions. The introduction of Electronic Team Sheets for all competition grades in 2018 was bedded in and had only few minor issues during the season. This is now our system of choice and is beneficial to players, clubs and the Association over the use of paper team sheets. The new FFA system, PlayFootball, was introduced in late 2018 and created many issues that have mostly been resolved. It still remains to be seen what system will be enacted by FFA and/or FNSW, but current indications are that there will be no change to the use of PlayFootball in 2020. GHFA was represented in various FNSW State Competitions. Congratulations to WPH 12/1 and PEN All Age who both reached the semi-finals of the State Cup. GHFA is being ably represented in the FNSW Champion of Champions competitions. At the time of writing the following teams had made the semi finals: U21 EEW & AA WPH.

REPRESENTATIVE DIRECTOR’S REPORT

2019 GHFA ASSOCIATION YOUTH LEAGUE

This season started off fantastically for the representative teams in AYL and GHFA Spirit FC, with new systems in place and some great new staff on board, including the introduction of the high-performance team. On behalf of the Spirit representative committee and Gladesville Hornsby FA Board of Directors, I would like to acknowledge the coaches and players for their hard work at training and putting all those efforts onto the pitch. I have witnessed firsthand some great games of football this season and our teams all played great positive football.

2019 GHFA SPIRIT FC

Our players have been great role models in 2019 – particularly the senior players who attended youth and SAP game days, training and the GHFA Grand Final days - this has gone a long way to securing the right culture at our club and giving back to our local clubs that provide important financial support to Spirit FC. I am looking forward to this growing in 2020 and beyond. Unfortunately, just before the annual AYL trip to Bathurst we lost a great coach, friend and mentor in Peter Tindale. Peter was a big part of where the club is today and where it will go in the future. I would like to thank Mark, Jo & Nikki from the GHFA Office, for all their efforts and great work in 2019. They have done a fantastic job in getting the teams organised with teamwear, fundraising and everything else required to get the teams on the field. A special thank you to the Fundraising Committee for all their hard work especially Debbie Webb And Leanne Imbro. This year’s Social Night was a great night, raising much-needed funds. A big thank you to all the team managers for their efforts in 2019, organising teams, match days and keeping all parent and players up to date. A special mention to Tim Thorne, who has put together some fantastic processes and systems for a great future for NWS Spirit FC. Thank you for all you have done is season 2019 and looking forward to a big 2020. 2020 will bring on a new era with a new Association name - North West Sydney Football, and a fresh beginning to building a great club. I am looking forward to a bigger and better NWS AYL and Spirit FC in 2020. Frank Marchi Representative Football Director

COMMUNITY FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT REPORT

GHFA Spirit FC senior players also visited our local clubs with appearances at local fields and teams. We will be delivering school programs to 30 schools to support the development of participants at our local clubs over term 4 this year and term 1 next year. We would like to thank WSWFC and Soccer Kickstart for supporting this. Walking Football for over 50s footballers was introduced to our local players this year and has paved the way for introduction in 2020 with our local clubs being able to enter teams in both the winter Walking Football and Masters 9 a side teams on a Friday night a Christie Park. This season ended with a bang with our walk footballers playing at half time in the Derby and Bankwest Stadium. Nikki Riddle has been the driving force for this very important new form of football and we cannot thank her enough.

We took great strides from 2018 to 2019 in further developing our grassroots footballers, coaches and our game. We started this season meeting with our club Directors of Coaching to work through our coach education and development program. Out of this came a series of development sessions which came thick and fast at the start of the season.

Finally the association and local clubs introduced our C License Scholarship with 30 local club coaches and five additional female coaches having the opportunity to do this professional level license for free. The aim is then for them to take this expertise back to their local club. We had 15 coaches start this off with our first ever C License Youth run out of Christie Park in September. The coaches did a great job with them attending eight full days of learning and growing as coaches.

This started with our brand new GHFA Premier Events which were pre-season competitions aimed at helping to prepare our local teams for the season along with providing a great fun lead up to the season. 2019 competitions included the U15 and All Age tournaments which were both highly successful. Thanks to our GHFA Spirit FC players for refereeing the event and our coaching staff for supporting the event

With 2020 bringing a merging of the two associations we can now bring all our systems inline to support the entire footballing community which can then work together to grow the beautiful game across our whole region. Bring on 2020!

Our Coach Education Calendar was jam packed full of events, run by our Coach Education Manager - Bruce Hort, including: • Special Presentations:

• A Night with Ian Crook - WSWFC Academy TD

• Pre-Season Conditioning Inservice - Run by GHFA Spirit FC - Head of High Performance Brendan Hoyer

• FNSW Coaching Expo which included over 200 participants - thanks to Warren Grieves for putting together such a great program

• A Night with Craig Duncan at the Asian Cup - A great event with GHFA Spirit FC - Director of High Performance and former Socceroos, Matildas, Iran and Sydney FC Head of Sports Science

• Football Well Being with GHFA Spirit Head of Well Being - Sarah Young

• Youth Coaching - Front of Mind with Youth Safe

Peter Nimmo Tim Thorne Community Football Development Director GHFA Head of Football

• Certificates

• Miniroos courses at Christie Park and West Epping

• Skills Training Certificate at West Epping

• Game Training Certificate at Pennant Hills Park

• Senior Certificate - Christie Park (December 2019)

• GK Certificate - Christie Park (December 2019)

• 3 Goalkeeper Inservices at Campbell Park, Baronia Park and Christie Park over 2 days each - run by our GHFA Spirit FC coaches and players Our Academy had over 300 players developing their game to another level. Within this we also had over 25 coach apprentices who developed their coaching skills. Our 4v4 and 5v5 tournament at our Festival of Football brought in over 80 teams to have a wow of a time playing football in a fun tournament format. Our GHFA Spirit FC Back to Christie day saw a wall of yellow and black support for our team, turning our derby with Tigers into a very special event. Our local players got to walk out as mascots and play at half time, as did our SAP players. WSWFC once again ran their WSWFC School Cup at Christie Park with some great football being played. Well done to all schools who have supported this so well. Our local players took centre stage in our rep programs with our SAP and Youth teams in GHFA Spirit FC now making up 93% of the players in the squads. Thanks to our local and representative coaches for believing in our local players. Our representative players are also doing their bit to support our local competition by all 128 players from GHFA Spirit FC and GHFA AYL youth teams being qualified as referees. Our referee association did a great job in developing them having around 40 of them referee in our association in 2019. Thanks to Dave Anderson and Paul Parks for their leadership and support.

DISCIPLINARY DIRECTOR’S REPORT

Last but not least we have the GPT Panel Members. This pool of volunteer members are called upon each week to assist in the GPT hearings and provide great assistance and insight in times with various levels of football and life experience between them. All the panel members are listed elsewhere within this report, but I do want to extend a particular thanks to our Life Member Ian Kendal. Ian is a long term serving member of our GPT and his wisdom and guidance both within and outside of the GPT is greatly appreciated. Ian makes himself available every week and provides valuable insight to both the GPT members and also the appearing Members and Clubs.

The Judiciary Process in any sport can be challenging on many levels, and for GHFA this is particularly true. It is a constant battle to find the balance and fine line between trying to keep players on the field (which is a mantra of our GPT panels) and to deal with players that need to take some time off and reflect on their on and off field behaviour by virtue of suspensions.

The final thanks I wish to extend is to the GHFRA and in particular to Tom Emeleus and Peter Goodwin. GHFA and GHFRA have established a great working relationship over the last few years and it continues to grow. Peter, and Tom when Peter was unavailable, appear at every GPT hearing to provide advice to the GPT on aspects relating to the Laws of the Game, but more importantly have ensured process of open discussion and feedback to ensure we provide the best outcomes for Football in Gladesville Hornsby region.

At the beginning of the 2019 season, the GHFA Board made it very clear, in support of GHFRA and our Match Officials, that there would be a zero-tolerance attitude within the Disciplinary process in relation to Match Official abuse in any form. Unfortunately, while throughout the season it seemed as though we were on track to improve on previous years numbers, the run to the finals saw an increase in abuse of Match Officials with both R6 offences (42 – 2019/38 – 2018) and Temporary Dismissals (320 – 2019/314 – 2018).

Office Staff

GHFA have been fortunate with our awesome office staff of Mark, Jo and Nikki who have been a joy to work with all year. The office perform many functions on behalf of the Judiciary process, and their assistance is greatly appreciated.

The single biggest issue, and indeed the largest amount of administrative time spent in investigating complaints, was the playing of illegal/ineligible players. Borrowing of players is a large component of this, and Clubs need to ensure that teams are made aware of the constraints placed on whom they can borrow, and how it is to be conducted to ensure they are playing legally. Under the NWSF for 2020 and beyond, further controls will be implemented to ensure that teams that choose to not borrow players correctly, or that those teams that knowingly and willingly play unregistered players will be adequately dealt with under Team Misconduct provisions.

Last Words

The end of the 2019 Season sees not only the end of the year, but the transition from GHFA to NWSF, which also closes my time as Disciplinary Director of the GHFA.

Season Stats

• 2772 Yellow Cards (2737 - 2018/3277 – 2017)

The role of Disciplinary Director certainly was not an easy one and had many challenges, but it is a role that I have enjoyed for the most part. I would like to thank the Board members of GHFA for their support of not only myself, but the Judiciary process and its Volunteers throughout the year.

• 237 Red Cards (265 - 2018/325 – 2017)

• 31 GPT Cases, 39 Charged Individuals, 3 Clubs attended GPT Hearings

Lindsay Donald Disciplinary Director

• 412 Weeks of Suspension (Not including GPT Suspensions)

• 2 Team Dissent

• 2 Abandoned Games (Dissent)

Judiciary Volunteers

The Association continues to be served by some talented and passionate supporters of our game that give up countless hours to deal with the Judiciary aspects of our Football Association. I would firstly like to extend a huge thank you to Kathy Tracey, who this year has stepped down from her roles within GHFA Judiciary. Kathy has given up nine years serving on the Disciplinary Committee and the GPT. Another long-term member of our GPT process stepping down, and one that will be greatly missed is Geoff Schembri. Geoff has been the GPT Secretary for as long as I can remember and has always done a fine job of balancing his note taking while posing the difficult questions to the appearing members. Kathy and Geoff on behalf of GHFA and its member Clubs, we thank you for your service in the Judiciary system of GHFA. Of course, we rely on many volunteers to run the GPT and DC on a weekly basis, and the core of this is our GPT Chairpersons. Kath Odgers, Geoff Knowles and Anthony Scarcella, along with Geoff Schembri, have held court over the GPT hearings throughout the year. These members show great wisdom and care in chairing cases before the GPT, showing a great balance between guidance and mentoring and using the big stick when there is no other option. Each GPT case has a Secretary whose role is to take notes on the hearing while also interacting with the process, and many thanks again to Geoff Schembri, Kathy Tracey and Rebecca Di Giulio who have done a tremendous job in recording the often hectic conversations that are held during GPT hearings. The Appeals Tribunal did not have to sit for the 2019 season, however Austin Carwardine was waiting in the wings to serve as the Appeals Secretary, and I would like to thank Austin for his continued service within the Association.

GHFRA REPORT

TRUSTEES-1953/2010

On behalf of GHFRA’s 447 current members, I thank GHFA for another season of well-organised, amateur football and congratulate the Board and member clubs on the successful merger with NWSWF. We look forward to working with NWSF as a single association.

Year

Some statistics from the season. GHFRA:

- Supported ~5000 GHFA games from Under 11s up. For context, GHFRA covered a total of 8167 games including NWSWF, Football NSW, summer and school competitions

- Achieved a coverage rate on GHFA games of 89.3%, up slightly from last year

- Premier League, Super League and all Friday night games enjoyed 100% coverage, followed by U16s as the next best age group for coverage

- Coverage on U18 & U21 games improved significantly this year to be almost on par with the afternoon coverage. We thank NWSF’s move to balance the pay rate for all 90min games

- Fields between Epping and Meadowbank had the best coverage across the season, reflecting the higher number of referees from clubs in the area

- View St 2 set the benchmark for home wins with 65%, while you were most likely to win away on Meadowbank 10 and draw at Ron Payne

- Five grounds had a ref for every game of the year

- Games at Bill Mitchell saw an average of 7.4 goals scored, while Westminster was the lowest with an average of 4 goals per game; still a high-scoring season for football

On the disciplinary side, 3300 cards were issued, a slight fall from last year. Sin bins and referee abuse red cards were at a similar level to last year, but this overall statistic hides the good work done at some clubs to address the issue, with their clubs showing an improvement as a result. From our role assisting with the Fair Play calculation, it is clear that club and team leadership plays a huge role in influencing player behaviour: Five teams earned more than 30 cards this season and the top 10 with the most offences came from just five clubs. At the positive end, there is a healthy list of teams with no, or almost no, disciplinary sanctions at all and a small number of clubs dominate the list, again showing that club culture is influential with team behaviour. On a similar theme, congratulations to this year’s Fair Play winners. Contrary to some speculation, there are clubs of all sizes at both ends of the rankings. When we drill into the statistics, often there are just one or two teams heavily impacting a club’s ranking, and within that, just a handful of players. If club leaders want to see that detail for their club, please contact me and I’ll be happy to share it. Thank you to NWSF’s Disciplinary Committee and General Purposes Tribunal for helping keep the game enjoyable for all game participants, including referees. GHFRA particularly welcomes the ongoing pro-active steps NWSF and their member clubs have taken through the Respect program, as there’s no better way to tackle issues than before they even occur. Last year I put a call out to senior players and parents to consider refereeing. We had a reasonable response, but here’s an anecdote of someone who took up the challenge: An O35 player decided he’d have a go at refereeing while continuing to play. He quickly found he enjoyed it so much that he was asking for games on Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday. He finished his first season having refereed more games than anyone else, being awarded a grand final and also earning more than any of our members has in a single season previously. This one member contributed nearly 2% of the coverage of all NWSF games! While we’d love a dozen more like him, even coming on board and picking up a handful of games helps everyone enjoy their football more, as they’re games that would otherwise have no referee. So, why not consider adding refereeing to the ways you enjoy football, and encouraging others at your club to do so too? Details of our 2020 courses will be on our website shortly. Thank you to the GHFA Board, Mark and his hard working team at Christie, member clubs, supporters, and most of all the players, for another positive season. Tom Emeleus President GHFRA

GHFA CLUB FAIR PLAY AWARD

FNSW COMPETITION WINNERS

OBJECTIVE

During 2014 there was an increase in unsatisfactory behaviour towards our referees. GHFA reinforced the message of good behaviour to the clubs, but anecdotally it has had minimal effect. Numerous studies suggest when something is measured and published it improves. Further, by recognising good behaviour we have the opportunity to influence and reduce poor behaviour.

GHFA and the Referee’s association, GHFRA have been working together to measure at a club level a summary of yellow cards, red cards and incident reports during the year. The GHFA Fair Play Award is an annual award on behalf of GHFA to the club with the best Fair Play as measured by the lowest ratio at the conclusion of the season. Yellows, reds and incident reports are entered by the referees into their website and then the details are passed on to GHFA. GPT also records incident reports. A ratio is developed from a summary that counts the yellows, the different ‘classes’ of reds and the incident reports for each club and then uses the number of teams U16 and over in each club (as cards are rarely given below that) to reach a ratio to indicate the disciplinary record of each club. Previous winners have been: 2015 Beecroft 2016 West Ryde Eagles 2017 Old Ignatians 2018 Beecroft 2019 Roselea
