Chairman’s Report

CEO’s Report

BILL WALKER

David Eland

It gives me great pleasure to present you with the 2012.13 Chairman’s Report on the eve of a year which will be eventful and no doubt memorable for the Northern NSW region and the entire football family. Whilst the international spotlight will fall on Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, we will have an additional focus on our preparations for the 2015 Asian Cup, with four matches to be hosted in Newcastle and the development of our ”Home of Football”, to be opened at Speers Point in December 2014. In relation to this facility, I would like to begin by outlining the great achievement which was accomplished by a dedicated team from Lake Macquarie City Council (LMCC), Northern NSW Football (NNSWF), Macquarie Football, ADW Johnson and Court Craft, as well as Chief Executive Officer David Eland and Finance Manager Brendan Clarke. The September announcement of the successful bid for the provision of $7.3m in funding from the Hunter Infrastructure and Investment Fund towards the establishment of a “Home of Football” was the major highlight of the year. The Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility will serve to benefit NNSWF’s Members, local communities and provide a lasting legacy for the sport in the region.

The inaugural year of the Emerging Jets Program, a talented player pathway in partnership with the Newcastle Jets and Football Federation Australia, commenced in December 2012. Teams participated in competitions including the NBN State League and Herald Women’s Premier League and the program will continue into 2013.14. The program establishes a solid foundation for the development of talented male and female players from the Region and is fostering the next generation of Socceroos and Matildas to continue the fine tradition of representative players coming from this Region. At a grassroots level, we have continued our Junior Football partnership with Newcastle Permanent Building Society and enter the final year of a three year agreement in 2013.14. The sponsorship represents the largest junior football sponsorship of its type in Northern NSW Football history and since its inception, has seen entry level player registrations increase year on year. Our Member Zones and Standing Committees have continued to work to adopt and implement key strategic initiatives within their respective regions and will continue to be active in the development of Strategic Plans and Operational Plans

beyond the conclusion of the current Strategic Plan period in 2014. I’d like to take the opportunity to thank our stakeholders; the volunteers, players, coaches, sponsors, match officials, parents and club officials for your contribution to our great game as we enter 2014, the year of the World Cup in Brazil and the establishment of a “Home of Football” for Northern NSW.

Bill Walker Chairman

The allocation of $7.3m from the NSW State Government’s Hunter Infrastructure and Investment Fund towards the establishment of a “Home of Football” at Speers Point Park on the shores of Lake Macquarie will ensure that season 2013 is long remembered as a defining moment for Northern NSW Football and the code throughout Northern NSW. The establishment of the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility will build Northern NSW Football’s capacity to grow, develop and promote the sport to an unprecedented level and provide an enduring legacy which will benefit future generations of participants. My appreciation is extended on behalf of NNSWF to the myriad of stakeholders including but not limited to our member zones, clubs, local schools, Government Agencies, Government Ministers, Members of Parliament, Newcastle Jets, Newcastle Herald, NBN Television and FFA who supported the project and NNSWF’s awareness campaign which highlighted the vital need and enormous support for the establishment of a “home” for the region’s largest sport. Special mention must be made of Macquarie Football and Lake Macquarie City Council (LMCC) who were with us “every step of the way” and shared our vision to provide the region with a world class football facility. LMCC staff Greg Weir and Kate Jordan’s preparation of the ultimately successful funding submission is an indication of their expertise and professionalism. NNSWF’s Board of Director’s patience, faith and

unwavering support throughout the Government’s 13 months of deliberation in the face of mounting feasibility related expenses is also worthy of special recognition. Finance Manager Brendan Clarke expertly co-ordinated the feasibility activity in conjunction with our consultants, ADW Johnston and managed the initial feasibility funding agreement with Regional Development Australia. Marketing and Communications Manager David Cromarty and his team also deserve praise for the development and execution of the comprehensive public relations campaign which ensured our project remained “front of mind” as we competed for funding with 48 other worthy projects. The securing of the funding required to establish the “Home of Football” will be recognised as the year’s, if not the organisation’s, biggest achievement to date, however NNSWF remained focused throughout 2012.13 on the core goals outlined in our strategic plan and our vision to be recognised as the number one sport throughout Northern NSW. Some of the key strategic activities that the Executive will expand upon in their reports included the facilitation of inaugural strategic plans with a number of member zones, a comprehensive review of officiating, ongoing market and stakeholder research, the final rollout of the FFA’s online registration system, implementation of the National Premier Leagues’ application process, the inaugural execution of the ground breaking Emerging

Jets Program, management of the Newcastle Jets’ participation in the Westfield W-League, the establishment of a strategic plan to guide the implementation of high performance programs throughout Regional Northern NSW and an external review of the 2012 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING company’s internal controls and processes.

NOTICE is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Members of Northern NSW Football Limited will be held on Sunday 9 December 2012 at:

Key Performance Area: Community Football Sponsor: Community Football Manager, Peter Haynes

Strategic Goal: In collaboration with our members and other stakeholders implement sustainable programs of excellence which aim to optimise the participation and enjoyment of players, coaches, referees and volunteers at the grassroots of the sport throughout Northern NSW.

Key Success Measure Increase the total number of registered players throughout Northern NSW in 2013 to 53,000 Increase the total number of registered girl players throughout Northern NSW in 2013 to 9500

Community Football programs continued to expand during 2012.13 through the implementation of key strategies. These strategies included increasing football participation; retention of existing players, coaches, referees and volunteers; maintaining a high standard of coaching and refereeing; and enhancing the football experience of participants. 2012.13 saw an overall increase in football participation by 2.12%. Entry level participation increased by 3.03%, with junior football participation 0.69%, senior participation 1.01%, futsal 21.1% and nontraditional participation increased by 25.9%. This growth can be attributed to the success of NNSWF’s targeted advertising campaign, a series of “below the line” promotions which directly targeted players from 2012, maintenance of NNSWF’s component of all player registration fees, the continued provision of a free football and pair of shin pads to every Entry Level participant as part of the Newcastle Permanent Junior Football sponsorship and the continued success of NNSWF’s off-season or non-traditional football programs. NNSWF continued to enjoy a positive working relationship with the Hunter Sports Group. Through this partnership opportunities were provided for thousands of local primary school aged students to engage with current Newcastle Jets Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League players as well as local Matildas and Socceroos through programs

Outcome • 52,221

• 10,772

such as the FFA School 5-a-side Gala Days, the Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League Coaching Clinic, Jets Half-Time small-sided football demonstrations and various ‘Girls Football Week’ activities. Female participation increased to 10,772 players in 2012.13 with key contributors to this growth being the continued success and growth of ‘Girls Only’ small-sided football, the continuation of the Quick Kicks program and the increased popularity of non-traditional football programs. Over 1700 girls engaged in football activities throughout NNSWF’s second annual ‘Girls Football Week’, which included Girls Only skills clinics, a Girls Only High School gala day, Female Only Grassroots Coaching Certificate Courses and a Women’s Premier League “Mother’s Day Round” hosted by Adamstown Rosebud JFC and Football Mid North Coast. I would like to thank Female Participation Officer, Nyssa Suchanow, for her passion and dedication to the growth of female football in NNSWF. NNSWF was reinstated as the governing body responsible for the management of the Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League (WWL) team in 2012.13. Community engagement activities such as the WWL ‘Girls-Only’ coaching clinic and WWL school skill sessions provided opportunities for approximately 1100 girls to participate in football activities delivered by WWL team members. Throughout 2012.13 Northern NSW Football increased opportunities for athletes with disabilities to engage with football through

Community Football continued

both regular competition and gala day events. The first ‘Football for All’ club in Northern NSW was established in Maitland by husband and wife team Alex Threadgate and Alex Malam which provides children with disabilities the opportunity to participate in ongoing football competitions in the Hunter Valley. 2012.13 also saw the expansion of the Special Olympics Gala Day program across NNSW. Over 350 primary school aged students participated in the program of Small-Sided Football matches and training activities due to the close relationship fostered between NNSWF and Special Olympics NSW. A highlight of the year was the chance for 32 young players from Maitland Football for All, Hunter Simba FC and Broadmeadow Magic Girls U6 team to participate in the Manchester United Soccer Schools gala day held at Wanderers Oval, Broadmeadow, prior to the Manchester United v A-League All-Stars match. The gala day not only gave the players an opportunity to participate in some high quality coaching delivered by Manchester United staff, but also meet ‘Big Red’ the Manchester United mascot, club legends; Dennis Irwin and Bryan Robson, and participate in photo opportunities with the English Premier League Premiership trophy. Club Development Officer Gary Fisher continued his excellent work on the National Club Accreditation Scheme (NCAS). NNSWF now has 20 Level 1 Accredited clubs, with Alstonville FC the first club to complete their Level 2 accreditation. Northern NSW Football’s Volunteer recognition program implemented by Member Zones acknowledged five zone based volunteers, with the following club representatives being named as their respective Zone Volunteer of the Year;

Alex Threadgate and Alexandra Malam from Maitland Football For All, Hunter Valley Football were also acknowledged at the NNSWF Annual Awards Night as the 2013 Northern NSW Football Volunteers of the Year. NNSWF 2011.12 Volunteer of the Year John ‘Chips’ Wainwright of Tinonee FC was also awarded the 2012 FFA Volunteer of the Year at the annual Australian Football Awards held in Sydney in November 2012. The success of the NNSWF Club Development Officer role has resulted in the NNSWF Board of Directors approving the appointment of an additional fulltime Club Development Officer in 2014. I look forward to this appointment and the additional support it will provide to community clubs. I also congratulate Gary Fisher who has been promoted to the role of Senior Club Development Officer. This promotion will see Gary’s role extended to assist and support NPL and premier competition clubs beginning in October 2013. 2012.13 saw the introduction of the first joint State Indigenous Football Festival held in partnership between NNSWF and Football NSW. This festival was conducted throughout September providing 120 indigenous footballers aged between 11 and 13 the opportunity to participate in a 6-a-side tournament. NNSWF was represented by metropolitan and regional teams in each of the boys and girls competitions. Special congratulations should be given to the metropolitan boys side which won the boys tournament and to the regional girls team that finished runners up.

In addition to this festival, over 630 indigenous primary school students were engaged in participation activities and events. Northern NSW Football was also represented at the annual FIFA Indigenous Grassroots course held this year in Melbourne by Gary McGinnis of North Coast Football and John Brenton of Football Mid North Coast. 23 participants completed the annual Community Coach Education Presenters and Assessors Course which provides accreditation to deliver community coach education courses and assists to increase the number and quality of coaches within community clubs across Northern NSW. 663 coaches attended a Grassroots Coaching Certificate course in 2012.13 while 260 coaches received full accreditation at Junior, Youth, Senior or Junior Goalkeeping level. 151 female coaches gained accreditation at Grassroots, Junior or Youth level through Female Only Coach Education courses. Cassandra Wright completed her AFC C Licence after being awarded an Elite Female Coaching Scholarship. NNSWF also launched the first series of ‘Skill of the Week’ in 2012.13. These short session plan videos were produced for community coaches to access free of charge to assist in providing quality, fun sessions for their teams. These videos proved extremely popular, posting over 3800 views on YouTube. Non-traditional football participation grew to 6646 players, an increase of 25.9%. This growth can be attributed to the popularity

of programs such as Summer 6’s and Quick Kicks, as well as an increase in the number of players playing in club based special competitions and special tournaments. A review into the appropriateness and effectiveness of the structure, administration and development of officiating throughout NNSWF was endorsed by the NNSWF Board of Directors in 2012. Following a thorough review process, 21 recommendations were made to and accepted by the NNSWF Board, including the appointment of a fulltime NNSWF Referee Development Coordinator. I would like to thank Alan Nisbet, Luke Davies, Neil Jones, Brad Carlin, Steve Griffith, Russell Henry and Steve Mackney who were appointed to the Review Steering Committee for their dedication and commitment throughout the review. A number of initiatives in 2012.13 assisted in providing additional opportunities to elite referees across Northern NSW to reach the highest level. The first match official exchange program was implemented in partnership with Football NSW which allowed NNSWF match officials to challenge themselves by officiating on NSW National Premier League matches. 55 NBN State League referees were provided with tickets and transport to the Socceroos v Iraq World Cup qualifying match as part of Referee Recognition Week. Referee Recognition Week continued to grow this season with the introduction of ‘Silent Saturday’ aimed at Small-Sided Football clubs delivering the message that “the game is for the players, so let them play”. It was also a highlight that three NNSWF match officials were appointed to the first round of the Hyundai A-League match between Wellington and Brisbane. I look forward to another huge football season in 2014 during the lead up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the 2015 AFC Asian Cup in Australia.

Football Operations continued to focus throughout 2012.13 on providing members with administrative assistance and access to programs and services which aimed to further develop the delivery of the game at all echelons throughout Northern NSW. In response to the ever increasing workload and expectations placed on the High Performance Department, Football Operations was charged with the additional responsibility of managing and administering all operational aspects of the new Emerging Jets Program and NNSWF’s participation in the National Youth Championships in 2012.13. The NBN State League had one of its most successful seasons with several clubs in each of the grades vying for Final Series places and six different clubs represented on Grand Final Day. A Grand Final Day crowd of over 5,200 reflected the continuing support for the League with high interest and expectations surrounding the implementation of the National Premier Leagues in 2014.

The introduction of the NPL in 2014 will see all participating clubs enter teams in 1st Grade, 22s, 19s, 17s, 15s, 14s, and 13s providing for the first time a structured junior development pathway for competing clubs. The 2014 NPL Premiers will progress to the NPL Final Series against the Premiers from other Member Federations. Adamstown Rosebud was the successful team in the NEWFM 1st Division taking out Premiership and Grand Final honours and winning promotion to the inaugural NPL in 2014. As was the case in 2012, the Herald Women’s Premier League was dominated during the season by Lake Macquarie City FC who took out the Premiership. They were however, once again outplayed in the Grand Final by Adamstown Rosebud JFC who triumphed in a 4-3 thriller. The expansion of the Herald Women’s Premier League to include 18s was deemed a success by participating clubs providing a pathway for their juniors to participate in the WPL.

Football Operations continued

The 2013 State Cup produced an increase in nominations with 80 entries from clubs throughout Northern NSW. For the first time since the Cup’s inception, a regional team triumphed over their more illustrious Metropolitan counterparts when Urunga Raiders FC (North Coast Football) defeated Edgeworth FC (NBN State League) 9 – 8 on penalties in the Final at Coffs Harbour International Stadium. NNSWF once again hosted extremely successful FFA Boys and Girls National Youth Championships in Coffs Harbour and will complete the last year of a three year tenure in 2014. NNSWF continues to fund and manage the Newcastle Jets team’s participation in the Westfield W-League with season 2013.14 focussing on the development and promotion of local players and 75% of the team coming from our region.

Summer 6’s continues to expand with 15 centres across Northern NSW conducting the summer version of our game and over 2000 players participating. Zone Managers continue to work closely with the Executive team focusing on the continued establishment of standard administration procedures and initiatives throughout Northern NSW. The rollout of National Online Registration is now complete with all players and match officials registering online in 2013. Procedures will be implemented to encourage all players and officials to self-register in 2014. Meetings were held to review the Sporting Pulse Competition Management System and ensure that the system is utilised to its full capacity and members have a comprehensive understanding of the system’s capabilities.

First Touch Football Supplies continues to grow and expand surpassing its sales target of $700,000 in 2012.13. The appointment of new suppliers and resources should ensure another successful year ahead for First Touch in 2014 with an expanded range of products and service for our members. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Football Operations team for their continued dedication and commitment throughout the year and also the Zone Managers who continue to support and assist NNSWF with the implementation of administration procedures and initiatives designed to better serve our myriad of stakeholders in years to come.

The introduction of the NPL in 2014 will see all participating clubs enter teams in 1st Grade, 22s, 19s, 17s, 15s, 14s, and 13s providing for the first time a structured junior development pathway for competing clubs.

Marketing and Communications Key Performance Area: Marketing and Communications Sponsor: Marketing and Communications Manager, David Cromarty

Strategic Goal: A professional structure that embraces quality marketing of Northern NSW Football across the key areas of sponsorship, media, advertising, promotions and public relations that results in recognition as a vibrant partner of football in Australia.

Key Success Measure

Outcome

Key Performance Indicators

Outcome

Generate football editorial which reaches a total cumulative audience of 22 million people in print media throughout Northern NSW in 2012.13

A result of 20 million was achieved which whilst reflecting strong coverage, particularly in regional areas, also started to reflect a decline and a growing trend away from ‘traditional’ media such as press, towards online news sources.

Increase the total number of registered players throughout Northern NSW to 53,000 in 2013

52,221

Marketing activity during the period saw the continuation of an exciting partnership with the Newcastle Permanent Building Society as Northern NSW Football’s partner in presenting Junior Football. Now in its second year, the sponsorship represents the largest junior football sponsorship in Northern NSW Football history.

The ever increasing web and social media demands during 2012.13 have been well coordinated by Web Content Coordinator, David Slattery who continues to work closely with Member Zones and platform provider Sporting Pulse on delivering responsive, timely and accurate communications to all stakeholders.

Through the Newcastle Permanent’s continuing support, every entry level player who registered in season 2013 received a free ball and shinpads, an initiative that helped contribute to an increase of 3.03% in entry level registrations during the period – the second consecutive year for entry level player growth.

Social media continues to provide a unique member experience, reflected in significant growth in Facebook ‘likes’, now approaching 5000 and significant viewing of You Tube vision with over 33,000 views and over 88,000 minutes of vision watched during the period.

Marketing Coordinator, Larissa Adamczyk once again played an integral role in effectively servicing this groundbreaking partnership across our Member Zones in Northern NSW, working with the Newcastle Permanent, its many regional branches and establishing working relationships with branch staff in each location to effectively leverage the support across junior football in each centre. Northern NSW Football’s state wide website platform continues to provide real benefits to members, stakeholders and sponsors alike and is now complemented by a growing social media presence across multiple platforms.

Media activity during the period reached a cumulative audience of 20 million. Whilst reflecting strong coverage, particularly in regional areas, the result also started to reflect a decline and a growing trend away from ‘traditional’ media such as press, towards online news sources. With this in mind, a revision of media monitoring activity is proposed for 2014 that allows online news sources to be monitored, resulting in a more accurate representation of actual exposure and readership on individual news items across Northern NSW. The Marketing team was also proud to have contributed to the successful funding application for the Speers Point facility, through the provision of an ongoing and concerted media and public relations campaign to promote the facilities significance to communities and the game in Northern NSW.

Strategic Goal: Implementation of performance driven business practices complying with relevant legislation and standards aligned with our strategic goals.

Key Success Measure

Outcome

Minimise financial deficit relative to budget as adopted by NNSWF’s Board of Directors in September 2012

Achieved a net surplus for the 2013 year of $184k.

2013 has been another positive year having finished with a net surplus of $184,627.

Some of the highlights for 2013 include the following:

In September 2012, the Board of Directors were presented with a net deficit budget for the first time following their commitment to fund the Westfield W-League team from Members Equity and not from current year operations, as well as now being faced with having to pay commercial rent after selling our former office at Hexham. Management has worked hard to ensure this projected deficit was minimised and succeeded in returning a net surplus without compromising our service delivery.

– Player registrations remained steady with continued growth in entry level participation and summer football; – Our investment revenue remained strong despite falling interest rates; and – Our merchandise sales reached a new record of $723k. Included within the net surplus of $184k is $120k of funding received from the Department of Regional Australia to assist with the feasibility study that was completed for the Speers Point Park facility project. This funding enabled Northern NSW Football to prepare a Report on Environmental Factors (or REF) which outlines the various considerations necessary for Lake Macquarie City Council to grant approval for construction without the need to use Members Equity during this process.

A summary of the 2012.13 Key Performance Indicators are set out below:

Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash at bank, and in hand, and short term deposits with an original maturity of 3 months or less. For the purpose of cashflow, cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and cash equivalents as defined above net of any outstanding bank overdrafts. Employee Benefits Provision is made for the Company’s liability for employee entitlements arising from services rendered by employees to balance date. Employee entitlements expected to be settled within one year together with entitlements arising from salaries and wages, and annual leave which will be settled after one year have been brought to account at their nominal rate. Other employee entitlements payable later than one year have been measured at the present value of their estimated future cash outflows to be made for those entitlements, using appropriate estimation techniques. Trade Debtors All receivables are categorised under the requirements of AASB 139: Financial Instruments – Recognition and Measurement and are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently at amortised cost. All trade and other receivables are current. Trade receivables are generally due within 30 days from the date of recognition. An allowance for doubtful debts is based on a review of outstanding balances at balance date and is accounted for in a separate account. Indicators of impairment include where there is objective evidence of significant financial difficulties, debtor bankruptcy, financial reorganisation or default in payment (more than 60 days overdue). Bad debts which have previously been provided for are eliminated against the allowance for doubtful debts. In all cases bad debts have been written off as an expense directly in the income statement. Trade and other payables Liabilities are recognised for amounts to be paid in the future for goods and services received whether or not billed to the company. Trade accounts payable are normally settled within 30 days. Revenue Recognition Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised upon delivery of goods to the customers. Interest revenue is recognised on a proportional basis taking into account the interest rates applicable to financial assets. Revenue from rendering of service is recognised upon delivery of the service to the customers. The profit or loss on disposal of the asset is brought to account at the date an unconditional contract of sale is signed. Goods and Services Tax Revenues, expenses, and assets are recognised net of the amount of goods and services tax (GST) except where the amount of GST incurred is not recoverable from, or payable to, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). In these circumstances the GST is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of an asset or as part of an item of expense. Receivables and payables are stated with the amount of GST recoverable from or payable to the ATO and is included as a current asset or current liability in the Balance Sheet. Cashflows are included in the Statement of Cashflows on a gross basis. The GST components of cashflows arising from investing and financing activities which are recoverable from, or payable to, the ATO are classified as operating cashflows. Financial Instruments Recognition and Derecognition Regular way purchases and sales of financial liabilities are recognised on trade date – the date on which the company commits to purchase or sell the financial assets or financial liabilities. Financial assets are derecognised when the rights to receive cash flows from the financial assets have expired or have been transferred and the company has transferred substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership. Comparatives Where necessary comparatives have been adjusted to conform with current year disclosures.

Note 22 – Additional Information

The Company has lodged an application with Lake Macquarie City Council to construct an elite facility at Speers Point Park which, if successful, would be functional by December 2014. At the date of this report, no commitments had been made or agreements entered into in relation to the facility, however an amount of $203,886 has been expended to 30 September 2013 with this amount being capitalised in the Statement of Financial Position. The following is a summary of the project should it go ahead in accordance with the preliminary plans:– The facility will include two full-sized FIFA standard synthetic all-weather fields, 10 fivea-side courts, a multi-purpose administration building and a sealed car park with 120 carparking spaces. – It is expected that the overall project cost will be $11.3million. The Company anticipates receiving $7.3million from the Hunter Infrastructure and Investment funds and will commit up to $4million from its cash reserves. – The Company has applied for a 40 year lease of the land at Speers Point Park from Lake Macquarie City Council which would require it to carry out the construction of the facility as discussed above. The initial rent payable under the draft lease agreement is $5,000 per year for the first two years and then the greater of $10,000 per year or 1% of the gross operational turnover. – During the period of construction, Lake Macquarie City Council will require a bank guarantee of $250k which will be released once the project reaches completion.
