Tom Moylan Presidents Award for Doug Flanagan
Thank you to Matt and the club for this award. it has been a privilege and a pleasure to be a part of the RJFC family over the last two seasons.
I was a new parent to Auskick last year, getting involved as many parents do on the day and this year was delighted to join the committee.
Although initially only as a general member, I was happy to pitch in and help, before fully taking the reigns of Auskick Coordinator - it was an unexpected, but thankfully more staged, introduction to the enormous amount of work that goes on behind the scenes, to ensure that RJFC continues to deliver a fantastic environment of sport for our youngsters, from their first goal at Auskick to the accolades of state teams and beyond.
I am honoured to accept the award, but must call out that it is the sum of all the coaches, volunteers and parents support this year, that has ensured we could deliver such an amazing Auskick experience.
This is a wonderful club to be involved with, with a diverse and dedicated community of people that all go into making it a joy to be a part of - I look forward to continuing the journey with you all next year.

Congratulations Doug Flanagan
Doug Flanagan is the very worthy recipient of the Tom Moylan Presidents Award for 2021. Doug joined as a general committee member this year and from day one has immersed himself into the fabric of the club. Within a month of the season starting, and due to unforeseen circumstances, he stepped up to take on the extremely imporant role of Auskick Coordinator overseeing and providing support to our choaches, parent helpers, families and kids. Not daunted by the challenge, Doug's enthusiasm and passion for all things Auskick has grown immensely throughout the year.
Usually the first one to arrive on a Sunday morning to set up, many times with baby Lara strapped into the the baby carrier. Once the sessions start he is engrossed in esnuring everything goes to plan. He has driven and implemented game day iniatiaves, ensured coaches had helpers and most importantly kids having fun. His application so selfless he has hardly watched his own boy Connor play. His meticulous approach to planning and preparation was on show with our Auskick carnival this year achieveing a record number of team nominations and participation. The overwhelmingly positive feedback for the club and respect from his peers amongst the attending clubs form the district is something he and this club should be proud of.
Congratulations to you Doug, this award is throughly deserved recognition for your outstanding efforts this year, you epitomize everything a successful club needs in its leaders and volunteers and I look forward to seeing your continued development as an intergral part of the Rossmoyne JFC.
