Player of the Month

Samuel - Player of the Month July 2007


Under 7

I would like to nominate Sam for his great sportsmanship. Although dissapointed that we have not been winning any games this year, Sam’s enthusiasm has not been dampened. Every week Sam tries his absolute hardest and is always on hand to congratulate the other team at the end of the game. At a recent game against Canterbury, their team only had six players while we had nine. The opposition coach asked if any of our players would be interested in filling in for the Canturbury side – to even things up. Sam volunteered to play the first half, and again tried his hardest, and played exceptionally well. The opposition coach commented that our team should be nominated for a “best and fairest” award, which was in no small part, a result of Sam volunteering to play for the opposition, and then playing his heart out for his “new team.” It was fitting that this game ended up being our first win of the season (in round 13)! Thanks Sam for reminding us what junior sport is all about.
