2013 Volunteer of Year Award
Congratulations to David Martin from Griffith Junior Rugby Union has been awarded the ACT & SNSWRU Volunteer of the Year Award at the 2013 Macdougall Medal and Presentation Night.
Since the inception of the club in 2001-2002 Dave has filled all roles and single handily ran the club for 7-8, putting in countless hours many of which are behind the scene. Dave has coached all grades, and is still coaching representative teams including school sides and has taken kids to all ends of the state and even to Tasmania and South Australia, in which he is willing help with paying for food and accommodation.
Dave is always willing to lend a hand and constantly helps out with players that are from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing them with the best opportunity to take part in Rugby Union.
David also continues to liaison with university and southern inland rugby union and assisting with sourcing grants for Southern Inland and Griffith Junior Rugby Union with his input is always being very valuable.
Dave efforts have been countless and he is described as one in million with all the contribution he has done for the club being extraordinary. If you were to ask any Rugby Union club in Southern Inland they all know Dave and how much he has and will continue to put in.
