LEAH McNish from the Dalyston Football and Netball Club has won a 2015 GippSport Most Disciplined Player Scholarship.
Leah was nominated by the Dalyston FNC for her contribution on and off the field.
According to the club’s Youth Girls Football Coach Ella Angarane, she is a great role model and mentor to younger players in the club.
“Leah involves herself in club life and shows great skill in supporting her peers,” Angarane said.
“She has set a great example to her team mates by always following instructions and encouraging her team mates.
“She always tries her hardest and never complains when being rotated onto the bench.”
GippSport Executive Officer Barry Switzer presented Leah with a scholarship to the value of $400 at an assembly at the Dudley Campus of Wonthaggi Secondary College.
The Dalyston FNC also received a cheque for $100 for providing the nomination.
GippSport Program Coordinator Gene Parini assisted with this presentation.
“GippSport is very keen to promote young people like Leah who not only participate in sport, but also make a contribution off the field of play,” Parini said.
“Her parents, club and school are justifiably proud of her.
“It was great that the Dalyston FNC found the time to nominate her.”
The scholarship is sponsored by GippSport, Victoria Police and McDonald’s.
Clubs are encouraged to join the free program and are encouraged to provide nominations for this scholarship on an annual basis.
