Last Sunday at the end of season pizza night, the Russell Lambert Best Club Person Award for 2017 was announced.
Ray Clark was the recipient of this award, as recognised by Club President Whitlam ‘Wag’ Malkoun:
"An individual who is selfless in many ways. Coach one year, and facing challenges, he stood aside to allow the team to develop further. Notwithstanding this, his participation didn’t stop as he became a regular weekly helper who simply couldn’t do enough to assist week in, week out. No task was too much, no task too hard. When asked to help, it was a simple "yes". A team Manager's dream in fact!"
"Then, tapping into his skill set, the committee asked Ray if he could assist with producing our new run-through milestone banners. The only question he had was how many and when do you need them by? Well, 3 banners later and all within successive weeks, Ray offered up his professional skills, gave up his time and effort and pulled them together for all our children to enjoy their milestone games. In doing so, he saved the club a substantial amount of money that we can divert into other development projects."
"A true gentleman, a real family man and now a certified clubman, what a deserving individual who exemplifies the true Bullant Spirit."
