Roosters boy wins award

YOUNG Nambucca Heads player Hayden Humphries has plenty of reasons to smile this week after he was named as this week's winner of the AAMI/CRL Player and Club of the Week competition.

The win was announced on Sunday on 2GB during the Ray Hadley Continuous Call program and the Roosters player has been awarded a $250 sports voucher for himself and a $1000 grant for his club.

When asked why Hayden was selected as this week's winner, AAMI NSW executive manager Andrew Gibson was quick to praise the 15-year-old, saying that he was always willing to help the club, both on and off the field.

“Last season Hayden refereed the Group 2 JRL under-10s Grand Final,” he said.

Roosters' club secretary Pat Nichols said Hayden's on-field skills and his outstanding contribution to the club were the reasons for his nomination.

“He is always willing to help on game days, whether it is refereeing or any other duties asked of him,” she said, adding she was thrilled to see the valuable club member receiving some recognition for his efforts and that this was obviously a boost for the Nambucca Heads JRLFC.

“The club continually works hard to provide the opportunity for young people to play rugby league within the town,” she said.

“We will use the AAMI grant to purchase either a new set of jerseys or put it towards more training gear.”
