Bligh Park FC’s Phillip Giles Honoured


It was a memorable moment that Bligh Park FC President Phillip Giles will remember for the rest of his life after the proud football man was recently honoured receiving the 2023 ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award at this year’s Hawkesbury Australia Day ceremony held at Windsor.

Phillip made a significant contribution to the Hawkesbury as President of Bligh Park FC over the past 12 years where he supported the football club through Covid and floods.

Phillip is known for being passionate about offering the youth of the Hawkesbury every chance to play football. He offered the Bligh Park facilities and grounds to all Hawkesbury clubs when other clubs lost their fields due to flooding.

When the 44-year-old is not working, he is down at the grounds all weekend talking to the kids and members to find out what can be improved. He also ensures that the facilities are clean and professional. Phillip is a highly respected member of the local football community.

Football NSW would like to also congratulate Phillip on his services to the game and this well-deserved accolade.
