Capricorn Coast Football Club President Kerry Gray has been announced as the Queensland Community Female Administrator of the Year as part of Football Federation Australia (FFA)’s rebel Female Football Awards.
Aimed at promoting and celebrating the continued growth of women’s football, the Female Football Awards coincide with Female Football Week, showcasing the important role players, coaches, referees, volunteers and administrators play in growing the game.
Danella Hewetson said Gray has been instrumental in encouraging female participation in her role at Capricorn Coast FC.
“Kerry has put the club at the forefront of her life and continues to encourage the committee and community to participate in initiatives to encourage female participation in this great sport,” Hewetson said.
Capricorn Coast FC has seen a significant increase in women’s participation numbers across all age groups under Gray’s leadership.
“Kerry, through her vibrant personality, has engaged an enthusiastic band of volunteers who are committed and dedicated to providing a friendly and nurturing environment which has seen unprecedented growth in player numbers,” Football Queensland Infrastructure and Government Relations consultant David O’Leary said.
Through her leadership and guidance, Gray has demonstrated that she will do everything in her power to ensure the club and local community receive nothing but the best.
Gray showcased her commitment to the development of women’s football by working to secure a $200,000 grant from the Queensland Government for Capricorn Coast Football Club as part of the Female Facilities Program.
These funds allowed the club to perform upgrades to their change rooms and parents’ rooms and incorporate unisex compliant facilities, creating a space where everyone felt comfortable.
FQ would like to congratulate Kerry Gray on her achievement as Queensland Community Female Administrator of the Year.
