Each year GUFC presents two important awards:

  • Giant of the Year – outstanding services by a volunteer committee person
  • President’s Award – outstanding services by a volunteer

As with most local sports clubs, GUFC is run entirely by volunteers – committee, coaches, managers and many other helpers. With nearly 1600 players and 138 teams, running GUFC is a big job. It starts in January with registration, grading and teams commencing training – and ends in November/December with the annual general meeting and planning for the next season. It simply can’t be understated – our volunteers ensure we all get to play football. Without them, we wouldn’t have a club. Every effort is appreciated – we thank you all.


Congratulations Paul Worthy our extremely hard working and dedicated vice president, who received the 2018 President’s Award.

Congratulations also to Melisa Opperman who received the 2018 Giant of the Year Award.  The Giant of the Year is a peer award and this season Mel received a large percentage of the committee votes for her excellent work as the club’s sponsorship officer.

Thank you Paul and Mel for all that you do for the club and fellow committee members.
