CAPPING off a stellar 2019, where he was awarded the prestigious Bill Turner Award for outstanding service to football in Northern NSW, Mike Parsons has been returned unopposed as chairman of Football Mid North Coast.
Mr Parsons' enormous contribution to football in the community was recognised by the awarding of life membership to Football Mid North Coast, presented at the recent annual general meeting.
Joining Mr Parsons on the executive are David Lee as vice chairman and Michael Wallace as treasurer.
Meanwhile, Northern NSW Football is taking nominations from clubs for the FFA Cup competition.
The FFA Cup provides football teams across the country the chance to face-off against elite Hyundai A-League clubs in the national knockout tournament.
NNSWF's preliminary rounds will be split into two conferences, with Football Mid North Coast in the northern conference with Football Far North Coast, North Coast Football and Northern Inland Football.
Participating clubs in the 2020 FFA Cup northern conference will be placed into an open draw, There is a chance teams from within the same zone may be drawn against each other during rounds one to five.
"An open draw is required to avoid capping the number of participating clubs from each zone,'' a spokesman explained.
