PETER SCHOLES SHINES AT STATE 7s CARNIVAL

 

Congratulations to up and coming referee Peter Scholes who was appointed to the NSW Under 13, 15 and 17 State 7s Carnival held in Forster recently.  Peter impressed both on and off the field, representing our Association with distinction.

 

As a result of his performances, Pete has subsequently been invited to referee and two further state carnival before the end of the year.

Our Association's future is certainly in good hands with young referees like Pete coming through the ranks.

OUR ASSOCIATION'S NEWEST LIFE MEMBER

Vic Whiteley has been a long term active member of our Association.

 

He first joined our Association in the early 1980s. Apart from a brief stint where Vic worked (and refereed) overseas, he has held continuous membership of our Association since that time.

 

In addition to his membership, Vic has been a wonderful contributor to our Association as an active referee, referee coach and member of the executive.

 

As an active referee, Vic was held in very high regard and not only reached the pinnacle within our Association of been appointed to games up to and including First Grade Grand Finals, but he ‘flew the flag’ for our Association by being appointed to games at both NSW Country and NSW level as well.

 

As a referee coach, Vic was one of the first referee coaches in Australia to be invited to complete the then new accreditation level of Level 3 Referee Coach. In doing this, Vic was a regular coach at Shute Shield level and was also involved in the early days of coaching Super Rugby games. Vic has been a committed and dedicated referee coach both on the Central Coast and within NSW Country where he has forged the development of many a referee over a career of approximately 20 years.

 

Vic has held many positions on the executive committee of the Central Coast Rugby Union Referees Association. Through the 1980s and 1990s, Vic served as Secretary of our Association and in recent years has supported the Association through positions as both President and Vice President. He has at all times done his best to promote refereeing and our Association while all the while having the best interest and welfare of the general membership at the forefront of his thinking and actions.

 

Vic Whiteley is one of the true gentlemen of Rugby with a passion for refereeing and Central Coast referees in particular. He has served our Association, NSW Country, NSW and Australian Rugby with distinction for many years. Vic truly deserves the honour of being inducted as a Life member of the Central Coast Rugby Union Referees Association.
