Young Moneymore Coach is Translink Ulster GAA Young Volunteer of the Month

April 23rd, 2018

A coach from Moneymore GAC has been awarded the Translink Ulster GAA Young Volunteer of the Month award for March 2018.

The award is presented each month to one young volunteer whose efforts best demonstrate the volunteering ethos and community spirit of the GAA.

Emmett Crozier (23), who is the lead coach of the minor team, was nominated by his club in recognition of his commitment and the time he dedicates to training, motivating and developing the club’s under-age squad.

Presenting Emmett with his award, Tony McDaid, Service Delivery Manager, Translink said:

The Young Volunteer of the Month Award is designed to celebrate the important contribution young members of the GAA make to their clubs and communities. On behalf of Translink, I’d like to congratulate Emmett on winning the accolade. As someone who volunteers as a coach, a fundraiser and a committee member, he is a very deserving winner and a wonderful role model to others in his community.”

Ulster GAA President Michael Hasson added:

Emmett’s attitude, leadership and ability in motivating others is outstanding. He is a Player, Volunteer and a Committee Member which is remarkable at such a young age. I congratulate Emmett and all the young nominees this month who are doing tremendous work in their local GAA clubs.”
