Coach of the Year - Mahir (Max) Kavazovic
Max did an outstanding job with our Under 12 Div 2 team this year. He faced lots of obstacles. The team did not have enough players early in the season and fell to the bottom of the ladder. But they always played their personal best, with good spirit, and with encouragement and direction from their coach. The boys learnt a lot - life skills and soccer skills, and with the addition of some extra players, they made it to the Grand Final. This was a nail-biting game to the very end with extra time and a penalty shoot-out, which, unfortunately, Norths lost. But a great result for the year after a difficult start, and full credit to Max for getting the most out of his team.
