Woodlock becomes our latest Volunteer of the Week

Coach Mike Woodlock could have qualified for a Volunteer of the Week award many times in his time serving the club — he’s been with the club more than 500 weeks.

That’s 10 years of football seasons, pre-season campaigns and post-season trips to Napier with our U-19 squads.

He’s decided it’s time to put his feet up, having handed over the first team coaching role to Paul Richardson.

Our club has tried to recognise Woodlock’s contribution in several ways.

After his last game, players lined up to form a human funnel, applauding him from the pitch.

The club has arranged for a race to be named after him at Cambridge Raceway, to be held on Thursday evening (May 17).

And now we’re delighted to announce he’s the fourth and latest recipient of our Onyx Cambridge-sponsored Volunteer of the Week award.

He receives a $50 voucher from our partner Onyx Cambridge.

Cambridge’s favourite eatery will help celebrate our deserving volunteers with a weekly prize of a $50 voucher to spend at Onyx Cambridge in Alpha St.

The award is a terrific way for us to celebrate those who keep our club running all year and to show them what Onyx Cambridge offers its customers.

In all, 20 volunteers will benefit during the season and we’re now seeking nominations for worthy recipients.
