Golden boot for Sarah Skinner

SARAH Skinner has claimed the Golden Boot with 27 goals in North Coast Football's Women's Premier League for 2015.

The 16-year-old Maclean Bobcats superstar consistently found the back of the net this season to finish two ahead of Boambee's Kylie McDonald (25) as the leading goal scorer.

Skinner scored 64% of her team's total of 42 goals.

Northern Storm's Jamie Kennedy claimed the award in the men's competition. He scored 31 goals including a record of 10 in a single match against Woolgoolga in round 19. Boambee's Brady Parker (24) and Naomichi Matsuda (23) filled the minor places.

Both Kennedy and Skinner will be presented with their awards at the annual North Coast Football Presentation Dinner at Coffs Harbour's C.ex Club on Saturday, August 22. Cost is $40 per head and includes a full buffet-style dinner followed by presentation of club of the year, player of the year, referee of the year, minor premierships for all senior grades and more.

Guest speaker is Melbourne journalist Tony Wilson, who has travelled the world watching the Socceroos including three World Cups. To book your ticket, phone 6651 2159 or email admin@northcoastfootball.com.au.
