After the great success of last year’s second SFNL Hall of Fame night, it is with great pleasure that we announce that the League will be again hosting this memorable event.
Last year more than 130 people flocked to Woodlands Golf Club to witness six outstanding men and women join the 22 inaugural inductees into the SFNL Hall of Fame.
The 2016 inductees - Kinglsey Ellis, Mark Seymour, Margaret Torpy, Ken Shaw, Garry Matlock and David Luttrell - were honoured for their tremendous contributions to the SFNL and its member clubs in capacities as players, coaches, umpires, administrators and volunteers.
The SFNL are now calling for nominations for prospective inductees in 2017. Nominations are able to be made to the Hall of Fame sub-committee by SFNL board members, SFNL administration, SFNL member clubs and members of the public.
The criteria details that nominees must have demonstrated attributes including longevity, quality of performance, integrity, sportsmanship, good character and promoted the values of the SFNL or its forerunners, the FFL, ESCFA and SESFL.
Up to six inductees may be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017.
Inductees will be announced mid-year with a formal Hall of Fame event to follow shortly after.
