Annelise Rosnell named as a finalist in the 2023 NSW Sports Awards

Northern NSW Football is delighted to announce NNSWF General Manager NSW Football Legacy Annelise Rosnell as a finalist for the Administrator of the Year award for the 2023 NSW Sports Awards. 

The 2023 NSW Sports Awards, considered the highest sports honours in NSW, will culminate in the rebel NSW Champions of Sport Ceremony held at the International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour on Monday, November 20.

The ceremony will celebrate the achievements of NSW athletes, coaches, administrators, officials and organisations. 

The Administrator of the Year award recognises the outstanding contribution made by an administrator during 2023 by having a positive impact on an individual sport or industry as a whole. 

Rosnell’s nomination comes as a result of her outstanding contributions to the organisation and football within our region. Her role as NNSWF General Manager NSW Football Legacy is to help grow and develop the game through her stewardship of the 2023 NSW Legacy Program provided by the NSW Government to ensure a lasting legacy from the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup ᵀᴹ. The 2023 NSW Legacy Program supports football at all levels and aims to increase the participation and representation of women and girls throughout football.  

“It means a lot to be just nominated for the award so to be a finalist is amazing,” Rosnell said. 

“This is not something that is reflective of me as an individual but of everyone that puts effort into the Legacy Program. It’s nice to have that recognition and share that with the team.

“This nomination would not be possible without the hard work of my team. Without their hard work and passion, we could not have achieved what we have to help improve the football community of northern NSW. It’s inspiring to work with each of my team members.

“The past 18 months since we started as a team have been really good, having the Women’s World Cup and to be able to see the difference that we have been able to make within our community and then to have that recognised is really exciting.

“Thank you to the NSW Government for creating and rolling out the Legacy Plan.”

NNSWF CEO Peter Haynes was thrilled with the announcement. 

“Congratulations to Annelise on this remarkable achievement. To be named as a finalist in such a competitive category is a testament to her hard work, dedication and significant contributions to Northern NSW Football and our football community. We wish her all the very best on the 20th of November,” Haynes said.
