Luke wins League award
Woy Woy Junior Rugby League Football Club player Luke Moore has won a Country Rugby League award for his sporting achievements.
Luke, 10, has been with the club for five years and reached 100 games in 2008 while playing in the under nine's competition.
Luke is the youngest player at the club to reach 100 games, and in the same year he also scored 100 tries and was awarded the under 9s Best and Fairest player.
Club secretary Mr Russel Downey said Luke was a one-in-a-million kid whose love of the game sees him play every Saturday and volunteer whenever he can to help the club out.
"Recently Luke had a head clash with a teammate during a game and needed stitches as a result," Mr Downey said.
"In a testament to his love of the game, his mum said the only thing he asked the doctor was whether he could train and play footy the next weekend."
Luke has won a $250 sports voucher for himself and $1000 for Woy Woy Junior Rugby League Football Club.
The award from Country Rugby League was aimed at encouraging rural communities, parents, coaches and fans to get behind their local club and players by nominating them for a grant.
Mr Downey said that Woy Woy was a community-orientated club with a strong commitment to the children of Woy Woy and local areas.
"This year our club has donated books about rugby league to local schools, held a Junior Rugby League Development Day to encourage children into our sport and assisted the CRL with school gala days," Mr Downey said.
