North Halifax Star 2016: Lifetime Achievement – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

WINNER: Malcolm Barrett (President, Halifax Sunday Football League)

For as long as most people can remember, Malcom Barrett has been at the very heart of the local football, as a referee and as volunteer on the management committee for the Halifax Sunday Football League.

The League is now in its 48th year and he was present at its very first meeting back in October 1968!

He became Chairman in 1996 and then in 2013 he became President; a role he still currently sits, keeping a watchful eye on the continued progress of the League.

Nearly 400 different teams and sets of players have enjoyed playing in the League in this time and this unsung hero, and North Halifax Star has been a pivotal figure in developing grassroots football in our local community.
