Max Meyer Golden Boot U12 – U18

With just a handful of rounds remaining of the 2020 season the race for the Max Meyer Golden Boot award is hotting up.

Isabella Bonaccorso from the Girls 14B currently leads the way with 20 from Andrew Milton (15) and Emily Hicks (15)

We also take this opportunity to look back at last years inaugural winner Jesse Dei Agnoli of the then U14B, scoring 37 goals in the 19 games he played and also a hat trick when he played up a year for the U15B’s. 

Jesse’s goals helped the U14B team to the Divisional title and Grand Final victory.

The Max Meyer Award is an annual award that is presented to the highest goal scorer each season for the U12 to U18 mixed and girls age groups.

The Sustainable Sports Program is an initiative that received funding by the Federal Government in support of Northbridge FC. This followed the initiatives of Linda Curtis and Liz Courtney two soccer mum’s who had a dream to create a grass roots environmental movement for youth through sport, and have organised for the pilot program to be undertaken at Northbridge FC. The Club would like to acknowledge their vision and efforts and the support of Federal Member for North Sydney, Trent Zimmerman and Willoughby Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney for their combined support and enthusiasm for this project.
