Monika is the ‘Beating Heart’of Noarlunga United Soccer Club. In her current role as Chairman (which she has held for 3 years). she has devoted herself 7 days a week to the club. Monika opens the club every week day night from 5.30pm and stays until everyone goes home…sometimes that is late! Every Saturday and Sunday home games she opens up and is either working in the bar or the canteen. Functions are often held at the club and Monkia is the primary bar worker. A typical weekend could be arrive at club 8am Saturday and not leave until 2am Sunday when a function is being held…then back 6 hours later to open up for Juniors and Amateurs. Monika has devoted 10 years to Noarlunga. She coached for 2 years and then became the Junior Delegate…a role she still does today alongside being Chairman. She has been on the Noarlunga Committee for 6 years. During her 3 years as Chairman, our player participation has increased from 169 in 2014 to over 300 for 2016….an amazing achievement spearheaded by Monika.

To mention absolutely everything Monika has done for the club over the past few years would be an incredibly long list…but name it…shes probably done it!

Monika has an incredibly devoted family of husband Ian and 3 children and 1 grandchild who support her devotion to the club. She also manages to do all this whilst working 5 days a week for a local company.

‘Beating Heart’ of the club sums up Monika perfectly!
