Neale Moody has been The Basin Junior Football Club Junior President for the past two years and a committee member for countless years before that. As one of the Club’s larger than life characters, Nealo is known for his laconic style, dry sense of humour, a ‘can do’ attitude and his trusty set of blue overalls (which we suspect he also sleeps in). As the President, he has a quality and style that exudes a genuine love for the Club, its players, helpers and families which serves as an inspiration to all of those around him. As well being involved in the day to day running of the Club, Nealo is a ‘big picture’ thinker and is always looking for the next big idea or opportunity. Importantly, his ideas are not just pipe dreams, with Nealo spending countless hours behind the scenes talking to people face to face or over the phone (technology is not his strong point) to turn these ideas into reality. A recent example of these efforts resulted in The Basin Football Club being given the opportunity to host the 2016 EFL Junior Girls finals! Combined with his trusty van (The Basin tool box), Nealo will always be the first to arrive and the last to leave with nothing being too much trouble, whether it be setting up for match day, helping out behind the bar or giving the girls in the Canteen one of his famous bear hugs to let them know how much they are appreciated!
