Without Val we would not have a successful football club, not only is she the secretary which is a very busy role, she also fills in wherever needed.. We lost our president this year to cancer which was tough on everyone but especially Val, as they had run the club together for a long time. Val stepped up after this to ensure the club survived and the kids got to play the game they love. Val is at every home game either doing ground manager, canteen, first aid or even registering kids to play. . she is also at our field nearly every training night doing what needs doing. She loves the game and loves seeing the kids smiling as they enjoy playing footy, Without Valarie Uilou, Canley Vale Kookas would not be the great Football club it is. We are all so thankful for all she does and also all the other committee members.
