William "Darkie" McCall Award

History
The William 'Darkie' McCall Award was first presented in 1981 to Ian McCall. Ian's father William was an early pioneer of the Association. The award is presented annually at the Life Members’ & Presentation Evening to a member that has exceeded all responsibilities in their contribution to the Association during the previous twelve months. The award is voted on by the Executive via a secret ballot. Candidates are assessed for their attendance, improvement, demeanour and special acts.


2016 Recipient
The recipient for the 2016 season is Ian Parnaby. Affectionately known as “Parno”, his coaching credentials are first class. The impact that he has had on many individuals since his return to coaching within both the district and the wider rugby league community has been immeasurable. Ian continues to serve as a member of both Appointments Panels as well as providing assistance and advice around other operations of the Association. The ‘Darkie’ McCall Award is the Association’s most prestigious award and when Ian was named the winner for the first time, he was tickled pink to receive the award, which was very refreshing to see. Congratulations Ian on a fantastic achievement and thank you for your service to the Association.
