NAB Young Footballer of the Year October nominee announcement

NAB Young Footballer of the Year October nominee

Football Federation Australia and NAB are proud
to announce the third nominee for the 2009/10 NAB Young Footballer of
the Year Award.

Tommy Oar of Brisbane Roar was voted as the most outstanding U/21 player for the month of October.

Determined by a panel of experts including Young Socceroos Head Coach Jan Versleijen, Socceroos Assistant Coach Graham Arnold and Fox
Sports FC host Andy Harper, the NAB Young Footballer of the Year
nominee for October, Tommy Oar, was judged on his performance over
rounds 9-12 of the Hyundai A-League 2009/10 competition.

Tommy Oar is the third nominated player to be announced and joins
Sydney FC’s Kofi Danning and Melbourne Victory’s Leigh Broxham, as well
as a further three players to be nominated over the coming months, to
qualify to be named the NAB Young Footballer of the Year at the
conclusion of the season.

The overall winner will receive a $10,000 personal investment
portfolio, a NAB Private Client Manager to assist with a range of
banking and financial services, and the inaugural NAB Young Footballer
of the Year Award.

To acknowledge the vital role junior football clubs play in the
development of today’s young stars as they strive to reach their
potential, NAB will also present a $3,000 equipment pack to Tommy Oar’s
nominated junior club, Palm Beach Soccer Club.


*Media are invited to attend a press conference with Tommy and his Brisbane Roar coach Ange Postecoglou to be held at 1.00pm on Wednesday, 28 October at Ballymore Stadium, Clyde Road, Herston.
