Ambassador more than just a pretty face
DALBY Devils ambassador Taylor Anderton is more than just a pretty face on game day - she's not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get the work done.
It's that go-get-'em attitude that won Taylor kudos with the judges, who awarded her the runner-up TJRL Ambassador for 2019 at the annual ball in Gatton last weekend.
"It was such an honour to receive runner-up, it really felt like I did the club proud and represented them in the best way I possibly could,” she said.
"It's actually pretty exciting, especially at the ball, I got to show people that I care about the club and I do know about the club.
"I'm not just there to look pretty in a way, I was there to actually show that I support them.”
Taylor has been the Devils' ambassador since the start of the year, helping out on game days wherever she is needed and doing everything from selling merchandise and manning the gate to keeping time.
"It's been really exciting. I've been doing a lot for the club on game day and fundraising a lot of money and helping out where it's needed and just meeting a lot of the players too,” she said.
"It's just a chance to give back to the club and show that I support them not only being a spectator, show that I actually want to help out.”
Taylor also plays for the Devils U17 girls' team, with a love of league stretching back as far as she can remember.
"I've always loved football, I've been a big fan of it and when the opportunity came to play, I jumped at it,” she said.
Dalby Devils president Tim Hart said he was pleased to see the hard work Taylor had put in pay off in the form of the award.
"Nothing has ever been too hard for Taylor, she's always willing to give us a hand on game days,” Mr Hart said.
"It's exciting for her after 12 months of volunteering and helping out the club.
"It's a good recognition for the work she's done and the role she's taken on.”
