EUREKA FC has kicked a major goal by being named Team of the Year (non-professional) at the 2012 Australian Football Awards.

Seventeen players were flown down to Sydney to pick up their award at Australian football's biggest awards last week.

Football Far North Coast general manager Steve Mackney said the 6th Division men's team exemplified "how sport should be played".

"The announcement of Eureka's Men's 6th Division team as the Football Federation Australia Team of the Year is a fantastic recognition for the team and our local area," he said.

"The team epitomises spirit, enjoyment and community and I am delighted that the FFA has determined Eureka to be a most worthy winner this year."

Club president James Mayson said George Elliot's quote "It's never too late to be what you could have been" best summarised the senior men's achievement.

"We hope this will help draw attention to the club and attract kids - big and little - to come play next season," he said.
