Wanneroo City Council approved the plaque at Gumblossom Reserve sports amenities building during a confidential session at its June 24 meeting.
The plaque will recognise Steve Hallam’s ‘outstanding contribution’ to Joondalup City Junior Soccer Club (now Quinns Football Club) and the Wanneroo community.
According to the club’s website, Mr Hallam, who died last year, founded the club with Howard Crump, Steve Reely and Paul Hollins in 1993.
He was the president from 1994 to 1996 then again in 2002 and 2003, as well as the vice president in 1997 and 2004 and the treasurer in 1998, before moving to Wanneroo City Soccer Club.
Councillors unanimously agreed to install the plaque.
