Craig Scott

Inclusion Advocate & South Australian Citizen of the Year 2021

Craig is a well-known driving force behind the Goodwood Saints Football Club and has been involved in the club for the past 44 years.  He is also a Senior Sergeant (First Class) with SAPOL, a TAFE SA tutor for the Advanced Diploma of Policing and is a volunteer with Operation Flinders. 

Craig has been President of the Goodwood Saints for the past six years. His vision and guidance have seen the development of a female football program that now boasts 7 teams and was instrumental in the setting up of the Inclusive football team back in 1992, which ensures players with integration difficulties – including mental and physical disabilities – are entirely integrated within the club. 

Craig’s strong advocacy for social justice issues is reflected by his work undertaken at the club and in the community. He’s implemented opportunities for the homeless from the Hutt Street Centre, and supported causes like the Red Shield Appeal, Breast Cancer and Mental Health education and support. His empowering nature and leadership abilities have enabled him to create a strong, healthy, and more resilient community. 

He has a Bachelor of Management (Policing) and has recently been invited onto the Office of Recreation and Sport ‘Women in Sports – Taskforce’. 

Craig was awarded the South Australia – Citizen of the Year Award 2021 and was also a finalist in the Australian of the Year – Local Hero 2021.
