When it comes to junior rugby league in Armidale, there isn't much Jimmy Tanner hasn't done.
You name a role and he's done it - coach, groundsman, canteen, parent, player and more.
Now his efforts have been formally recognised with the Greater Northern Region of NSW Rugby League naming him as their Volunteer of the Year.
The Greater Northern area covers the Group 19, Group 21 and Group 4 areas.
Tanner's days at the club began in 1947, playing alongside his brother.
His children and grandchildren have also turned out for Armidale.
Although he no longer has family playing for the club, Tanner has kept coming back to help out.
Of the 41 years he has volunteered at the club, Tanner has coached junior teams to 20 grand finals, including one in 2019, and he has never lost any of those deciders.
He's also coached some elite players, both locally and at a representative level, who have gone on to play at an NRL level.
"You have got to give the kids a chance to play and something to play on," he said.
"Coaching them is one of the greatest things you can ever do.
"I have got no ties, but if I can't come and do this, it is pretty ordinary if you are sitting at home doing nothing.
"They have said to me 'why do you do it if you get nothing out of it?'
Tanner replied: "If you walk in the dressing shed and see the smile on their face, that is all you want."
Tanner also credited his late wife, Rosemary, for supporting his passion.
"Losing her, it was a bit tough but she supported me. Everything I do here, I think of her," he said.
Tanner was nominated for the award by current Armidale junior Rams secretary Wendy Petersen.
Of the win, Tanner didn't even know his name had been put forward. He was modest about the work he does behind the scenes.
"I didn't think I had done anything," he said.
"She [Petersen] didn't tell me I was nominated, she told me I had won.
"Everyone else was ringing me up telling me I had won but I hadn't got a bit of paper or letter or anything to say I won. I thought it was a hoax."
Petersen labelled Tanner as "the heart and soul" of the club.
"Nothing is too much hassle. He does everything and anything. He is fabulous. Every club needs a Jimmy around," she said.
