and Jacob Daley (Lyn Harris Award winner).

A PREMIERSHIP may have eluded the New Norfolk District Football Club this season but the quality displayed at last month’s best and fairest award night shows that the Eagles will be back up at the top of the league in no time.

Big winning margins were the order of the night in all four divisions. It was a runaway win for Mark Horne in the Les Hepper Medal, taking out the award on 58 votes, a big margin of 24 votes clear of runner[up in Ben Lovell. Horne had a terrific season, including being runner-up in the SFL William Leitch Medal.

Some of the senior women’s team trophy winners.

In the senior women’s team, which had its first season, it was an even bigger win with Tayhlar Tangata polling a staggering 80 votes to take out the award. Tangata was a whopping 51 votes clear of runner up Olivia Smith. Congratulations Tayhlar on being the women’s inaugural Best and Fairest winner.

In the Reserves, for the Roydon Howard Medal, it was Luke Browning who had a stellar season, polling 69 votes, a huge 41 votes clear of runner up Tom Bligh. Browning is a veteran of the club who always gives his all. He thoroughly deserved the medal. In the Colts, it was Cody Morgan who did very well polling 56 votes in a excellent season. Morgan won by the margin of 18 votes ahead of Caleb Triffett.

The night was well attended and with the addition of the women’s team, it certainly was a more vocal crowd. Well done girls. Hats of to the board and volunteers for their efforts with the club and well done to all players, coaches and officials.
