Jamie England was a run-away winner at Cobram Victory’s presentation night.
He won the club’s senior men’s best-and-fairest award ahead of first-year player Tom Langman, closely followed by Adam Gatcum and Craig Carley.
England capped off a stellar season, having already won the league best-and-fairest and having carried an injury throughout most of the second half of the year.
England also won the players’ player of the year award ahead of senior coach Craig Carley. Carley won a club record fourth straight golden boot award, having scored well over 100 goals in his past four seasons at the club.
The coaches’ award went to 17-year-old Kane Goldsworthy who was given his senior debut in round five and held on to his position for the whole season, becoming an important member of the senior side.
In the senior women it was a thrilling vote count with six players still in contention to win going into the last round of the season.
But it was Georgia Ouderman who polled six votes in the last round to come away as the winner, one vote in front of a fast-finishing Carissa Lissington who missed much of the early part of the season, closely followed by Walmsley, Diretto, Mathieson and Pye.
For Ouderman it was her third senior women’s best-and-fairest, having also won in 2007 and 2008.
The golden boot award went to first year player Rebecca Huggett and the coaches’ award went to Carly Paterson.
In the reserves it was coach Michael Startari who won the best-and-fairest in front of a fast-finishing Wayne Skippen.
Startari also won the golden boot to go with his league golden boot award, and the coaches’ award went to Mitch Franco.
