Polling 26 votes, it was the second time the midfield ace has won the top award after having previously taken home the medal when playing for the Deni Rovers in 2009.
Adam Waasdorp is the only other player to win the Pearce medal at two different clubs (Waaia in 2002 and Yarroweyah in 2004).
It was a clean sweep in the vote count for Jerilderie, with star forward Aaron Purcell finishing three votes behind and Strathmerton duo Josh Evans and Shaun Downie in third and fourth.
A multiple premiership winner with the Deniliquin Rams in the Murray Football League, May has been in scintillating form all season.
He polled votes in 10 of his 16 games, including maximum votes on seven occasions.
Earlier this season he starred in the PDFL’s interleague clash against the Hume Football League, taking out his team’s best-on-ground medal.
The 2002 VCFL medal for best-on-ground in the Murray League grand final is gurther evidence of May’s ability to perform when it counts most.

Some of May’s other career highlights include winning the MFL thirds best and fairest in 1998, being named the MFL Rookie of the Year in 1999 (beating future Collingwood player Mark McGough) and playing for the Sydney Swans reserves.
