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.

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.
