Renton caps off fine sea­son with Wolves’ high­est hon­our

Pilbara News - - Sport - Peter de Krui­jff

This year’s De Grey Medal­list Tim Renton has also won his club’s best and fairest league player award.

Wick­ham Wolves held their pre­sen­ta­tion night ear­lier this month.

Midfielder Renton was one of the linch­pins in the Wolves’ resur­gent sea­son, which saw their re­turn to fi­nals footy in the Agrade.

Mitch Barnes-But­ler was the run­ner-up in the best and fairest count.

Deon Alec was named the most con­sis­tent per­former and Brook Ball most valu­able.

Ray­mond Tay­lor was awarded the Kim Ball Me­mo­rial Award while Cameron Cross’s ef­forts af­ter the reg­u­lar rounds earned him the fi­nals player award.

Key for­ward Beau Alec was also recog­nised for his dis­play off the boot this year as the North Pil­bara Football League’s lead­ing goal kicker.

Last year, the Wolves trav­elled to Port Hed­land to face a heav­ily favoured Rovers squad, pulling off the away-from-home up­set and grab­bing the flag.

While they did not look as dan­ger­ous this year, the Wolves were a strong side in the re­serves, es­pe­cially at home.

Adam Delint re­ceived the re­serves best and fairest hon­ours, with Billy But­ler tak­ing home the run­ner-up ti­tle.

But­ler was also named a life mem­ber on the night, along­side Me­gan Kay and Sue Lott.

Most con­sis­tent was split be­tween Kyle Ea­ton and Ethan Wynne, and most promis­ing went to young Kendall Tay­lor, 16, who ear­lier this month was the sur­prise win­ner of the Mathieson Medal for the re­serves com­pe­ti­tion’s best player.

Steven Say­lor won the best fi­nals player award for his bruis­ing play in the two re­serves matches against Kar­ratha Kats and South Hed­land Swans.

Ay­den Say­lor re­ceived the coach’s award and Chris O’Sul­li­van the most im­proved.
