Renton caps off fine season with Wolves’ highest honour
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.
The ladies from the Wickham Wolves dressed in their finest.
