Dragons wrap up their sea­son

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Dou­glas United Foot­ball Club sea­son wrapped up on the weekend with the an­nual pre­sen­ta­tion night held at the Court House Ho­tel on Satur­day.

It was a good way to end a suc­cess­ful sea­son and to cel­e­brate the in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances and achieve­ments from the year.

Neil Bur­combe cleaned up in Di­vi­sion Two awards win­ning both Coaches Player of the Year and Play­ers Player of the Year while Lewis But­terss was sim­i­larly suc­cess­ful in the Re­serve grade win­ning Coaches Player and Play­ers Player of the Year. Danny Fer­rero claimed the Best and Fairest in the Re­serve Grade.

In the Pre­mier Grade Ian Marsh won the Best and Fairest award for the sec­ond year in a row while Jamie Gosling won the Coaches Player of the Year.

The pres­ti­gious Play­ers Player of the Year award was a very closely run thing with only a cou­ple of votes in it but Ol­lie Mof­fat came out on top to de­servedly claim the award.

The club awards saw Jamie Gosling win the Golden Boot award as top goal scorer, with Lewis But­terss win­ning the Most Im­proved Player award to com­plete a hat trick of awards on the night. Neil Bur­combe also made it a three-peat by pick­ing up the Club­man of the Year award for his ded­i­ca­tion and hard work through­out the year.

The fi­nal award of the night was the over­all Club Player of the Year which was shared by the two out­stand­ing play­ers of the sea­son, Jamie Gosling and Ol­lie Mof­fat.

The pre­vi­ous night saw the Zone Awards held in Cairns and once again the Club was very well rep­re­sented.

Chris­tian Mack­in­tosh won Goal­keeper of the Year while Jamie Gosling again won the Golden Boot and was also crowned the Pre­mier Mens Player of the Year which is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment and a de­served re­ward for an out­stand­ing sea­son. It is also worth not­ing the Yut­tana Tao­tong came within one point of win­ning the Re­serve Grade Player of the Year.

The Dou­glas United Foot­ball Club thanked sup­port­ers for their sup­port through­out the year in what has been ‘‘ another out­stand­ing sea­son’’.

Spe­cial thanks went to the Court House Ho­tel, Nathan Verri and Becky Nel­son and the team at Blood Orange for pro­vid­ing the ma­jor spon­sor­ship for the sea­son.

Fi­nally, Dou­glas United are re­launch­ing their sum­mer six aside com­pe­ti­tion start­ing tonight from 6 o’clock at Cas­sowary Park. The first two weeks will be so­cial evenings as a way to sort out some teams for com­pe­ti­tions start­ing on Oc­to­ber 17. Ei­ther get your­selves a team sorted and ready or come out on your own and the Dragons will find a team for you.
