Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Driveway - David Can­toni

SOPHIE Fletcher and Carlo Chiellini were named Curtin Univer­sity Soc­cer Club’s state league play­ers of the year at the club’s awards cer­e­mony.

Both play­ers had great sea­sons and it was just re­ward be­cause they shone on many oc­ca­sions.

Curtin Women’s head coach Liam Pol­lock said: “Sophie led the team from the front this year.

“She wore the cap­tain’s arm­band with pride and ded­i­ca­tion, be­ing one of our most im­por­tant play­ers on a con­sis­tent ba­sis.”

Fletcher was twice run­ner-up for the award.

Chiellini beat top goal scorer Rory Bin­nie and stal­wart Ed­die Tikoft for the men’s award in his sec­ond sea­son at the club.

Club pres­i­dent Camp­bell Bal­lan­tyne said Chiellini was out­stand­ing, par­tic­u­larly in the first half of the sea­son.

“He was at his best when we went on a streak of nine games un­beaten.”
