ED­DIE Tikoft was named Curtin Univer­sity Foot­ball Club's State League Player of the Year at the clubs awards on Satur­day evening.

CURTIN Univer­sity Foot­ball Club named its stand­out play­ers for 2015 at a sold out awards night on Satur­day evening .

The big win­ners were Ni­cole Mcvicar, who was named Curtin’s Fe­male State League Player of the Year, and Ed­die Tikoft, who won the same award for the men’s side. Up-and-com­ing young­ster Jim Wal­lace was recog­nised for an out­stand­ing sea­son, be­ing named un­der 18 player of the year.

Head coach Liam Pol­lock was full of praise for Mcvicar, a new sign­ing this year, who plays as a box-to-box mid­fielder.

On Wal­lace’s sea­son, Un­der-18s coach and Curtin’s tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor was full of praise for a “young leader with so much po­ten­tial”.

“The team started the sea­son brightly and out­per­formed last year’s sea­son but more im­por­tantly, con­tin­ued to de­velop into out­stand­ing young men” he said.

Club pres­i­dent Camp­bell Bal­lan­tyne said Tikoft’s year was con­sis­tant.

Bal­lan­tyne praised the club’s vol­un­teer work­force and urged the side on for the next sea­son.

Ed­die Tikoft had an out­stand­ing year and was in­flu­en­tial in key re­sults through­out the sea­son.
