Mother, son medal win­ners

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

One of the spe­cial sto­ries to come out of Satur­day’s Pi­cola League grand fi­nal day was Tocumwal A grade player Jacq Davis and her son Hay­den both win­ning a premier­ship medal.

Hay­den was the first of the two to salute, play­ing as a part of the Tocumwal fourths foot­ball premier­ship side.

Jacq pre­pared for her grand fi­nal in the af­ter­noon by watch­ing Hay­den play in the morn­ing.

She said it was great for both to win on the same day.

‘‘I’ve won a few in my time so it was nice to share the mo­ment with Hay­den,’’ she said.

‘‘I was more emo­tional when he won his medal, prob­a­bly be­cause when it’s the first premier­ship it’s re­ally spe­cial.

‘‘Hay­den played re­ally well, he kicked a goal and played his part.

‘‘He has re­ally en­joyed his time play­ing under Bob Bourke; he has so much re­spect for him.

‘‘I per­son­ally could have played bet­ter. I’m prob­a­bly com­ing to the end of my A grade ca­reer, so if that was my last then it was ex­tra spe­cial to win it on the same day as Hay­den.’’
