Run­away win­ners

Mas­sive mar­gins in Ea­gles’ vot­ing

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - SPORT - WADE GLEESON

THE New Nor­folk District Foot­ball Club held its best and fairest count at the clu­b­rooms on Fri­day night, with big win­ning mar­gins for all four teams.

There was a run­away win in the Les Hep­per Medal count, with Mark Horne tak­ing out the award on 58 votes, a big mar­gin of 24 votes clear of run­ner up in Ben Lovell on 34.

Horne has had a ter­rific sea­son and was named run­ner-up in the South­ern Foot­ball League’s Wil­liam Leitch Medal.

In the se­nior women’s team count — for the side’s first sea­son — there was an even big­ger mar­gin with win­ner Tayh­lar Tan­gata polling a stag­ger­ing 80 votes to take out the award.

Tan­gata was a whop­ping 51 votes clear of run­ner-up Olivia Smith on 29.

In the Reserves, it was Luke Brown­ing who had a stel­lar sea­son, polling 69 votes for the Roy­don Howard Medal, a huge 41 votes clear of run­nerup Tom Bligh with 28. Brown­ing is a vet­eran of the club who al­ways gives his all.

In the Colts it was Cody Mor­gan who did very well, polling 56 votes in an ex­cel­lent sea­son.

Mor­gan won by the mar­gin of 18 votes ahead of Caleb Trif­fett, who was run­ner-up on 38.

The night was well at­tended and with the ad­di­tion of the women’s team, it cer­tainly was a more vo­cal crowd.

Hats of to the board and vol­un­teers for you ef­forts with the club, it takes spe­cial peo­ple to run a club and you guys are ex­actly that.

Well done to all play­ers, coaches and of­fi­cials. A pre­mier­ship may have eluded the club this sea­son, but I’m sure the Ea­gles will be back up at the top again in no time.
