Massive margins in Eagles’ voting
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.
