Dressed for medal count
WA football will bring a touch of glamour to Optus Stadium tonight when players and their partners turn out in their best for the Sandover Medal count.
Subiaco captain Kyal Horsley is a red-hot favourite to take out the annual best-and-fairest award for the WA Football League.
The 31-year-old’s partner, Daglish beauty Amy Gardiner, will join him at WA football’s night of nights for a second time.
“It’s a great way to recognise the players for their talents and the perfect excuse for the girls to get dressed up,” the 22-year-old said. “It’s definitely something we look forward to.”
Ms Gardiner will wear an elegant white gown by Abyss by Abby. “Of course I’m hoping he (Horsley) wins because I see the sacrifices he makes during the year, but there’s a lot of talented players who I’m sure work equally as hard,” she said.
Horsley played down suggestions he had the coveted award in the bag. “I think we have so many outstanding footballers at the club and we will be sharing the votes,” he said. “So I doubt I’ll win, but it’s obviously flattering to be tipped as a winner.”
