Dressed for medal count

The West Australian - - NEWS - Shan­non Hamp­ton

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.”
