MORE than 300 peo­ple at­tended the Proser­pine Whit­sun­day Ju­nior Brah­mans an­nual pre­sen­ta­tions at the club’s home ground on Satur­day.

Nathan Bar­rett’s im­pres­sive sea­son was recog­nised with the young gun tak­ing out the pres­ti­gious ti­tle of player of the year, most con­sis­tent player tro­phy in the un­der-14s and mak­ing the North Queens­land Mar­lins rep­re­sen­ta­tive team.

Con­grat­u­la­tions also went to the six play­ers who were se­lected in the Mackay rep­re­sen­ta­tive team in­clud­ing Jack Kearns and Jeremy Kemp­ston from the un­der-13s, Nathan Bar­rett and Kai O’Donnell from the un­der-14s and Cadell Sch­len­ner and Jack­son Brooks from the un­der-15s.

Club pres­i­dent Kevin Young was thrilled with the suc­cess of all teams over the sea­son.

“Ev­ery player from the un­der-6s right through to the un­der-15s has im­proved im­mensely over the sea­son and they should all be proud of their achieve­ments in­di­vid­u­ally and as a team,” he said.

“We have a long list of ded­i­cated play­ers and we are look­ing for­ward to build­ing on their achieve­ments next year.”

Another ma­jor high­light of the day was the pre­sen­ta­tion of the ju­nior club per­son award to Sam Ber­nett.

“Sam plays for the un­der-15s and is al­ways will­ing to ref­eree matches, he helps out Dion Fer­raris in the un­der-9s and was a great as­set over the Paul Bow­man Car­ni­val weekend,” Young said.

Af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tions play­ers and their fam­i­lies made the most of the jump­ing cas­tle and other fun ac­tiv­i­ties around the sports ground.

Young said the club would be look­ing to field an un­der-16s team next year to help play­ers build a path­way into the se­nior Brah­mans un­der-18s side.

Mean­while, in se­nior rugby league news, the Proser­pine Rugby League Foot­ball Club’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing (AGM) will be held at the club­house on Les Stagg Oval on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 31 at 6pm. It is a great op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents who wish to have their say on the fu­ture of rugby league in the Whit­sun­days to stand up and be counted.
