Wonderful campaign for Hallam
IT has only taken South Hobart’s Kasper Hallam two full seasons to be voted NPL Tasmania’s best and fairest player.
Tasmania’s best footballers, coaches and referees of the NPL Tasmania and Women’s Super League were recognised over the weekend at the Football Tasmania 2021 awards dinner.
Hallam also claimed the NPL Tasmania Best and Fairest while Ken Morton was awarded NPL Tasmania Coach of the Year.
Hallam’s second full season in Tasmania’s top flight saw him score 16 goals while playing a key role in South Hobart’s third-place finish.
“I think every year that goes by, our team is going to look more and more like the strongest team in the league,” he said. “It is such an honour to win those individual awards, but I think you would trade them for the [NPL Tasmania] title.”
In the Women’s Super League, Kingborough Lions’ Laura Davis shared the Best and Fairest with Launceston United’s Jessica Robinson, alongside her joint Golden Boot award. Zebras coach Ronnie Bolton was awarded Women’s Super League Coach of the Year, while the top refereeing honours went to Claire Green and Brenton Kopra.
