PREMIERSHIPS AND BEST & FAIREST'S
The U18 and Reserve sides have capped very successful campaigns with the 2014 premiership flags! Richard Potter and Andy Lusi took home the respective medals for best on ground performances.
2014 was a disappointing year for the seniors missing out on finals but Moustafa Hammoud was rewarded for his outstanding play, winning the league best & fairest despite missing a few matches late in the year due to injury.
Braden Padmore followed up his win last year with a runner's up trophy in this years U18 beast & fairest. This is an amazing performance considering how many games he played in seniors and the time spent on the sidelines with a broken jaw!
