The night saw a number of dedicated volunteers, players and staff recognised for their efforts during the 2019 season.

The best & fairest counts saw fitting winners for both the U18 boys and girls squads, with Sam Flanders and Megan Fitzsimon taking home the top gongs respectively.

Five years of service awards were presented to Daniel Brand, Tamika Fasoli, David Hobbs, Peter Mongta and Rhett McClennan.

Scott McDougal and Kevin Curran were recognised for ten years of service to the club, while the best club person for 2019 was awarded to Danielle Purvis.

Among the other highlights was a fitting farewell and tribute for Talent Manager Peter Francis, who will retire at the end of October after 25 years with the club in a number of roles.

Former player and coach Leigh Brown was among those to lead the tributes to Peter, wife Robyn and children Scott, James & Prue, who were met with a standing ovation from the room.
