Junior Awards 

On Monday the Bendigo Bank & Rural Bank Central Highlands FL Junior Best & Fairest Dinner was conducted with Vote counts for the Under 15 and Under 18 grades and leading goal kicker awards.

Under 18 Best & Fairest winner for 2018 is Bryce Coffey (Hepburn FNC) and Runner Up is Hayden Rodgers (Hepburn FNC). Bryce finished the season with 29 votes, which is a great effort considering he played a number of matches in the senior grade also.

Alistair Ferrier won the Under 18 goal kicking award with an excellent total of 113 goals for the season. He kicked 14 goals last weekend to bring up the century.

The Under 15 Best & Fairest Award was a run away victory for Lucas Blazko (Gordon) with a total of 44 votes, thirteen votes ahead of Nicholas Pantzidis (Buninyong). 

Connor Palmer (Carngham Linton) has won the Under 15 goal kicking award with a solid total of 60 goals.

Well done to all on a great season!
