Perpetual Trophies

Senior Grade Best & Fairest Award
"Michael Walker Medal"


Mick started with the club as a 16 year old in 1981, his first game being the second the club ever played. Over the years his name has become synonymous with the Penrith AFC.
He has played 268 games for the club and was at the helm as coach when the Rams won their first flag in 1989. Mick has captained the club, has coached both Senior and Reserve grades, has been an association representative player and was a playing member of the club's two senior premiership sides.
As an administrator, he was president of the club for four years and also chaired the Sydney Football Association. Mick was awarded Life Membership in 1992, received an Australian Sports Medal in 2000 and won the award which now bears his name in 1990.

Ramettes Best & Fairest Award
"Greg Corless Medal"

Greg had played soccer and both rugby codes in his younger days, before getting involved with Australian Rules Football when his son Tayt started with the then fledgling Emu Plains junior club in 2000. 
He made the move to the Rams in 2008, taking up the Youth Football Operations portfolio. He has become an integral part of the club's administration, culminating in his winning the Sydney AFL Volunteer of the Year award in 2014.
As the Sydney AFL Report from that year so aptly noted:
"Greg is the type of volunteer every club wishes they had. Nothing is too much trouble and the amount of work he puts into the club is astounding."
The Ramettes' Best & Fairest Award is named in his honour in recognition of his contribution to the club and to the establishment of the Ramettes team in 2012.

 Reserve Grade Best & Fairest Award
"Geoff Eldering Medal"


 Geoff started with the club in 1981 as a player who was virtually new to the game. From these beginnings he went on to build a formidable record with Penrith.
He is one of a handful of players to have played over 200 games for the Rams and was a playing member of the club's first two flag winning sides. He coached the second of those premierships, the side going through the season unbeaten in 1991. He played for, captained and coached association representative sides and won the Apted Medal in 1989 as the association Best and Fairest player.
He has coached Penrith sides in three different grades, has been club captain and twice was runner-up in the Senior Grade Best and Fairest.
Geoff was awarded Life Membership of Penrith in 1989.

Under 18 Grade Best & Fairest Award
"Alan Stewart Medal"

Alan was first involved with the Penrith Junior Football club in 1980, before turning his administrative ability to the new Rams senior club the following year.
Until 1992 he was one of several people who formed the backbone of the Penrith AFC. He did a remarkable amount of work to help with the challenge of running a senior football club in this area in the 80's - his roles at various stages included President, Secretary, Treasurer, Records Officer and Association Delegate.
Alan received Life Membership of the Rams in 1991 and the Australian Sports Medal in 2000.

Senior Grade Coach's Award
"Keith Claxton Coach's Award"

A footballer of considerable ability, Keith was playing at the highest level of Sydney football when he and others formed the Penrith club in 1981.
In Penrith's inaugural season, he captained the club and put in a tremendous amount of work at the administrative level.
Keith also won the McFarlane Medal as the Association Reserve Grade Best & Fairest player in each of Penrith's first two years.
After two seasons' absence, Keith returned to Penrith in 1985, playing his 50th game and assisting the club in consolidating its move to two senior grades.
Keith was awarded Life Membership of the club in 2011.

Reserve Grade Coach's Award

Frank Taylor

Frank had an extensive career in football prior to his RAAF posting to Sydney. He played for Western Suburbs before being appointed inaugural coach of Penrith in 1981.
