Seven new Life Members in Tigerland

The Mayne Tigers recognised seven individuals last night at the Annual Awards Night held at the Victoria Park Golf Course.

Caleb Brown, Corey Massingham, Luke Faulkner, Luke Ferguson and Tom Ditchburn were there to receive their awards while Guy Gardner and Ian Hawke were out of town but were all very thrilled to be recognised by the club they have served for so many years.

Luke Ferguson stole the show last night with his moving speech in response to this award giving credit to his older brother Mitch and his very supportive parents as wonderful role models. He also credited the club and the many individuals involved as playing a dominant role in his personal development.

Ian Hawke has been recognised for his life long support of the Mayne Tigers and Queensland Football.
