CRFNC presentation night

By Jarryd Barca

Corowa Rutherglen Football Netball Club celebrated its 2018 season with a successful presentation night held on Friday, September 7. 

 Club president Graham Hosier congratulated all award winners and volunteers, coaches and supporters for their tireless efforts this year. 

More than 180 people attended the night. 

“It was a really good night, it was fantastic to see the amount of people that were there,” he told The Free Press. 

Footy captain Hayden Filliponi took out the Jim Sandral Medal as the seniors’ best and fairest player for season 2018, while Sophie Hanrahan took top honours in the A Grade netball vote count. 

“Congratulations to all the award winners on the night, particularly Hayden, it’s fantastic to see a local boy win the medal. He thoroughly deserves the win and has stuck by the club. It was a close count too which shows you how good all these kids are,” Mr Hosier said. 

“Even Sophie Hanrahan winning the A Grade, it shows you how good a player she is and it was a fantastic effort by her.”

It wasn’t only the players who were recognised on the night, headlined by the award given to Ron Robinson as the ‘Club person of the Year’.

“Ron’s been fantastic, making sure the player points are all in order among everything else he does. He’s been a great football manager for the past four or five years,” Mr Hosier said.
