2023 Senior Football Best and Fairest Results

Standout defender, Ed Hayne came away with Katunga’s Keath Wills Best and Fairest Medal Friday night along with the Best in Finals award. Being super dependable off the half back flank, Ed consistently negated his opponent and then turned defence into attack with his dashing runs. His abilitly to win the ball in the air against quality opponents even when he looked out of position was pivotal throughout the season and finals campaign. Stepping up as captain throughout the finals series Ed really showed off his leadership skills capping off a brilliant year.

Cam Bishop had another consistent season finishing Runners Up. Cam was a ball winning machine yet again, winning the footy at the contest and driving it forward to give our forwards first opportunity. His work rate was second to none all year, not only in the front half but working back to help out his defenders out, making Cam such a valuable member of the side and a headache for opposition teams.

Third placed Spencer Small was awarded the Duncan Hendy Most Determined. Giving 100 percent effort at every contest, whether it in his tackling or swooping on a contested ball. Spencer hates being beaten and thrives off winning the contested footy. His determination and willingness to get things rolling in our direction makes him a huge asset to have back, especially in the big games.

Young gun Viv Russo was presented the Jake O’Hara Best Team Man trophy, having done whatever was needed through the year. From attacking and running across the back half or locking down on some of the competitions best forwards. Returning from an ACL injury and at still eligible to play 17/Unders, Viv had an unbelievable year for such a young inexperienced player. Nothing phases him, showing poise and a cool calm head beyond his years. The future looks massive for this young man and we can’t wait to see how good he can be.

Kevin van den Goor, gave his full commitment from day one of pre-season and received the Coach’s trophy. He was thrown into several positions throughout the year and pushed through injuries at times when we needed him out there. Equally as good in the air as on the ground and reliable week in week out, Kev was a major key in the swans run to a prelim final.

Unsurprisingly, Daniel Campbell was the Swans Leading Goalkicker.

Corey Dunn walked away with the John Cossens Reserves Best and Fairest with his super consistent year up forward and through the middle, finishing second in the PDFNL goal kicking and third in the PDFNL Best and Fairest. His strong hands and long kicking provided the team with a reliable forward option all season, and was a well-deserved winner.

Former Reserves Best and Fairest winner, Harry Hill had another solid season in the midfield finishing Runners up. His relentless and attack on the ball offers plenty of drive forward, and he is often the barometer of the team playing well.

Another former B&F winner, Josh Tetley received the Most Determined. Josh so often wills himself to the contest or a chase down tackle, and somehow extracts the ball out of a pack to get it moving. Another great year and doesn’t look like slowing down!

Best Team Man went to Steve Few. Rarely beaten in the backline and provides strong leadership and guidance from the last line of defence. Steve is an unassuming player prepared to get in and get a job done while also building up his teammates around him

In his first year of football, Kieran Hasler-Oates was most improved. After taking some time to find his preferred position, he then became a really solid and dependable backman. His strong body filled a gap in the side and his ability really grew as the season went on.

In his first year out of thirds, Kynan Bethell’s dedication to training and improving showed through the season as his confidence grew and was awarded the Coach’s trophy.
