Junior best and fairest down to the wire

By Holly Tregenza

IT appears the future of Kyabram football is in safe hands. 

The Ky junior group celebrated their end-of-season awards night recently after coming runner-up in the first year of the U14's GCJFL finals series. 

The best and fairest count went right down to the wire, with youngster Noah O'Donnell taking the title with points scooped from the last point card of the last game.

Steven George came in a close second just four votes behind O'Donnell on 112. 

More than 80 kids have been a part of the junior Kyabram sides this season, and each was presented with a medal and team photo, as well as the ultimate footy winnings — chips and a hot dog. 

Most Consistent went to Reve Torney, Most Determined went to Will Campbell, Most Improved went to Cohen Sceney and the Coaches Award was given to Bailey Lloyd. 

President Justin Barnett and secretary Nicole Griffiths said it was a great season that saw the development of some stellar talent. 

Mr Barnett thanked the myriad sponsors that have made the season possible.

"A huge thank you to all the local businesses and sponsors who have got on board," he said. 

They're now looking to step down from their roles after many seasons involved with the junior program. 

"I'd like to encourage others to get involved at an executive level," Ms Griffiths said. 

If you're interested, head along to the AGM on October 16 at 7pm at the Wilf Cox complex.
