2019 Presentation Night
All the Award Winners

On Saturday 5 October 2019, the club held the 2019 Presentation Night in front a massive crowd in the spectacular surroundings of the Bells Ballroom in South Melbourne.

It was great to see players from all 3 teams glamming it up for the big event!

Along with the current playing group and their partners, there were many past players and Life Members in attendance including President Nic Pavlou, Jason Nicholls, Ian Hammet, James Demetrie and Patrick Arnold, as well as Club Legends Peter Dakin and Stephen Mason.

It was a great way to relax, unwind, reflect and celebrate the season and look towards 2020 with great expectation.

President Nic Pavlou thanked the large team of committee and tireless workers who helped get three teams on the park each week and also thanked the partners, friends and families for their support of our players and asked everyone to rise again to challenge on the field in 2020.

Matt McDonald and his wife Alana were there to present the prestigious Don McDonald Best Clubman Award on behalf Matt’s late father.
