Six/seven years: Jaxon Weymouth (best and fairest), Hudson Lashbrook (top goal scorer), Sage Sloan (encouragement award).
Eight/nine years: Brock Marks (best and fairest), Cooper Devalentin (top goal scorer), Chloe Mallamace (encouragement award).
Special mention to Bryton Tuckett from Perth Glory in the six/seven years, who finished just behind Hudson Lashbrook in the goal-scoring tally.
Again, thanks to president Harrison for overseeing the competition and for completing all of the general duties involved in running the junior fixture.
Thanks also to Lamont for the work that goes into registrations.
Catherine Gray for running the canteen each week, Megan West for all publicity work, Alistair Fattore for putting the five years group through their paces each week, senior men's and women's players for their help in the canteen, field setup, coaching and refereeing.
Also to senior men's reserve grade coach Rhys Jones, who was there every Thursday night and every early Saturday morning to help out with anything required.
To Scott Munro for his time, care and patience put into running this program for the players. Without Munro it wouldn't be possible to achieve such a successful initiative.
