A LARGE crowd attended the New Norfolk Junior Football Club's best and fairest count at the New Norfolk District Football Clubrooms earlier this month.  With three of the four counts having six or fewer votes separating the winners, the night had plenty of nerves and anticipation.

In the Under 16s it was a very close count from start to finish with Zac Triffett pipping runner-up Ryan Banks-Smith by three votes. Both players had done well in previous years with Zac winning the Under 14s in 2013, while Ryan was runner up in the Under 14s last year.

In the Under 14s it was also three votes that separated winner Jamie Rainbird with 38 votes from Jayden Wilton on 35 votes. For the Under 13s award, Jye Bearman held off Dylan Browning by just six votes. Dylan was also runner up in the Under 12s last season.

Under 12s best and fairest winner Zach Holdsworth, left, with
runner-up Billie Green, and Under 13s winner Jye Bearman and
runner-up Dylan Browning.
For the Under 12s, Zach Holdsworth had a good run polling 52 votes to win the best and fairest, while Billie Green polled 31 votes to be runner up.

At the end of the trophy presentations, life membership was awarded to Peter Archer. Peter, who was unable to attend, served as a coach and committee member during the 1990s and also held the position of public officer for 10 years. Life Members in attendance were Cathy Adams, David Banks and Chris Lovell. Congratulations also go to NNJFC committee member Vanessa Britten won the STJFL Club Volunteer Award.

Finally, well done to the Under 16s who defeated Lindisfarne in the STJFL preliminary final and played off against North Hobart in the grand final, which was won by North Hobart.
