Congratulations to Adam Pedron for winning the Div 1B Best & Fairest for the third year in a row.  It’s a great achievement to win one, but three is just amazing.  He either needs to stop being so friendly with the referees, or give the A’s a crack!

Well done also to Daniel Ong who finished joint 4th in Div 1B on 14 pts.  While in Div 4, congrats to Rob Alberton and Saber Dini who finished joint 2nd (11pts) and joint 4th (10pts) respectively.

Well done to Saber Dini and Stuart Smith who recently racked up half tonnes against Woodside and Mercedes respectively. That makes nine players hitting 50s this year.

Props also to Dan Aikin who will notch his 300th match (since 2003) next week .  If we could add all of his appearances B.W. (Before Website) he’s probably closer to 400.  To go alongside his longevity, Dan has also won a couple of league championships (2000-01), a cup (2012) and the A’s Best Player (2004) . Massive respect Face.

If you want to get on the first page of all time appearances, you need to start playing twice a week.  That’s exactly what Lewis “Teen Wolf” Whittenbury has been doing for the last season and a half and is almost there.  After a massive 29 matches in 2015, Lewis has already played 21 this year.  He has also now joined the revered 100 club in his 5th season at the club.

Congrats!

Now he just needs a player profile!

Congratulations to Chris ‘Crab’ Gayen, spiritual leader of the Whites ‘Drinking XI’, for reaching the 200 game milestone last week. Quite an achievement for a man who’d already played at 11 other clubs and had officially retired, before being coaxed back into football in 2004. Since then he’s managed to win  a couple of B’s Best & Fairest awards, be part of a Cup winning team & even coached for a season. Well done old man.

Congrats to Collegiate Cup winner, former committee member and current C’s coach Kirsten Staff, who – despite the ignominy of having a girl’s name – managed to rack up 100 matches last cup round.

Someone write him a profile!
