Jack Bull wins third McGregor Medal

Men’s 1st XVIII Captain Jack Bull stormed home to win his third McGregor medal on Thursday evening at the Club’s annual Presentation Night.

Approximately 150 people were at the Cardinal Pavilion at Scotch to celebrate the achievements of the club’s seven teams in season 2018, and how fitting it was that Leigh McGregor and his family were in attendance to present the award named in his family’s honour.

Club legend Rick ‘Cowboy’ Western was honoured on the night for his long standing service to the club. This season, Rick oversaw the team management of our Men’s Under 19 program; no small feat as we fielded three teams most week. Cowboy just gets on with things in his quiet, understated way and he really is what the club is all about.

Joan De Vond was recognized for her tireless efforts overseeing our registrations and team managing the Men’s 3rd XVIII when she was awarded the Bill Pearson Most Valuable Person award. In all respects Joan is a MVP; she is hard working and reliable and absolutely committed to the welfare of everyone associated with the club. She has a huge heart and is a most fitting recipient of this award. Barbara Holder added to the night by presenting Joan with a top shelf bottle of bubbles!

The first awards presented on the night were the awards for the Old Scotch Stars. Lily Goss capped an outstanding year by claiming the inaugural best and fairest award, polling 69 votes to pip Lucy Morley on 67 votes.

Jack Bull’s Hong Kong Bucks extravaganza threw a small spanner in the works for the organisers, but the Men’s 1st XVIII were next presented, allowing Jack time to be rushed off to the airport to make his flight with father Steve carrying his bags. This award capped another outstanding year at the club for Jack. I believe he is one of the greatest players to have represented the club and the way he conducts himself on and off the field is a great exemplar for all. Nick Jamieson was a most worthy runner up, particularly when you consider how much football he missed with his injured knee.

The Men’s 2nd and 3rd XVIII Best and Fairest awards were won by Charlie Long and Jack Otter respectively.

Peter Georgiadis won the Men’s Under 19 3rd XVIII best and fairest award and Luke Nicholls won the Men’s Under 19 2nd XVIII best and fairest award after having outstanding seasons. It was also wonderful to see Austin Harding recognised for his three year commitment to our men’s Under 19 program with the 2018 best and fairest award; a terrific achievement in such a strong field from the skipper.
