Football award winners announced
With season 2021 now in our rear-view mirror, we have now set our sights on moving to our new home, the Mildura Sporting Precinct. Before we can do so, we want to announce a range of end of season awards that have recently been handed out.
Due to COVID19 we have had to postpone our award ceremonies on multiple occasions, however over the past few weeks we have been able to host our teams for their respective awards. We would like to thank Dennis and the team down at Mildura Cruises for hosting our teams. Without these guys, we couldn’t have been able to facilitate these events given the indoor restrictions in Victoria.
So to the important part…Who won our awards such as the Ken Mansell Trophy, Johns Family Shield, Daniel Cleary Memorial Trophy, and Dod Judd Memorial Trophy?
Ken Mansell Trophy (Best & Fairest) – Tyler Curtis, took out his second Ken Mansell Trophy in season 2021. The number 1 big man in the game and our 2019 B&F winner, Tyler once again had an outstanding season in 2021 where he asserted his dominance in the ruck and was also an SFNL interleague representative.

The club would like to congratulate everyone who took out an award, all were thoroughly deserved. Our attention now turns to season 2022 where after 76 years, we will move homes from Sarah Oval to the Mildura Sporting Precinct. This facility will provide a central home for a number of sporting user groups in the district, with our club being the sole representative of the Sunraysia Football & Netball League. The facility aims to be a venue for major events including concerts and regional and national sporting events whilst also accommodating the need for community open space and passive leisure activities in the Mildura South area – one of our region’s main residential growth corridors.
