AT the recent Southern Football League grand final day Brighton had both its under 18s and Reserves teams facing off against teams from Claremont in what we knew was going to be some tough football.
The under 18s got off to a nervous start, despite some great play by Jakob Best, Mithcell Jakubiszyn, Jeremy Trinder, Ryan Jones and Jordan Percey, they went down 16.6.102 – 6.9.45.Our Reserves team led at every break but got overrun in the final quarter to lose 9.10.64 – 5.4.34. Joe Smith, Anthony Dillon, Tim Boucher, Chris Blackaby, Wade Booth and Adam Whitford were stand out players on the day.
The annual William Leitch medal for the SFL Best and Fairest was held last month with Brighton Football Club recipients receiving five awards. Jordan Percy placed fith with 15 votes for the Lipscombe Medal for the Under 18s. Adam Whitford won the George Watt medal for the Reserves with 31 votes. Cal Daly placed second with 24 votes for the William Leitch medal for the Seniors.
Chris Goodluck was presented with a leadership award and Sam Coetzee was presented with a volunteer award.
In the Club’s best and fairest count the following were winners and runners up for season 2016:
