Jonathon Ladic took out two of the senior awards at Tilford Zebras’ trophy night at the Australian Italian Club on Saturday evening.

Ladic had won the Vic Tuting Silver Medal the previous evening, so it was a marvellous weekend for the 26-year-old Tilford Zebras midfielder, who leaves for the Sunshine Coast on Monday to trial with the Sunshine Coast Fire.

He collected the best-and-fairest award, named in honour of the late Louis Genovesi, and also the players’ player-of-the-year award.
