Somerset’s Todd Hingston won the George Dale Medal as the winner of the 2017 Veto Northern Championship best-and-fairest player.

Hingston has now won this award five times.

He played only half the season but polled 23 votes from his 10 games.

Daniel Syson of Devonport was second with 17 votes, while Aiden Rigby of Launceston United was third and also took out the Golden Boot Award.

In the Women's Northern Championship, Emily Heazlewood won the Women's Best and Fairest with a massive 30 votes from Emma Langley on 25.

Heazlewood attended a mini-Matilda's camp earlier in the season.

The Under-18 award went to Christian Byard from Burnie, ahead of Fahim Moradi of Launceston United, who had been neck-and-neck with him throughout the count, along with Lukas Souter (Riverside), Yak Koryom (Launceston City) and Golden Boot winner Darlyton Echetama.

Northern Rangers’ Marshall Pooley won the Men's Northern Championship 1 best-and-fairest award, one point ahead of Joshua Duncan of Launceston City.

In other awards, the Men's Coach-of-the-Year was Kevin Considine for leading the Somerset Sharks to a 20-win season en route to the League title.

Rod Fulton was the Women's Coach-of-the-Year for leading Rangers to their breakthrough League triumph that ended the Ulverstone and Launceston City monopoly.

Nathan Brain was named both Referee of the Year and Young Referee of the year.

#34 Sometimes it's not about the money , I would say problems at Olympia greater than people know.

You may be right but the problem at Olympia would have to be massive for that to occur.
More likely someone stirring the pot.
To be honest I hope it happens so that the youngsters get a go to show if the new set up is working.
If not its back to the drawing board for George and the club.

I think you will find Georges cheque book has a bigger balance.
