In a glittering Monday night ceremony at Doltone House, the Sydney footy community gathered for the Phelan Medal night; when the best and fairest players in the various divisions were awarded.
In a three-way tie for top spot, Ned Campbell was awarded the Phelan Medal; as the best and fairest player in Mens Premier Division; sharing the honours with Pennant Hills’ Matt Maguire and Manly’s Kale Gabila. Campbell has had a memorable season as captain of our Seniors team.
Unlucky not to win the award last year, when Campbell had polled the most votes but was ineligible after having been suspended; Campbell again led the count for most of the evening. It was a recognition of an outstanding season; a year in which Campbell has been named as captain of the AFL Sydney Team of the Year.
The good news kept coming for the Bombers, with Campbell Saddington also honoured with the McFarlane Medal as Best & Fairest in Platinum Reserves.
Congratulations to both Ned and Campbell on outstanding seasons. Both will be in Grand Final action this weekend, looking to add a premiership medal to their individual awards.
