Manly United senior men’s presentation night
MANLY United’s three men’s squads collectively toasted their 2018 season last Friday night in the clubhouse at Cromer Park.
Departing veteran Dylan Macallister took home first grade’s coveted Player’s Player trophy as well as the Director’s Award.
The 36-year-old was humbled by his double accolade.
“It was definitely an unexpected honour,” Macallister said.
“Player’s Player is special as it is voted by your peers and their acceptance and praise is something I value dearly.
“To also receive the appreciation from the board (of directors) for my contribution to the club on and off the field really emphasises that I’m on the right path.
“It motivates me further to continue developing and keep pushing the club in the right direction.”
Consistent right back Kieren Paull was a popular choice for First Grade Player of the Year.
In the 20s, it was the Finn Ashton show, after the dynamic youngster claimed the Player’s Player gong as well as Player of the Year.
The 18s had a promising campaign in good signs for the future.
Finishing in the top five of their competition and progressing to the second week of finals, their main awards went to Calem Nieuwenhof (Player’s Player) and Levi Kaye (Player of the Year).
