Nelson doesn't turn a blind eye to good performances


Craig Stockdale won Nelson Eastern Suburbs’ senior best-and-fairest award for the 2009 season.


Hettie Adams, 14, won the Fitzgerald Trophy, awarded to the women’s Division One best-and-fairest player.


Goalkeeper Nic De Carpentier won the club’s goalkeeper-of-the-year award and the ‘most improved’ honour at the awards presentation evening on Saturday, the day of his 18th birthday.


Defender-cum-midfielder Dean Melville took out the Division One reserves’ best-and-fairest award.


Rookie Jo Donald won the Division One women’s coach’s award and 15-year-old Kaitlyn Wright the ‘encouragement award’.


Andrew Gaskell was the best-and-fairest and the leading marksman in the under-19s, just pipping striker Jordan Brighella, while Simon Calvert was the ‘most improved’ player.


Luke Wallace was the leading scorer in the Division One side, while Richard Flood took this honour in the reserves.


Jo Donald won the ‘Best Club Person’ award and Ben ‘Spot’ Gibson was named the ‘Aaron Wojcik Personality Award’ winner.


Gibson demonstrated his versatility this season by playing in every senior position, including goalkeeper. He kept a clean sheet while in goal and he earned the award ‘for his incredibly positive manner, politeness and outstanding vocal ability’.

Rumour has it that Spot has been headhunted by Taroona and they have offered him a pair of Diadora Classics and some Bike shorts if he signs on for season 2010.
