Marcello Marchioli won Kingborough Lions United’s George Arnott Medal at the club’s trophy night recently.
It was the 21-year-old midfielder’s second consecutive win.
Marchioli was the club’s top scorer and also represented Tasmania against the Central Coast Mariners.
He also took out the club’s Players’ Player-of-the-Year Award, so it was a momentous season for Marchioli.
Kingborough women’s player Madi Iseli won the Zoe Nolan Medal, with new recruit Cassie deVries being the runner-up.
In the men’s Reserves, defender Tim Polmear and striker Liam Brown shared the Bernie Siggins Award.
Colin Hughes won the Reserves’ Players’ Player-of-the-Year Award, while Chris Iseli took out that award for the Under-19s.
Robbie New received life membership from Kingborough Lions United in recognition of his long playing career and off-field work as a major sponsor for the club.
Kingborough Lions United president Brian Dale also rewarded Kate Churchill for her work in the kiosk this year, and Euan and Eddie Rodgers were awarded the Laurie Harvey (Outstanding Club Person) and Mike Perrin (Outstanding Club Service) awards, respectively.
Pete While was also recognised for his lengthy contribution to KLUSC with a Club Service Award.
