HARROW-BALMORAL’S Sherryn Simpson has taken out the the Horsham District Football Netball League C Reserves Best and Fairest award for 2017.
Simpson said she just enjoyed playing netball with the Southern Roos.
“We had a very enjoyable season,” she said.
“We’ve got a great bunch of girls on the court and I think because we were able to laugh we were able to get a good few wins.”
Harrow-Balmoral was knocked out of the race in Saturday’s preliminary final, but that didn’t put a dampener on things for Simpson.
“We were taught a good netball lesson by Noradjuha-Quantong on the weekend,” she said.
“Best of luck to them in the grand final, they deserve every minute of it.
“It was a brilliant competition.
“The league does a fantastic job every year and I rate it as one of the best competitions I’ve played in for a while.”
Being able to play with her teammates each week was the highlight of the season for Simpson.
“There’s just that comradery and support that you get,” she said. “Then of course it’s the enjoyment of the sport. It’s a sport I’ve always loved and its great to be able to still play it.”
Simpson’s tally of 27 votes ensured she finished well clear of Kalkee’s Claire Mackay who managed 20 votes.
“I’d just like to thank the Harrow-Balmoral Football Netball club,” Simpson said.
“They lead from the front all the way. They have always given me a place to call home, and a place to feel supported. I just enjoy being there.”
