FOUR Kaniva-Leeor United junior footballers have collected a trophy at the Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara league junior vote count.
In the senior colts Kaniva’s Sam Williams-Bale received 82 votes to take out the best footballer of the year award.
A Grade coach Nick Murphy said it is great for Williams-Bale to receive the award as an individual.
“To have someone get so many votes in the season, it’s a real credit to the coaching staff, committee and players for producing a player like that,” he said.
Williams-Bale plays as an on-baller and half forward.
“He’s an inside, big-bodied midfielder. He is explosive and reliable in his ball skills,” Murphy said.
“I am very much looking forward to getting those top age boys in A Grade on a permanent basis.”
Third place was Kaniva’s Blake Dodson who polled 65 votes.
The leading goalkicker for the senior colts was Kaniva’s Kayne Councillor, who scored 64 goals.
“He’s still a bottom age under-17 player,” Murphy said.
“I would have loved to have him in A Grade a bit more this season but because of his age you have to look after him.
“He’s a talented goal kicker and a terrific young versatile player.”
In the junior colts, Kaniva’s Liam Feder was named runner-up best and fairest with a match ratio of 206.66.
