Austin's Brownlow Night

Last night was the Yarrambat Junior Football Club's 
Under 17's Brownlow Night. 
This is where the count is done for the Best and Fairest.
 
We decorated the room which looked lovely.
 
The table centre pieces were old footy boots sprayed gold.
 
We also has a Lolly Buffet for at the end of the night.
 
There was even a red carpet to walk down!
 
The count started and Austin got 5 votes and 4 votes
(2 different voters) for Round 1. 
So at the end of Round 1 he was leader!
 
The coaches spoke about each player. First up a baby photo would be shown. Everyone would try to guess who it was and then their official footy photo came up. The boys were also presented with their playing jumpers to keep.
 
One of the Vice Presidents, Dave, interviewed different players just like at the AFL Brownlow.
(Can you see Noel in the background?
 
Austin placed 5th at the end of the night. Not bad for a full back player. He did an amazing job this season stopping a lot of goals by the opposition.
 
This is Austin's friend from school, Izzy, who came with him to the night. It was a Dress to Impress night and the boys all scrubbed up well. The girls all looked gorgeous too.

Today we are heading back to the club for Presentation Day.
Another year over at Yarrambat Junior Football Club.

Mitchell finished his last home and away round today
and won. They are now in finals next week.
So we're not quite finished with footy yet!
