The Rococo Noosa Tigers celebrated both their senior and junior clubs presentation days last weekend with individual excellence both on and off the field.
The presentations started last Wednesday night when our Coolum Noosa Colts and Inclusion teams had their end of year celebration at the footy club in what was just a fantastic evening.
Some of the speeches from our inclusion boys were just priceless and a big thank you to coach Rob Purvis and his assistants for giving these guys the chance to play footy and represent the Noosa Tigers which they are certainly proud to be a part of.
Shane Dawes spoke glowingly of his charges after a year cut short by covid ruined the colts chances of playing finals footy.
Best and Fairest Lachy Wilson and runner up Marty Kelly spoke like leaders and will certainly be mainstays of the Tigers senior group in future years.
The senior men’s and women’s presentation night was held at the beautiful Boathouse restaurant on the Noosa river on Noosa Show Day.
Of course our women’s team was duly celebrated for their back to back glory with co captain Cass Young walking away with the Best and Fairest after a stellar year for the tigers.
Madi Trompf finished runner up whilst older sister Keirra rounding out the top 3. Great year girls and a big congrats also to Burgs, Ando and Insy who guided these girls to yet another premiership win.
Club legends Aaron Laskey and Garry Wallace took out the senior and reserves Best and Fairest respectively whilst departing coach and one of the clubs all time greats Adam Bovalino was given a deserving tribute on the night.
Ex President and Noosa stalwart Rob Purvis did a terrific job as master of ceremonies as he too was farewelled after years of hard work. Camera man and live stream guru Arnie Schellars was awarded the 2021 Club Person of the year and no one could disagree on a more appropriate winner.
A big thanks also to club sponsors the boathouse for hosting the event and to Cass Young for organising the night.
The weekend rounded out with our junior presentation day on Sunday which attracted a huge attendance. A high marking inflatable and a sausage sizzle were the order of the day whilst the bar ticked over beautifully all day. Ollie Caspers and his premiership winning under 12 boys team were presented to the strong crowd who responded with rapturous applause whilst Hunter Walker received our volunteer of the year award after being nothing short of just a magnificent help the entire year.
Just an awesome day to finish the year and special thanks to all those who made it happen, in particular Lisa Beauclerc and our new GM Jane Davis!
Can’t wait for the AFL Grand Final in a fortnight! I’m picking the dogs by 11 points !
