AFTER leading his team to its first Ballarat and District Soccer Association league title, Warrnambool midfielder Martin Van Rooy has capped off a memorable season with the Scott Anwyl Medal.
The Rangers star polled 25 votes to secure a three-vote win from North United’s Sammy Muscat and claim the senior men’s best and fairest at a special presentation evening at St Patrick’s College last night.
Ballarat’s golden boot winner Isaac Harbour was third, a further four votes behind.
Van Rooy’s standout season still has plenty to play out.
He and his Rangers’ teammates have sights set on claiming the league double, with Warrnambool to tackle North United tomorrow for a chance to meet Ballarat in the cup final.
Meanwhile, Vikings player Emelia Williams took home the senior women’s best and fairest.
Williams collected 21 votes throughout the home and away rounds to finish one clear of runner-up Alyson Pym, from Vic Park.
Warrnambool was also rejoicing in the reserves after Eli Slater took home the top individual gong.
Slater received 20 votes to be three ahead of Forest Rangers’ Mykel Smith.
Last year’s Scott Anwyl Medal winner Dragi Koleski dropped to division three with home team Daylesford in 2013 and took home a two-vote win in the best and fairest award.
Koleski polled 17 votes to finish ahead of Ballarat’s Peter Gaffney.
