Barellan’s Matt Irvin has made it a hat-trick of club best-and-fairest awards, claiming the honour for the third straight year – all three seasons the club has been back in the Farrer League.

In a year in which he also was co-coach for most of the season, Irvin’s consistency saw him claim a convincing win, from one of the Two Blues’ Canberra-based recruits, Mal Fernie, with Matt Bernasconi third.

The Two Blues are continuing to search for a coach for 2018, with the Irvin-Dave Curran partnership only an interim measure, following the exit of Darren Jackson early in the season.

John Evans won Barellan’s reserve grade best-and-fairest, from Lexi McDermott.

Bridgette Keely took the honour for Barellan’s A Grade netball side, after finishing third in the league medal count. Alice Kenny was runner-up.

Renae Rawle was named best-and-fairest in Barellan’s premiership-winning A reserve side. It capped a big season for the attacker, who was best-on-court in the grand final.

Millie McIntyre and Anna Melvin won the B and C grade awards, respectively.
