Tigers captain earns Kyneton’s team champion award

by Nathan Dole
KYNETON captain Josh Govan capped a superb season in the Bendigo Bank Bendigo Football Netball League  by winning the Tigers seniors best and fairest award.

The tough on-baller played a crucial role in the club’s  run to a third-place finish and the double chance for the finals action.

Govan’s play earned selection in the Bendigo Advertiser Team of the Year on the interchange bench.

Runner-up for the Tigers’ major award was ruck-rover Rhys Magin, a three-time winner of the club’s best and fairest.

The Tigers’ most valuable player award was presented to key defender Harrison Huntley.

Magin and Huntley were selected as ruck-rover and full-back in the Bendigo Advertiser Team of the Year.

On the goalkicking front, Ethan Foreman led the Tigers attack on 58 goals.

The Luke Beattie-coached senior line-up achieved a win-loss record of 12-5 after it kicked off the season with a draw against South Bendigo at Tigerland.

Kyneton’s finals campaign was not so great as Eaglehawk and Sandhurst scored big wins.

On the netball court, Kyneton scored a 47-46 victory against Kangaroo Flat to be premiers in the A-reserve competition.

Michelle Fletcher was best and fairest for the premiership-winning team as Jessica Mangan and Hayley Page were joint runners-up.

It was double celebration for the Mangans as Brooke Mangan was named most valuable player.
