In what can only be described as a first for the Club, the Pig Hunters broke with tradition and chose not to hold their End of Season Awards at the usual venue – Kittens. Nor were they held at Goldfingers, the Men’s Gallery, or Peppermint Hippo’s. No strippers, no boobies, no fluffers. Instead, manager essenn took a rather low-key approach and had a good old fashioned BBQ in the privacy of his backyard.
“I wanted to keep our End of Season Awards away from these sort of venues for once. In the past there have been too many prying eyes reporting on everything we got up to. We’ve got some talented kids that are on the verge of exploding this coming season… and the last thing they needed was bad publicity, or thinking they had made it because they got mentioned (for the wrong reasons) in the papers. So I decided to host it myself – with no reporters or photographers allowed!” - essenn
With no independant eye-witnesses available to verify or deny exactly what happened last weekend, the blog can only publish the information that was officially released by the Club today – the Award winners (listed below). But some inside information has emerged of late, courtesy of anonymous source. These included:
- that essenn welcomed last seasons late signings Fortin and Clark to the Club, hoping that they would drive the Pigs forward;
- anything less than round 7 of the Cup would be considered a failure;
- winning the GL4 wass high on the priority list;
- no strippers, no boobies, no fluffers… seriously, did you really believe that??
Pig of the Season: Glenn Harrison
Back-to-back awards for Harrison… and who could argue it? Top goal scorer for the Club, six MVP’s for the season – and the best is still yet to come! Harrison, yet again, gets to wear the no.13 shirt for another season
Young Pig of the Season: Fitzroy O’Grady
Competing against the home-grown talents, young Fitzroy has shown guts and determination in upstaging many of the former Piglet proteges throughout the season. The former Whites Wongs player will now be known as ‘Little Piggie‘ for the new season.
Top Scorer: Glenn Harrison
Harrison gets the official Award for Top Scorer with 9 goals in competitive matches. But with Harrison claiming the Pig of the Season gong, Sigismondo Reboa (pictured), the runner-up with 8 goals, gets to wear the no.9 for next season.
