In a low key event held last night, selected members and guests were on hand for the Pig Hunters’ annual end-of-season awards. Manager essenn kept the formalities short and sweet…
“To begin with, I won’t be reviewing the season tonight… I already did that a few weeks ago!”
“Instead, I would like to start by inducting 2 new players to the ’100 Club’. Only 5 players in the past have represented the Pigs in over 100 official matches – Scotney, Chudasama, Cacavelos, Adelørn, and Ova Dunn. These great Pig legends are now joined by Jovan Janić and Reginald Mercurio, who both made their 100 appearance for the Pigs during the past season. Congratulations to both of these fine stalwarts of the Club.”
“With the recent announcement by HT of off-season friendlies, it is with great pleasure that we have arranged a match this Sunday against our good friends at Seaford FC. Almost all Pig fans will remember that come-from-behind win in last seasons’ Cup fixture against the Sharks, a win that gave me (and the Pigs) bragging rights over fellow manager Dough_Boy. The up-coming game is only a friendly and will be played at a neutral stadium… so regardless of the result, we will still be laughing afterwards “
“And with that all said and done, I now present you with this seasons Award winners…”
Pig of the Season: Glenn Harrison
11 goals for the season and voted 9 times as MVP, Harrison takes out another PoS gong… all this despite his form being less than acceptable for most of the season. He gets to wear the famous no.13 shirt for the next campaign.
Young Pig of the Season: Garry Bell
The former Piglet takes the award over another former Piglet in Ross Oram. With not much separating the two players, the final decision was made due to the fact the Bell scored more goals throughout the season.
Top Scorer: Rob Arkell
The most expensive signing in Pig Hunters’ history knocked in 23 goals in his first season with the Club, including 8 goals in the Cup. Unlucky not to win the PoS, the 22 year old is well on the way to Pig ‘legend’ status.
