The Big Eagle wins the Senior Best and Fairest in a landslide.

A change of tradition saw the Eagles turn up for a lazy Sunday at the Showgrounds to present the players with their Best and Fairest awards for 2013.

Ruckman Jeremy Page took out the seniors B’n’F with 148 votes, with speedy onballer Janan Daniel coming in second with 102 votes and centre-half-back Chris Horman finishing third 26 votes back on 76.

With 15 votes possible from each round, Page managed the maximum on a massive four occasions, while also being awarded best on ground honours by one or two of the three voters in 10 of the 18 games.

Janan Daniel at the young age of 20 will be looking to improve on his already stellar 2012 season and give the Eagles the biggest chance to reach division one in 2014.

Janan Daniel has the capability of being the most dangerous footballer in the NFL.

In the reserves, James Robinson with 103 votes outlasted skipper Ben Morgan by 10 votes to claim the WFC reserves best and fairest. Brian Holmes with 62 votes finished third.

The Eagles under 19s came down to the wire with up and coming big man Michael ‘Porkchop’ Brennan taking home the award with 64 votes.  Josh Stroud (60) and Skipper Mitch Taplin (54) round out the top 3.

In the netball, defender Jess Bartlett took out the section one best and fairest one vote in front of Rebecca Kelly and Jade Bransgrove who tied for second. Shannen Balmumcu finished third.

Shannon Bell took home the section two best and fairest with Lauren Byrnes and Olivia Vella finishing second and third respectively.

Cassandra Northrop ran away to win the section three best and fairest comfortably with Michelle Cornfoot and Rebecca Hocking eleven and eight votes behind Northrop.

Young gun Annie Bugden stormed home to win the section four best and fairest. Bugden took home the chocolates by four votes in front of Lauren Stewart (26) and Rachel Menzies (20).

A special mention has to go to Josh Pannell for taking home the reserves coaches award as a result of his hardwork and commitment all season. Good work Joshy!
