The Sydney Hills Eagles 2014 Club Champion vote came down to the wire, with 2013 Club Champion Trent Stubbs and new recruit Michael Riseley sharing the coveted award.
The joint win is tribute to a fantastic season for both players who have been consistent performers in an otherwise inconsistent season for the team.
In honouring Trent Stubbs, NEAFL Coach Micheal Sankey offered, “Trent led just about every key KPI at the Eagles in 2014 averaging over 30 possessions a week as well as leading the clearance count, contested and uncontested possessions, marks, inside 50’s and he finished 3rd in the Eagles’ tackle counts. Not only was he able to lead most of these KPIs but he was also able to finish equal second on the Eagles’ goal kicking table. For a starting midfielder, this is an outstanding achievement”.
In his first season at the Eagles, Casey Scorpions’ recruit Michael Riseley has impressed everyone on and off the field. Again, buy viagra online in usa Michael Sankey was full of praise for Riseley. “Throughout season 2014 Michael’s magnet was one of the first placed on the board and he was always the first defender to receive a nominated match up on the opposition’s best forward every week. Not only was he able to stop his opponents from scoring goals, but he was also able to find plenty of the football himself and give us great rebound from our backline. As a key position backman, his numbers were outstanding as he regularly achieved high possession counts averaging in the early 20’s. This along with his intercept marking, contested marking, spoiling and rebounding run from the defensive 50, are the standout parts of his game”.
