In a first for the New England Nomads, coach Jed Ellis-Cluff was the joint winner of the TAFL’s Gilles Medal for best and fairest, counted last night in Gunnedah. He shared the coveted prize with Daniel Leon of the Tamworth Kangaroos. Ellis-Cluff also won the goal-kicking prize for the TAFL scoring 65 majors for the home and away season.
And to top things off nicely, our own Cameron “Cammy” Graham won the rising star award for the league – an award his older brother David Richards won a few years ago.
Although the Nomads have over the years had a number of players winning the Runners-Up prize—including Tom Hunt, David Richards, Norm Northway and Rowdy Ballagh—no Nomad has previously managed to snag the big one.
Congratulations to both Jed and Cammy for well-deserved wins.
