Kyneton Tiger Jordan Savoia has been awarded the club's top honour for an outstanding season in the Central Victoria Football League Women's competition.
Savoia was named as the club's best and fairest winner in what was her debut season playing with the senior women.
"Jordan added so much to the team this year in the way of her work rate and ball skills," Tigers coach Phil Hawkes said.
"Not only on game day, but also while at training, she always went all out.
"Jordan is only a young player and moving forward there's no doubt that she will be an integral part of the club in terms of leadership.
"I can really see her progressing well as a player."
Savoia said she was honoured to have been awarded the club's top award.
"It really was a great year with the team, which also marked my first season playing with the senior women and it was definitely above and beyond what I expected," she said.
Despite it being her first year in the CVFLW, Savoia had spent the previous four seasons playing with the Tigers' junior squad in addition to a stint on the basketball court.
"Now that I am back playing football I've realised it really is the sport I enjoy the most," she said.
Looking ahead to the future Savoia is more than eager to return to the field with the Tigers for the 2022 CVFLW Season.
"As a team, I feel like we're just getting to know and understand each other's strengths which is allowing us to play some really strong games," she said.
Fellow first-year playing Tiger Ursula van Dyk was runner-up in the best and fairest, with both Hawkes and Savoia praising her efforts throughout the season.
"Ursula also has an incredible work rate and sets a very high personal bar for herself," Hawkes said.
"She has great raw talent and as she matures as a player she is certain to become a vital cog in the team.
"In addition, she's also a very nice person off the field and always does whatever she can possibly do to help others."
Also a recipient in the end of season accolades was Skye Sinclair who received the Coach's Award.
"This goes to the team all-rounder for effort both on and off the field," Hawkes said.
"Skye, no matter what, is the player who never complains or drops her head. She will always get on with whatever task she is given and do it to the best of her ability.
"She gets ticks right across the board for her performance and is the type of player who is an important element of our team."
