Annual Club Awards

Presented each year at the club Dinner Dance, our annual awards acknowledge individual excellence in the previous season. Listed below are the award winners since 2005. There was no dinner dance in 2010 given the effort invested in the club's centenary celebrations in 2009. Elsewhere, in cases where years are not listed in a category, no award was presented. In some years, exceptional service on and off the pitch across a period of decades is also recognised by our Hall of Fame awards at the dinner dance.
