Will Gilmore has been crowned the 2019 Old Paradians Football Club Best & Fairest at the annual Presentation Night.  The Kos Club, in Northcote was the setting for this year's event, as sponsors, supporters and parents joined the players to celebrate the achievements of their teammates.

It was acknowledged that whilst it was a tough year on the field, the camaraderie shown amongst the group was amazing, and the willingness to put 2019 behind us and launch into 2020 was strong.

Mike Jolley was presented with a gift of appreciation by the players for his service to the Club over the past nine years as President, and Peter Cosgriff was also given a rousing farewell as he departs his post as coach of the Under 19s.

in addition to the Senior Best & Fairest, Will also took out the coveted "Frank Gleeson Award" for the most courageous player, as voted on by his fellow players.  Frank was on hand to present the award, and also gave an impassioned speech for the boys to dust themselves off and get cracking for 2020.  All the winners can be found below
