The Griffith Australian Football Club held a successful presentation night at the Ex-Servicemen's Club on Friday night.

As was previously announced, Gary Argus was adjudged best and fairest in first grade, Tony Butcher took out the reserves award and Malcolm Burke, the under 18's.

The same players took out the special awards for the various grades.

The Joan Hicks Memorial award, for the conscientious player or club person went to Griffith stalwart Darrell Collins for his service to the club during the year.

He retired from the game, but made a comeback when the club had many injuries and took the early training, plus was on the selection committee.

A new award this season was the Gloria Butcher Memorial, which goes to an under 18 player who shows a lot of promise and Burke took that as well.

The under 18 encouragement award, the Fred Owen Memorial Shield was won by Rod Best and the most promising player award, donated by Mrs Williams, was won by Brett Miller.

The balance of the awards in first grade saw Chris Conlan take out the most consistent, Brent Hathaway most improved, Gerard Toscan best utility and Matthew McGuirk kicked the most goals.

In the reserves, Paul Woolnough was most consistent, Ian Cohen took out the most improved, Travis Payne best utility and Darrell Collins kicked the most goals.

Damien Hill was judged the most consistent in the under 18's, Wayne Donetto most improved, Peter Vardanega best utility and Vardanega and Donetto could not be split for the most goals.

The coaches awards went to Jamie Bennett in the seniors, Graham Huxley in reserves and Brad Colligan took the award in the under 18's.

Ian Geddes won the award for the best in the finals in the seniors and Matthew Mamouney in the reserves.

Gerry Toscan received a trophy to commemorate his 200 games and Greg Collins for his 100th match with the club.

The Bill Simmons Memorial for the best club person went to Rene Wade for her sterling service during the year.

The A grade netball best and fairest was Karen Evans and runner-up was Rachel Neville, while in B grade it was a tie for first between Mara Dreyer and Bernadette Cox.

The annual general meeting of the club will be held at the Ex-Servicemen's Bowling Club on Thursday, October 22.
