TWO players from the Brighton Seahawks Football Club have shared in one of this season’s best and fairest honours.

The Metro Football League hosted its 2019 Medal Night on Monday with Michael Warrell and Jordan Pearcey both polling 17 votes to take out the division 2 award.

Pearcey said while receiving the 2019 Hodgson Medal was an “individual award” it was “more of a club achievement” and he congratulated his club for “where we are now”, having finished the home an away fixture second on the ladder with 14 wins from 16 games played.

Brighton Seahawks Football Club joint best and fairest winners Michael Warrell and Jordan Pearcey.

He also congratulated his teammate Warrell who “played six games less than me” and still topped the leaderboard.

The division 1 Randall Medal went to Billy Johns of Balga Football Club.

Other winners included Innaloo’s Adam Mesch for Coach of the Year, Koongamia for Best Administered Club and Warwick Greenwood’s president Brendan Currie for Club Administrator of the Year.

The awards follow the first weekend of finals where in division 1, Innaloo beat Warwick Greenwood 21.11 (137) to 12. 7 (79) in the elimination final, and Queens Park beat Midland 10.19 (79) to 8.8 (56) in the qualifying final.

In division 2, Balga beat Kelmscott 22.10 (142) to 4.4 (28) in the elimination final, and Brighton beat Beechboro 17.10 (112) to 5.2 (32) in the qualifying final.

However, Kelmscott will continue through to the semi finals after it was deemed Balga was ineligible to win.

Therefore this Sunday’s semi finals will see Beechboro take on Kelmscott at 10.30am and Queens Park play Brighton at 5pm in division 2.

In division 1, Midland will play Innaloo at 12.30pm and Kelmscott will go up against Queens Park at 2.40pm.

All finals are held at John Dunn Memorial Park in Kelmscott.
