The Henry Geary Quiet Achiever Award was presented to Richard NOTICESTodd by Mrs Gill Withers and The Senior Best Club Person Award went to Vice President Paul Bond.

Mrs Jean O’Brien attended the presentation this year alongside her Son’s Peter and Mark and other family members to present a new award – The O’Brien Shield. This award is presented to the fairest player of the season in memory of their late Husband and Father Bill O’Brien who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Bill was a founding member of Bingara Minor League and it was only fitting that there be an award named after him. In it’s inaugural year the O’Brien Shield went to under 8’s player Max Gillogly.

Thank you to everyone who attended to present the awards, to the Bingara RSL Club for hosting our event and to all the players and their Parents for the great season.
