Borholm and Molyneux tie for Schluter

September 24, 2020

Marc Borholm of Angaston and Charlie Molyneux of Gawler Central tied for the Schluter and Mail Medals with 11 votes last Tuesday night for being judged the Fairest and Most Brilliant A-Grade Footballers playing in the Barossa, Light & Gawler Football Association during the 2020 season.

Marc only played five out of the seven game season, due to injury in round six which kept him out of the remaining games and the injury was ironically against Gawler Central.

Charlie played all seven games and he also won the award in 2017.

With both players level coming into the last round, Marc could not poll due to injury and Charlie could not poll as they had the forfeit from Freeling.

Runner-up, on 10 votes, was last year’s runner-up, Steven Summerton, Angaston.

Marc is the first Angaston player to win since Craig Harvey in 2010 and 11th Angaston player to win the award.

   Charlie is the first Gawler Central player to win this award since he himself won in 2017 and prior to that Jason Blakemore won in 2015 and Daniel Stanley in 2014.

   It is the tenth medal to be won by Gawler Central and their fifth in the B.L.&G.

   The last tie was 2012 when Sam Agars, Tanunda; Luke Wells, Tanunda and Jason MacKenzie, Kapunda all tied on 14 votes.

   Eleven votes is the least number needed to win since 1945 when Jim Tummell, Tanunda won with 11.

   1945 was similar to 2020 being a shortened season due to the ending of World War II and the season only consisted of six games compared to seven this year.

   Reserves Medal was won by Clint Hill, Gawler Central with nine votes. The last medal won by Gawler Central was Ben Walter in 2015 and Gawler Central have now won four Reserves Medals.

   Dylan Pilkington, Gawler Central; Johnathon Schulz, Gawler Central and Ryan Bignell, Tanunda all polled six votes to be runners-up.

   There was also a tie in the Under 17’s with Luke Hadju, Barossa District and Tahjin Krieg, Willaston both on 11.

   Barossa last won this award in 2018 with Tyson Lane and Barossa have won this award five times.

   Willaston last won this award in 2015 when Loclahne Elliott tied with Ben Washington, South Gawler which was the last tie in this grade.

   Willaston have now won seven Under 17 medals.

  Runner-up was Kade Rohrlach, Nuriootpa nine, followed by Henry Ratcliff, Angaston and Kai Rosenzweig, Nuriootpa both on eight.

   Under 15’s was won by William O’Brien, Barossa District with 19 and he also won the goal kicking award.

   Barossa also won this medal last year with Liam Tappert and Barossa have now won four of these medals.

   Second was Hudson Vivian, Gawler Central 13 and Kane Materne, Nuriootpa third with 12 votes.

   The count was run by the B., L. & G. Association and live streamed for the first time ever due to Covid-19.

   Previously the count has been held at the Vine Inn Barossa, Nuriootpa and also at the Gawler Arms in 1998 and the Lyndoch Hotel in 1999.

   The medals will be presented at today’s Grand Finals.

   The last time Best & Fairest Medals were presented at the Grand Finals was 1972 when Bob Bradtke, Tanunda won A-Grade; Lindsay Stevens, Angaston won Reserves; Ian Falkenberg, Nuriootpa Under 17 and Under 15’s was won by Steve Miller, Tanunda.

   In 1973 the club’s became hosts of the night (in alphabetical order) starting with Angaston in 1973 when Peter Kleinig, Angaston won A-Grade; Lindsay Stevens, Angaston won Reserves; David Jarman, Kapunda won Under 17’s and Kerin Jasper, Nuriootpa won Under 15’s.

   All other usual awards were suspended this year due to Covid-19, apart from the leading goal kickers who will be awarded their trophies at their club’s presentation nights.

   A-Grade: Brad Mercer, Gawler Central 33; Reserves, Will Moulds, Angaston 26; Thomas Clements, South Gawler Under 17’s 36 goals and William O’Brien won Under 15’s for Barossa District with 27 goals.
