Each round we will announce one Player of the Round, who will win a dinner for two at Surjits Indian Restaurant, and one Performance of the Round, who will win a $20 voucher at The Nags Head Hotel.
For round 1, Ashton May has claimed the Player for the Round for his all-round performance in 1st Grade's win over Campbelltown-Camden. As a debutant, Ashton will get the opportunity to sample the finest Indian food in Sydney from Surjits for the first time.
Performance of the Round goes out to club favourite and 3rd Grade skipper, Ash Cowan, for his match defining 5-23 to help defend a meagre total at St Paul's Oval. We're sure Ash will make full use of this Nags Head voucher.
