Awards cap off great run

BEN McLennan capped off a great year by winning the two top awards at the Grafton Ghosts Presentation Night held at the Grafton District Services Club on Friday night, attended by 130 guests.

McLennan won Best and Fairest in first grade, plus the prestigious Players' Player award.

The awards capped off a memorable year in which he was named NRRRL lock of the year, played his 100th first grade game for the Ghosts, represented the NRRRL and played a big part in the Ghosts reaching the preliminary finals.

Coach Farrell outlined the club's plans for 2014 and said that the bulk of 2013 players had resigned and negotiations were well advanced with players outside the club to strengthen the club's playing roster.

First grade manager Joe Kinnane said several of this year's squad had been targeted by neighbouring clubs but was happy to report the bulk of the players would be retained by the Ghosts.

He said it was a sign of the club's success that several in the squad had been approached to coach elsewhere.
