"I am more concerned about this
weekend, and winning the premiership
is what I want more than anything."
Bevan polled 20 votes including 10
votes in the final five rounds to storm
to victory ahead of Renmark duo Shane
Walker (18) and Trevor Thorpe (17).
Bevan was joined in the Murray
Pioneer team of the year by teammates
Jim Thomson, Matt Butcher and Reid
Bevan was also recognised for
playing his 100th senior game, along
with former captain Ben Venning.
Waikerie A grade football coach
Shayne Stevens said Bevan had made a
great comeback from injury in the past
year to take out the RFL's top honour.
"I think Tim has been a lot more
dangerous in the midfield this year,"
"He struggled a bit with a groin
injury last year and didn't have the
impact on games he probably would
have liked. He really deserved to win it;
he has had a really good season.
"For him to be able to get over those
injuries and come back the way he did
deserves a pat on the back."
Also representing the club on the
night was 17-year-old Tristan Geehman,
who was the joint winner of the new
rising star award, which he shared with
Barmera-Monash's Sam Butterworth.
Tyson Sutton and Frank Twigden
finished equal third in the B grade
medal, just two votes behind eventual
winner Aaron Gill.
Stevens said he had coached
Geehman for the past couple of years
and he had transitioned well from under
18 football to the senior grades.
"He has been fantastic," he said.
"I've been able to coach him for a
couple years now.
"Him and another young lad in
Elliot Modra, they have both made the
transition from under 18 footy to A
grade fairly easily.
"It is fantastic for the club to be able
to push these junior players through so
we can strengthen our senior sides."
Meanwhile Waikerie Football Club
will host its own presentations on
Friday, September 19 (see ad page 17).
