Brendan Tingey Claims 2020 Hayward Medal

Brendan Tingey from the Harvey Brunswick Leschenault Football Club has won the 2020 Hayward Medal for the South West Football League.

In a season like no other, the event was live streamed from League Headquarters, with Tingey winning the count by two votes to claim the prestigious award.

Tingey becomes the seventh player from HBL to win the Hayward Medal, with Jesse Chricton winning last years medal giving the Lions back to back victories, with Carey Park the last team to be able to achieve that in 2003 and 2004, with wins to Rhys Croxford and James McRae.

The award was presented to Tingey by 1997 Hayward Medalist, Tony Strano and the Lions Club Rooms.

Tingey polled three votes in round two against Eaton Boomers, two votes in round four against Collie Eagles, before scoring the maximum three votes in round six against Busselton, and a further three votes in round seven against Harvey Bulls to hit the front in the count. He scored a fourth best on ground performance in round eight against Donnybrook to claim victory.

Ethan Maguire who would be the runner-up, polled heavily in the first four rounds, amassing nine votes, including three consecutive best on ground performances.  Tingey would take the lead in round seven, on his way to  three consecutive best on grounds of his own, before Maguire closed the gap in the final round, passing Paul Rinder in the process, but the Medal was already out of reach.

Paul Rinder from the Collie Eagles confirmed his good season, polling in five of the nine rounds to finish third, while Jarrod Humphries and Jordan Falco would tie for fourth.
