Both Devonport City and Ulverstone were the big winners at the 2018 Football Federation Tasmania awards on Saturday night.
Strikers talisman Brayden Mann absolutely romped home to win the Mitsubishi Medal, smashing the record for most votes in an NPL season in the process.
The 25-year-old polled 37 votes to finish a whopping 18 votes ahead of Brazilian Renato De Vecchi Marins from South Hobart.
The win was in doubt after 12 rounds when Mann on 20 votes led Launceston City striker Tyler Fischer by three and De Vecchi by four.
Mann went on an extraordinary run after that to poll four best-on-ground performances and a further two votes in three other matches to streak away.
But teammate Michael Holden pipped out the second-placed Mann for the MVP award.
City import pair Tyler Fischer and Niko Giantsopoulos finished third and fourth place, with Olympia Warriors defender Lucas Hill rounding off the top five.
Georgia Foote claimed the Optus Medal for the Women’s Super League, beating out her sister Lucy Foote by one vote in what was a three way race between the pair and Ulverstone teammate Jazmin Gorrie, who held the lead multiple times.
In other major awards, Olympia Warriors attacker Joffrey Nkoso took out the rising star award as the best young player to have established himself in the NPL in 2018 as voted by the coaches.
Strikers’ Chris Gallo and Ulverstone pair Mal Gorrie and Lucy Foote took out the coaches awards after their sides took out the titles.
