The strength of Riverside Olympic's junior program shone out as the club reflected on its first season back in statewide competition.
Teenage goalkeeper Jarrod Hill added Olympic's senior player of the year award to his NPL Tasmania rising star and state team selection and was one of three under-18s among the club's four best players.
The 18-year-old was quick to highlight the abundance of youth among the major vote-getters after topping the poll with 67 as former Northern junior representative teammates Liam Gilmore and Will Humphrey also polled strongly.
Gilmore tied for second place (48 votes) with Argentinean import Luca Vigilante as Humphrey (45 votes) added fourth place to his most-promising under-21 award.
"It's great that three of the top four could still have played under-18," Hill said. "It was an amazing year for everyone and I'm very proud of the whole club."
Head coach Alex Gaetani said Hill's future couldn't be brighter.
"He's an extremely talented individual," he said. "His selection in the Tasmanian side showed he is on a par with the best goalkeepers in the league. He is very humble and there is noone more deserving to win this ward."
The result follows another member of the trio's former junior rep team, Charlie Dyer, winning the Launceston City player of the year award.
Madison Gilpin was player of the year for Olympic's Northern Championship-winning women's side, polling 34 votes to finish 11 clear of Meg Connolly, who won the club's overall golden boot award with 33 goals.
Captain Nichola James was the most improved women's player with Connor Hannes claiming the men's equivalent as he prepares to move to Queensland to further his soccer career.
Riley Wakeford (Northern Championship), Bradley Martin (reserves) and Max Reissig (under-18s) were the other player of the year award winners.
Vigilante provided the evening's biggest cheer when he confirmed he will be back next year for another campaign at Windsor Park.
