Ben Halton takes out Matthew Richardson Medal
Lauderdale Football Club Forward, Ben Halton, has won the Matthew Richardson Medal in his inaugural season in the RACT Insurance State League.
Awarded to the Rookie of the Year, players eligible for the Matthew Richardson Medal must be under 23 years of age, have played less than 20 games at the commencement of the season, and in no more than two years of senior football.
Ben (aged 22) played 80 senior games with the Cygnet Football Club in the Southern Football League before being recruited by the Lauderdale Football Club in 2014.
Ben’s playing achievements before joining the Tasmanian State League (TSL) indicate that Ben had the attributes to be capable of playing at the TSL level.
5 time leading goal kicker for Cygnet In 2013 Ben kicked 88 goals for Cygnet Represented the SFL twice Represented Tasmania in the under 23s in 2011 and 2013
Playing 12 senior games in 2014, injury forced Ben to miss 6 games in the home and away season, in those games Ben kicked 40 goals for the season returning an average of 3.3 goals a game which suggests Ben would be a contender at the top of the goal kicking leader board if injury had not cut him short of games in the home and away season.
Lauderdale Football Club Head Coach Darren Winter said ,”As a full forward he has excellent speed and strength which makes him very difficult to match up on, his strength is marking on a quick lead, strong in one on one’s and takes a big pack mark.”
“I haven’t seen a player able to mark the football as well as Ben for many years, Ben is a young man who if given an opportunity could step up to the big league.”
Tasmanian State League General Manager, Shaun Young, congratulated Halton on his inaugural season in the TSL and winning the award that recognises one of Tasmania’s greatest footballers, former Richmond star Matthew Richardson.
“The Matthew Richardson Medal is named after one of Tasmania’s modern day greats, and it is great recognition for Ben to receive the medal for his first year in the State League, Ben’s achievement is inspirational to those players that have the attributes and desire to play at the highest possible level in the state if they wish to commit themselves to being the best they can be,” Young said.
In recent weeks two major milestones have been reached by present day Players.
Against Brighton David Bone played his 300th game for the Club.
Against Lindisfarne Julian Direen played his 300th Senior game for the Club.
Congratulations to you both on your respective achievements.
