Sunshine Coast Football wishes to publicly congratulate the many outstanding players, coaches, clubs and referees who were recently recognised as winning our prestigious annual awards.
After a challenging year, the 2020 season reached a successful conclusion earlier this month thanks to the support, patience and commitment of our members.
At senior level, Cameron Nairn was named McDonald’s Premier Men’s Male Player of the Year after scoring a league-high 27 goals for Beerwah Glasshouse United, while Kiara Rychvalsky was named McDonald’s Premier Women’s Female Player of the Year after leading the way for Nambour Yandina United.
Kevin A’Herne-Evans of Noosa Lions and Maroochydore FC’s Andrew Scarff took out Coach of the Year honours for the Premier Men and Premier Women competitions respectively, having guided their teams to Premiership success.
At junior level, special mention must go to leading male goal scorer Rocco Guerrera from Maroochydore and leading female goal scorer Darcy Evans from Buderim Wanderers.
Rocco and Darcy both scored more than 50 goals, an incredible achievement.
Meanwhile, there were six different recipients of referee awards, with Jay Hudson, Steve Boyle, Louise Merritt, Julian Nisbet, Brenton Liaropoulos and Kyal Foster all recognised for a great season.
