Rory racks up the votes


Despite missing five games with a surfing injury, former skipper Rory Angiolella again racked up the umpiresvotes in the VAFA best and fairest count, finishing second in the Premier C Zachariah Medal, just two votes behind Williamstown CYMSs Yuma Hemphill.

Rory is a former GT Moore Medal winner (2015) from Fitzroys time in Premier B and has again had an outstanding season, leading the midfield group. He also polled well in 2016, sharing third place with his co-captain Daniel Bisetto.

Hemphill led the count for much of the night, with Rory charging home late with a run of great games in the latter part of the season. However, the second last home and away game at Williamstown proved to be the difference, with Hemphill voted best on ground and no Fitzroy players picking up votes.

Nino Lazzaro polled several best on ground votes and other strong vote getters for Fitzroy were Julian Turner, Ross Borland and Ted Clayton.

Congratulations Rory on another outstanding season.
