FD Book Medal 2019

Monday, October 7, 2019 - 10:24 AM

Young Royal Jackson Ramsay has capped off a stellar year by winning the FD Book Medal as East Perth’s Best and Fairest player for 2019.

Jackson is a product of the East Perth development pathway, hailing from Coolbinia Bombers Junior Football Club. Jackson returned to the Royals at the beginning of the 2018 Season after 5 seasons at Collingwood. Suffering a season ending injury in the first quarter of Round 1 in 2018, Ramsay was determined to make the most of the 2019 Season.

Playing through the midfield, Ramsay’s class and composure under pressure became a feature of East Perth matches and a key area opposition clubs attempted to shut down.

A good start to the season saw Ramsay selected to represent WA against South Australia. A solid showing in this match set, set him up for the remainder of the season, with Jackson becoming one of the most consistent performers in the competition.

Jackson also won the Jeremy Silcock Award, along with Christian Ameduri, as the players who best demonstrate the Royals culture and values.

Shaquille McKenzie was a deserved Runner-Up to Ramsay. ‘Shaq’ played every match this season, returning to the Royals after stints at Subiaco and in the Northern Territory. His talent has been known for a long time, but this year McKenzie added consistency to his game making him one of the first picked in every Royals side. His efforts did not go unnoticed with McKenzie winning the League Coaches Award.

Mitchell Gupanis took out the Eric Smith Medal as our Reserves Fairest and Best ahead of defender Will Young and exciting talent Jacob Msando.

There is plenty of excitement with the Colts with Adam Boules winning the 2019 Hec Stremple Medal as Colts Best and Fairest. Boules, along with Luke Lombardi who placed equal fourth, were young enough to play in our Futures competition this season. Boules featured ahead of Sebit Kuek and Jamie Marinoni who tied for Runner Up
