BOMADERRY Tigers club legend Neville “Sticks” Hickmott has been unveiled as AFL South Coast’s inaugural Hall of Fame inductee at Sunday’s Tunbridge Medal presentation dinner.
Hickmott has been associated with the Tigers since 1976, playing a club record 423 games during his career, while also taking on roles such as first and reserve grade coach, as well as club secretary.
He also played 20 matches for South Coast, a team he still acts as the team manager for.
Other career accomplishments include; named a life member of the Bomaderry Tigers AFC in 1985, awarded AFLSC’s volunteer of the year in both 2011 and 2015, reserve grade leading goal-kicker in 2003 and named a club legend in 2011.
“This is a huge honour and I’m very humbled to receive this recognition,” Hickmott said.
“I’m lost for words, which if anyone knows me, if very unlike me.”
