THE Bomaderry Tigers senior men's program wrapped up their 2020 AFL South Coast season on Saturday with the unveiling of their major award winners.
After three straight seasons of finishing as runner-up, Courtney Ward claimed the club's prestigious Best and Fairest Award.
The backman polled 21 votes, seeing him finish six ahead of both Charlie Rodden and 2019 co-winner Adriaan Toms.
