Central Coast Roosters celebrate 2020 campaign

The Central Coast Roosters held their annual Awards Night last Saturday at The Entrance Leagues Club to celebrate their 2020 Harvey Norman Premiership winning campaign. 

Five awards were handed out on what was a successful night, which included one back, two forwards, Players' Player and Best and Fairest. 

Isabelle Kelly was the big winner of the night, claiming the Players' Player award as well as being named the Best and Fairest. 

Three members of the Sydney Roosters NRLW squad were on the winners list, including Brydie Parker (best back), Caitlan Johnston (best forward) and Hannah Southwell (best forward).

Southwell's award is another addition to an already impressive cabinet of accolades in 2020, including the Harvey Norman Player of the series, NRLW tackle of the year, Roosters NRLW Player of the year and the RLPA Players' Champion.

"I wasn't expecting it, and it's a massive honour to get this award with Caitlan because she's an excellent forward in the game," Southwell said on the night. 

"I loved playing footy this year and all the awards was just an honour. 

"I wasn't playing for awards this year, I was playing for the love of it."

Highlights | Women's Premiership Grand Final

Central Coast Roosters Hooker and NRLW assistant coach in 2020, Kyle Hilder was given a signed ball to honour her final season in the competition. 

Initially not planning on playing at the start of the year, Hilder stepped into the role when it was required and reaped the ultimate reward as a result. 

"I'm really glad that I got to play another season with such a great group of girls," Hilder said. 

"To come out as Grand Final winners on top of that, it's just been awesome."

Brydie Parker, who came over to the Central Coast after the Mounties elected not to compete in the re-vamped 2020 competition, was ecstatic that she was honoured on the night. 

With a top quality selection of backs in the squad, Parker's successful 2020 was capped off with deserved recognition for her performance on the field. 

"It was a bit of a surprise, there were so many great girls in contention this year," Parker said. 

"I achieved a lot this year, and an award like this on a night like this just sums up a great year."
