Only one vote separated the pair from runners-up Jye Brown, Pimpinio, and Lachlan Weidemann, Rupanyup, with Kalkee pair Isaiah Adams and Vincent Macalinga coming third on 11 votes.

Several under-14 players proved to be vote magnets throughout 2021, with two footballers collecting 30 votes throughout the shortened 12-match season.

Thompson polled an impressive 26 votes, ahead of Kalkee’s Olivia Brilliant, 25. 

Taylors Lake’s Kayla Kelm was third on 22 votes.

In the 15 and unders, two votes separated winner Adelle Weidemann, of Rupanyup, 24 votes, and Kaniva-Leeor United’s Victoria Verrall.

Third place went to Taylors Lake’s Lilly Weir, with 19 votes.
