Tuesday night’s YJFL Presentation Night was a major hit, with the Best and Fairest winners awarded in the culmination of a sensational season for all our clubs, players and community.
The Centre Ivanhoe was the host for over 1000 guests between two sessions where numerous awards were presented, and recognition given.
The Best and Fairest awards were presented live by our Digital Media Partner GameFace where the YJFL community joined in their droves for both sessions to witness and celebrate those who were awarded the top players in their divisions.
We also were lucky to celebrate other winners on the night which included Umpires, Oakleigh Chargers, Northern Knights and our own Yarra Magpies Academy.
Thank you to YJFL League Patron Luke Power for joining us in both sessions and giving us an insight to his work at Carlton and the players there now who were once in the YJFL.
