Schied wins Tom Webcke award
NO one was arguing with the decision to present Aaron Scheid with the Tom Webcke Memorial Club Man of the Year Award at the Wattles Warriors rugby league presentation dinner at Allora on Saturday.
Scheid was appointed club captain for the 2010 season but only played two A-grade games before injury ended his season.
That didn’t mean a season away from rugby league for Scheid, he just put on his volunteers/officials hat to help out the club he loves being a part of.
Wattles president Barry Glass said before injuring his knee, the club captain and back rower had already taken on the role of club junior vice-president.
“He helped out the A-grade team and took notes on each of the games to help with club publicity,” Glass said.
“Aaron had a knee reconstruction on July 1 and was on crutches for a few of the games.
“He was a popular winner of the award.”
The Wattles club has many prestigious awards, including some memorial awards named after past players.
One new award this season was the Geoff Slatter Memorial Award for the highest try scorer in each game.
Geoff Slatter was a passionate Wattles supporter who died in the past year after being a regular at Wattles games since the club entered the Toowoomba competition in the late 1960s.
The Kent Muller Memorial Trophy for Wattles most dedicated player was won by centre Matthew McCarthy.
Glass said the outstanding season by McCarthy was recognised when he was named as one of three players in line for the number four (inside centre) jersey in the S and K Drilling (top) side in the Toowoomba Rugby League for the 2010season.
“The other two in the top three (for number 4) were the top players in TRL Player of the Year points,” Glass said.
