TWO newly-crowned Panmure premiership players walked away from Saturday's grand final with some individual spoils around their necks.
Panmure wingman Shamus O'Beirne and centre half-forward Daniel Roache were awarded the two best-on-ground medals from the grand final.
For his scorching display on the wing, O'Beirne won the Scott Stewart medal, while Roache won the VCFL medal after he was awarded best on ground by the umpires.
It was the first senior premiership for both players and O'Beirne said the best-on-ground medal was a pleasant surprise.
"I was happy enough with my game but I didn't expect to win the medal," O'Beirne said.
"I started on the half-forward flank and then went onto the wing, which was good. The Reid Oval has plenty of spaces out on the wings to run."
O'Beirne missed two months of football this season with a fractured wrist but returned in time to find his best form coming into the finals.
Like all forwards , the windy weather made conditions tough for Roache, with delivery often misdirected by the elements . He was still able to provide a strong target and also drift into the ruck when needed during the day.
"I'm stoked for the team and everyone at the club ," Roache said.
"I thought with my own game I started slow but got going OK after that," he said.
