MUAFC’s Amanda Farrugia wins 2017 Mostyn Medal

A fine season by Macquarie University Captain, Amanda Farrugia was rewarded on Monday night as the star midfielder took out her second Mostyn Medal at Doltone House in Pyrmont.

On the back of her first season with the GWS GIANTS AFL Women’s team, Amanda was dominant in 2017 as she re-joined Macquarie University. The one known as ‘Fridge’, amassed an incredible 28 votes in her sixteen home and away season games. She was also damaging on the score board, kicking 12 goals across the length of the season.

Amanda polled an impressive eleven times throughout the count, including six best on ground performances in which she claimed the three votes.

The Mostyn Medallist said she enjoyed her football in 2017 and that she had noticed a remarkable lift in standard of play across all teams.

“It’s been a pretty busy year to be honest with you, especially on the back of the AFLW season,” Farrugia said upon accepting her award.

“But it was quite nice coming back to Macquarie University because it is such familiar territory. It’s the only club I will probably ever play for.”

Amanda took out the Mostyn Medal by three votes, finishing ahead of Sydney University’s Nicola Barr (25 votes), UNSW Eastern Suburbs Stingrays’ Phoebe Monahan (23 votes), and Sydney University’s Stephanie Walker (17 votes).

AFL Sydney would like to congratulate Amanda Farrugia on winning the 2017 Mostyn Medal.
