Former Toodyay Lions footy star scores more top Perth honours

FORMER Toodyay Lions footballer Kieran Hug (28) (pictured centre) has continued his winning ways by taking out this year’s League Players’ Player Award at Perth Football Club.

The talented midfielder moved to the Perth Demons at the start of this year’s footy season after winning the West Coast Eagles’ Fairest and Best Award in the WA Football League last year when he was the Eagles’ leading goalkicker in the WAFL competition.

Kieran’s family live in Toodyay, and he played with the Toodyay Lions from aged eight to 16.

The young footy star played at every age level in the Mortlock League and attended Australian Sports Football Camps during school holidays.

The Toodyay Lions are affiliated with the Demons, and Kieran was selected at age 14 to attend the Perth club’s development squad before leaving Toodyay to join the Donnybrook team to advance his career in the SW Football League.

Though the Demons didn’t make it to this year’s finals, Kieran ended the year on a winning note with his latest players’award.
