Jenny Elliott with 2018 Ian Elliott Award recipients Nick Bussell and Mitch Bulte.
Ian Elliott was an integral part of the St Marys landscape during his time as player, treasurer & committeeman from 1963-1968. He was an ‘A’ Grade Premiership player, junior coach and club treasurer. Sadly, Ian passed away during 2006.
In memory of his contribution to the club, the Elliott family, and in particular his wife Jenny, have been extremely generous in striking the Ian G. Elliott Perpetual Award, to recognise and assist the Club’s younger players.
The award recognises young players who not only demonstrate talent, but also exhibit a true Club and team attitude and may need assistance to enable them to play the best footy they can.
