Melbourne City featured heavily in Tuesday night’s Dolan Warren Awards as Bruno Fornaroli, Thomas Sorensen and Larissa Crummer picked up awards on Australian football’s night of nights.
Aaron Mooy went agonisingly close to winning the top gong, missing out on the Johnny Warren Medal by one vote to Diego Castro as two of the top four players in the running for the award were Melbourne City players.
The Club’s attacking flair in both Men’s and Women’s competitions was celebrated on the night as Larissa Crummer and Bruno Fornaroli picked up the Golden Boot for their respective competitions. Crummer was also named the Young Football of the Year after her stellar season with City.
After cracking three figures for saves this season, Thomas Sorensen was named Goalkeeper of the Year in his first season in Australia as the Great Dane picked up the awards alongside his City team mates at Carriageworks in Sydney.
City’s Kim Little was also voted the Players’ Player of the Year while our W-League team were awarded the Fair Play Award.
