Brisbane Roar is pleased to announce four new club awards to be presented annually, beginning with tonight-s Presentation Night 2013 at the Pullman Hotel.

In keeping with their Hyundai A-League counterparts, Brisbane Roar-s Westfield W-League team will now have Golden Boot and Goal of the Year awards while the club will also include a Staff Member of the Year award.

Brisbane Roar has also introduced a Young Player of the Year, a trophy awarded to the best young player under the age of 21 at the club currently featuring regularly in either the Hyundai A-League or Westfield W-League squad.

Managing Director Sean Dobson said the new award was proof the club was encouraging youth development.

Attitude on and off the field forms an important criteria for the award, he explained, with the club eager to acknowledge young players who are always willing to improve and take guidance from both the coaching staff and senior players.

“Brisbane Roar has a proud history of developing young footballers, especially young Queenslanders,” Dobson said.

“This new award will ensure this will continue in the future while rewarding the hard work and effort of those players who have now made the successful transition to senior level.”
