SMJFL celebrate Season 2017 with annual Presentation Night

The South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL) celebrated an outstanding season in 2017 with the annual Presentation Night held at Kingston City Hall in conjunction with AFL Victoria. 

All 2017 Premiers were recognised on the night with perpetual cups as well as League Best & Fairest awards for each age group and division, while some were also specially recognised for their efforts and commitment to football in the south-east.

The SMJFL would like to congratulate all those nominated for awards on the night and thank the clubs for these nominations.
