Francesco Schimizzi took out the Golden Boot award. Joe Mastrantuone was awarded the Metro Knights Dino Polisena Perpetual Award. The award, which is selected by the previous year's recipient, is about paying tribute to those who often unselfishly sacrifice themselves for the good of this club. The award is only awarded to a non-paid individual who has been involved with our club for the past 12 months. It is a recognition for services of and individual over and beyond expectations.
