PostBowden firms as Roy Cazaly Medal Favourite

After 14 rounds of TSL action Jaye Bowden is firming as favourite of the Glenorchy Best and Fairest medal The Roy Cazaly Medal. Bowden was in fine form for the Magpies against the Dogs at Youngtown on Saturday. Bowden managed to boot 2 goals for Glenorchy as the Magpies ran out winners 16.15.111 to South Launceston 8.12.60.

Bowden has been one of the Pies' best players that last two seasons in the TSL becoming a player Glenorchy can rely on, even against Lauderdale where he almost kicked goal of the year with a massive torpedo. Glenorchy had lost captain Shane Piuselli, Shayne Moles, Chris Glenn, Jamie Kaye, Clinton French, Ben Curley and Andrew Nash as well as AFL draftee Ryan Harwood from the team that was beaten by 1 goal in the 2009 TSL Grand Final mid year Mark Corbett decided to go overseas, but he is now back at the club as well..

Glenorchy opted to recruit young players with veteran forward Michael Darcy being the rare exception to the rule, Darcy had a less then positive start to the season, but he has been coming good for the Pies, booting 4 goals there on the weelend/ The recruitment of Jade Hodge a former member of the New Norfolk SFL Premiership winning side who returned this season has been the recruit of the year for the Pies.

Glenorchy also regained Daniel Fewkes from injury, and welcomed back Callum Garvey, and brought in Jimmy Webster from Brighton who has been a regular for the Tassie Mariners alongside Matthew Dilger and Josh Arnold, Josh came to the club last season from Claremont in the SFL at the request of former Premiership captain Ben Atkin.

Glenorchy has fielded their youngest side since 1994 under former premeirship played Kim Excell, while the Magpies have seen their share of hidings this season, the Magpies have managed some hard fought wins, and can thank guys like Jonathon Bowring, and Jaye Bowden who have helped them a lot this season.

Captain Jesse Crouch returned from a knee injury this season, and has not had the impact he would have liked this season, but he has been a great leader for the Magpies in what can be said as a rebuilding year for the Magpies.

Injury has been a foe of the Magpies this season with captain Jesse Crouch suffering an injury, Bryce O'Garey has been struggling with an injury, and Lyndon Carlton has returned via the Glenorchy reseves from a knee injury he suffered last season.

The blooding of youth has been beneficial to Glenorchy, and has seen the Magpies not drop from top of the ladder last year to down near the bottom. Nathan Matthews has been a very consistent player this season, and he is shaping as a lively prospect for the Maggies, alongside the new Games Development officer Jaye Bowden who looks like he will take the best and fairest this season.

But there is a lot to like about the current crop of Magpies, coached by Ben Reid, assisted by former Magpie heartbreaker Byron Howard, often known in the 1990s as the man to break the hearts of the Magpies.

Clarence seem poised to take the 2010 premiership, but the young Magpies are well on their way to getting back to where they were last season.
