In addition to his contributions to the Under 15s, Elliott also played a couple of games with the Under 18 Division 2 side and scored one of the goals of their season against Annerley.
The winner of the Junior Golden Boot was Ethan Elix. New to the club this season, Ethan is a prolific striker and scored 22 goals for the Under 15 Division 1 side across the season. Ethan also played up for the Under 18s and also trained with the Under 23s throughout the year.
