“Jordon’s team first mentality has pushed him up in the eyes of his team mates and has gained great respect from them as they know he will play his role on game day every week, his application to a consistent training ethic and hard work on and off the field has raised his game to another level”.
“Jordon is very easy to coach through always wanting to better himself and the team; this is a fantastic recognition for all the hard work he has put into developing his game”.
Tasmanian State League General Manager, Shaun Young, congratulated Arnold on winning the award that recognises one of Tasmania’s greatest footballers, former Richmond star Matthew Richardson.
