Josh Arnold

Captain Josh Arnold has capped an incredible 2020 season by taking out his first Roy Cazaly Medal as Best & Fairest of the senior side.

Arnold started 2020 by being elevated to the position of co-captain, after six years as Brayden Webb's deputy, then produced a scintilating season across half-back to earn his first TSL Team of the Year selection.

That form was duly reflected in the club's Best & Fairest polling, with Arnold receiving votes in every game, and remarkably topping the voting six times in the 12-game season. 

The result was a runaway win with 53 votes, ahead of the consistent Callen Daly in second place with 36.

"One of the really pleasing things about 2020 was Josh finally got his name on the Glenorchy honourboard as a captain of our club," coach Paul Kennedy said.

"I doubt there would be many people in the club's history who have earned that honour more than Josh has, over such a long period of time. And with Brayden sidelined, and in testing times, he stepped up and led this club brilliantly on and off the field.

"I don't think there would be anyone who isn't absolutely delighted that Josh now has his name on the honourboard twice, as the Cazaly Medal winner as well. He is one of the great clubmen."

To top up his impressive 2020 haul, Arnold also claimed the Magpie Tough award - voted on by his peers - for the player who best represented the team's values, eclipsing Sam Rundle, John Geard, Tom Cleary, James Deegan and youngster Nathan Blowfield.
