Ludski named Jackas’ best for 2013

AJAX gun midfielder Josh Ludski has taken out his maiden Michael Ritterman best and fairest award, as the club honoured its top players and officials at its presentation night last week.

AJAX gun midfielder Josh Ludski has taken out his maiden Michael Ritterman best and fairest award, as the club honoured its top players and officials at its presentation night last week.

In his fourth year at the club, Ludski polled a whopping 133 votes from 18 games to finish ahead of runner-up Eugene Routman (105) and skipper Marcus Jankie (91).

“Playing in a very strong AJAX team, it’s a very proud moment to win the award,” Ludski told The AJN.

“It was my most consistent year, probably because I was given more of an opportunity to play in the middle of the ground.”

The 21-year-old star is not resting on his laurels, hoping for a bigger and better season next year in the club’s hunt for a spot in A-Grade.

“For me, it’s not about the individual recognition,” Ludski said.

“I reckon the team will have a big year next year, with the young guys coming through, it looks like it could be the perfect storm for us.”

Nadav Harel took out the Reserves’ top gong, while young gun Adam Lerner was named the Under-19s’ best player.

Meanwhile, gun forward David Fayman took out two awards on the night – his fourth consecutive John Brustman Golden Boot to honour his 60-goal season and the Maccabi Sportsman of the Year award to recognise his efforts on both the football and cricket fields.
