The loss of Amy Gorell last September has touched the lives of not only her friends and family, but the entire AFL Barwon community, including players, coaches,clubs and spectators.
She was an incredibly talented player with a bright and infectious personality. Amy often took the time to help out her club, teammates and broader community where she could, dedicating hours to AFL Barwon programs.
She was a leader, role model and player that many looked up to in both life and Football.
As a Modewarre and Geelong Falcons player, Amy claimed the last ever Youth Girls best-and-fairest in 2016, and made history by winning the inaugural Geelong Junior Football under-19 Girls Division 1 medal in August last year.
Just last weekend, the Falcon's Girl's won the premiership, dedicating the win to Amy and proving the long standing affect the loss has had on many.
The AFL Barwon Commission was approached earlier this year by Amy's mother, Judy, to have the Youth Girl's best-and-fairest award named in her honour, and if that couldn't be done, then Judy was willing to personally fund an entirely new award in the memory of Amy.
The AFL Barwon Commission met on the 7th of May and declined the entire request without reason.
"They decided not to name an award in Amy's honour. There was no formal reason given only to say that they couldn't consider it".
We are asking anyone who knew Amy, saw her play, or has heard of the wonderful person she was, to consider showing their support in getting an award dedicated in her memory.
We want to show the AFL Barwon Commission that it is not just her friends and family that want this award, but an entire Football community.
