RICHMOND Rovers' Jonathan See and Bangalow's Jade Bianchetti have scooped the pool in the individual awards at FFNC's annual presentation night

The two strikers each picked up the double, with See winning the men's Player of the Year and Golden Boot awards and Bianchetti taking out the women's.

See equalled the record goal tally of 28 set last year by Byron Bay's Sebastian Bell, while Bianchetti racked up a remarkable 40 goals.

She also won the double last year and is recognised as the dominant female player in the game.

It was a big night for Rovers, which also won the much prized Club Championship and had premier coach Brian Bugden voted by his peers as Coach of the Year.

Luke McWaide from Lismore Workers took out the Women's Coach of the Year.

Long-serving Stuart Bradley was awarded the Referee of the Year for the fourth time since 2002.

The FFNC Premier teams also were announced.
