Byron Stretton makes 50th Appearance Stretton makes 50th Appearance

Byron Stretton played his 50th game for Playford in the 5-3 defeat by Rushmere & Diamonds. In his first two seasons Byron played 20 matches but it is the two most recent campaigns that he has truly shone.

2016/2017 saw him collect seven Man of the Match awards in 21 games and romp his way to the Player’s Player of the Season award. He was being deployed as a defensive midfielder where his pace and tirelessness combined themselves in an excellent combination. Making the position his own he was able to strongly protect a three-man defence and give the Reserves the option of pushing another man forward.

2017/2018 saw him start as a forward and score four in two matches before being injured making his First Team debut. He returned in the new year and scored three and assisted a further six, in fact he either scored or assisted a goal in every appearance after Christmas.

Byron has the aforementioned Player’s Player of the Season award along with a Junior Cup Runners Up medal and RM2B league winners medal. He has scored 14 goals and has 12 Man of the Matches from his 51 games.
