Prahran Football Club, Thu Nov 22, 2018 4:25PM

CONGRATULATIONS to our head trainer Rachael Wiseman, named VAFA Trainer Of The Year and to David Turner, from Stonnington Leader who won the AFL Victoria Best Feature Story (Community) submitted on the club's behalf for his award winning article "The Sounds Of Silence'' on the evolution of 10 hearing impaired players in our first women's team.

The introduction of the hearing impaired players from Melbourne Deaf School was the inspiration of coach Wayne Oswald and Turner penned a heart warming account of how the girls integrated into our women's team.

Rachael’s award was presented at the VAFA AGM at Elsternwick Park on Monday December 3. Rachael was in charge of both the senior mens and womens team and during the season compiled a dossier on the vexed question of concussion to provide guidelines for the club.
