Joe Poynton Award Winners

The Joe Poynton Award commemorates one of the most legendary figures in the proud history of the Nedlands club. As an 18 year old, Joe played in Nedlands first ever 1st grade premiership victory in 1940. Then, 17 years later, he played in Nedlands second 1st grade premiership victory in 1957. Joe also served for two terms as president, represented WA with distinction and was Nedlands third Life Member behind founding club members John Poor and Clifford Stark. His heroics in the war were even more legendary. Pte Joe Poynton was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Medal for bravery for his heroics on the night and morning of February 19-20 in 1941, for his role in the defence of the airfield in Kupang when Portuguese Timor was being invaded by Japanese forces. Joe Poynton died in 2004.
