Bargara boy player of the year in Brisbane competition

IN A scary thought for the rest of the Brisbane Hockey League, Cale Cramer says he can still improve his game.

Completing a dream season the Bargara forward was the player of the year for the competition as his Bulimba Bulls also won the league.

Not content though with those two accolades, the 28-year-old proceeded to score two goals in the 5-1 final win over Commercial and win the player of the match award as well.

Overall he scored 33 goals for the season, 10 more than any other player in the competition.

Talking about his fantastic year, Cramer said he would not have had a great season without his team.

"My job is a lot easier being part of this team,” he said.

"We have experienced coaching staff and everyone is on the same page.”

From an individual point of view, Cramer said he was also getting better at analysing the game.

"I'm not as quick as I used to be,” he said.

"I'm getting smarter each year and it was good to score plenty of goals for the club.”

With Cramer still passionate about the game he said he plans to continue for a while yet.

"I love hockey but I'm also busy now with my family life,” he said.

"I'm only 28 and there are still a few good years ahead of me.”

As a former All Black junior he was also back recently for the 45th anniversary of the club.

He said it was great to celebrate the milestone.

"My grandparents helped form the club so it was great to come back,” he said.

"The All Blacks are a successful club so hopefully there are more good years to come.”

The focus for Cramer now is on playing for Queensland in the Australian Hockey League which starts tomorrow in Perth.
