March 8th, 2008 — Archie Thompson, Leigh Broxham, MVFC Awards, Melbourne Victory, Rodrigo Vargas
Archie Thompson and Rodrigo Vargas were announced as co-winners of the Victory Medal last night.
Kevin Muscat and Michael Theoklitos were joint runners-up, with Carlos Hernández trailing a point behind.
Both Thompson and Vargas picked up other awards as well, with Thompson receiving the SEN Player of the Year award and Vargas voted Players’ Player of the Year. Leigh Broxham also won multiple awards, scoring both the Clubman of the Year and the Age Young Player of the Year awards.
None of the results particularly surprise me, even though they are quite different from the Fans’ Choice Melbourne Victory Awards we hosted on MVFC Blog a month ago. Fans picked Michael Theoklitos for Best Player and Sebastian Ryall for Best Young Player (Leigh Broxham was a very distant third in that contest).

Pim Verbeek announced his 22-man selection for a Socceroos training camp next week. Among them are Melbourne Victory’s Archie Thompson, Kevin Muscat and Rodrigo Vargas.
Only A-League players were picked for the training camp, though Verbeek insists there’s no guarantee that he’ll pick exclusively A-League players for the opening World Cup qualifier against Qatar on February 6.
On his perception of the A-League, Verbeek said:
“I enjoyed every game I’ve seen, the stadiums are fantastic, the crowds are unbelievable.”
“I saw great goals, but I saw also unbelievable mistakes.”
“It’s up to me to find out if the players make that same mistake too many times because then I cannot use them.” (The World Game) Continue reading →
August 22nd, 2007 — Leigh Broxham, Melbourne Victory, Players
Leigh Broxham couldn’t have joined the Melbourne Victory at a better time. He signed for three years at the end of last season and featured in a number of Victory games, culminating in the big one: the Grand Final.
For an 18 year old, that’s a pretty decent way to start your contract with an A-League club.
In actual fact, Broxham has been a rising star for some time now. He became a pupil with the Victorian Institute of Sport in 2003 and the following year he captained the Victorian Under 17s, having been named the Victorian under-16 player of the year.
