Northern Inland Premier League: Brent Pedlow claims golden boot

East Armidale striker Brent Pedlow is set to claim the Northern Inland Premier League’s golden boot after a stellar season. 

The Glen Innes local has hit the back of the net 21 times this season – two in front of Tamworth FC’s Kurt Barrow. 

“I think he is the best player in the comp by a long way,” Easts coach Mark Gwynne said. 

“He deserved it, he played well. 

“Every game he plays he gives 100 per cent, he is a class player.”

Pedlow sealed the feat with a goal in Saturday’s final round 2-nil win over North Companions. 

Jake Davies was the side’s other goalscorer. 

While they claimed the win, Gwynne said there is still work to do leading into the semi-finals. 

“It was not the best we have played but in saying that we still came away with two goals,” he said. 

“We had a good couple of chances early, Brent just missed the posts, Jake Mccann a couple of shots just wide of the posts but it was a good result.

“I know we can play better which is a bonus for us but I still say they are the best side with the ball we have played.”
