The Isaachsen Trophy is awarded to the fairest and best player Australia-wide in the most senior men’s State competition home and away qualifying round matches, based on votes awarded by match referees.
This award was donated by Cedric Isaachsen to the Australian Lacrosse Council (ALC) in 1963. He was a remarkable man who had a distinguished military career, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and earning the honour of Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO), followed by a distinguished legal career. Mr Isaachsen was President of ALC 1962-65, then Vice-President for 14 years until 1979. He was elected as a Fellow of the ALC in 1994. He lived in South Australia and died in 2009, aged 97 years.
The trophy will be presented to Tom in 2017, date and venue to be advised.
