Surprised Holmes humbled by Alagich Medal

Adelaide United midfielder, Dylan Holmes, says she was left surprised to win the Dianne Alagich Medal at the 2023 Alagich Vidmar Awards on Tuesday night.

Holmes was a consistent force in the centre of the park for Adrian Stenta’s squad throughout the 2022/23 campaign.

Speaking to media at Coopers Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, Holmes spoke of her feelings after having some time for the recognition to sink-in.

Holmes said:
“It was a really nice surprise to win (the Dianne Alagich Medal).

“I definitely wasn’t expecting it, but it’s a really big honour and I was over the moon.

“Through a tough season, I tried to be as consistent as I possibly could.

“We had a lot of injuries and players were unavailable and my mindset was, every time I stepped onto the field, I wanted to make sure I gave my all and tried to be consistent throughout.

“I’m proud of myself in the way that I went about my business but disappointed on a team level that we couldn’t achieve the goals that we set out for.

“If you ask any of us (players), we’d always prefer a championship over individual awards.

“So I think maybe (winning this award) is a little bit of a silver lining on a personal note, but I think the disappointment of our season is still there.”
