Tuesday marked one year since the passing of GIANTS AFLW player Jacinda Barclay.
While individuals stopped to celebrate and remember a great friend and teammate in their own respective ways, the 2022 team came together on Wednesday before training for a special ceremony.
Along with the #34 locker that still remains set up for her, a tree was planted in her honour as a permanent mark at the club.
Former player Taylah Davies, who introduced the Jacinda Barclay Fearless Award in 2021, returned to the club to enjoy the moment with her former teammates and pass on the awarding of the weekly recognition.
The award recognises an individual in each game that epitomises the team’s values and plays in a selfless and fearless fashion.
An overall winner of the Fearless Award is awarded at the Gabrielle Trainor Medal, to a player whose teammates believe have shown those traits all year round.
In 2021 the inaugural winner of the Jacinda Barclay Fearless award was Tait Mackrill, who also spoke on Wednesday about her memories of ‘Barcs’ and the legacy she leaves at the club.
Jacinda Barclay, always in our hearts.
