The Group 10 awards night was held at Bathurst Panthers on Friday, September 6.
Lithgow's own Jimmy Reinhardt and Jake Gale from Workies Wolves brought home some silverware for the cupboard following their performance in the reserve grade competition.
Reinhardt was awarded coach of the year in the Group 10 competition while Gale was announced as reserve grade player of the year.
"I was not expecting it," Reinhardt said.
This season was only the second time that Reinhardt has coached a team. His first coaching stint was with the Lithgow Bears in 2015.
"It's my first time with Workies and I was actually pretty surprised to get the award.
"I was going along [to presentation] for a feed and to have a few beers and show my support because I knew we had a few blokes in the running for awards and then my name was called," he said.
He said he was very thankful and felt he was accepting the award on behalf of the team.
"We've gone the full season undefeated and that comes down to a team effort, the boys are the ones playing the footy and made me look like I can coach," he laughed.
Reinhardt said he'd be interesting in coaching again next season and would like to stay involved with the club.
"I'm definitely interested so we'll see what happens at the next AGM," he said.
He also wanted to thank the club for its support and advice and for running another successful season.
"I've needed plenty of help throughout the year and they've been amazing. I need to thank everyone involved in getting us through the year, everything you do does not go unnoticed, so thank you," he said.
Reinhardt said he was hopeful that his team would take the grand final win this weekend when they take on Bathurst Panthers at Bathurst.
"Our plan is to come in and win, and since we have been undefeated the whole season we don't want to get to the big one and get beat," he said.
"But we will just keep working hard to give us the best shot."
Reinhardt said with the grand final match being played at Bathurst Panthers' home ground, his team could be in trouble.
"They will be hard to beat at home so we are going in fully prepared to play in front of their home crowd which will give them a boost, it just means we have to turn it up," he said.
He said he hoped that some Lithgow residents would be willing to come and show their support.
"It would be really good to have some familiar faces in the crowd."
