Hill sets new mark
BRADLEY Hill has done what no other Fremantle Docker has done in the past 17 years, taking out the club’s Doig Medal in his first season.
The speedy midfielder, who moved to Fremantle from Hawthorn at the end of 2016, took out the club’s fairest and best award with 158 votes, ahead of Lachie Neale with 135 and captain Nat Fyfe with 132.
He’s the first to win the medal in his first year at the club since Troy Cook in 2000.
In other awards presented on the night, Fyfe received the Players Award, Luke Ryan won the Beacon Award for being the best firstyear player, while the retiring Zac Dawson was named the Best Clubman.
Players Nick Suban and Hayden Ballantyne were named life members, as was former board member Syd Corser.
