Hill sets new mark

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
