Zac Dawson was humbled to receive the Best Clubman award on Saturday night.

Winning the 2017 Best Clubman Award at Saturday night’s Doig Medal is an accolade Zac Dawson will cherish.

The 31-year-old defender retired at the end of season 2017 but played a key role in Peel Thunder’s Grand Final success and was a strong leader among the developing playing group.

“Over the last six years I have really prided myself on building genuine relationships with my teammates,” Dawson said.

“This award really means a lot, as my teammates mean more than anything to me.

“There have been lots of ups and downs over the years, but the culture of the football club has really shone through and the leaders have guided the way.”

“It’s been the best six years of my career, on-field and off-field and I can’t thank you enough for showing me the way and create the footballer that I am." 

Chris Bond, general manager of football and previous club captain presented the award to Dawson and spoke highly of the accolade the defender was receiving.

“It’s a very special award, because the player who wins this award has given a great contribution to this club,” Bond said. 

“It’s not only the leadership group that votes on behalf of the whole playing group, it’s key departments within the football club as well, so it’s really significant.”

Dawson is preparing to move home to Melbourne with his wife, Sheena and their daughter, Scarlett and is looking forward transitioning into the next phase of his life.

“The future is looking pretty exciting, it’s going to be an nice chance to spend a more time with my family.”
