Awards overview

Doig Medal
The player who has excelled in the 2021 season is acknowledged and presented with the Club’s most prestigious award – the Doig Medal. 

Beacon Award
The Beacon Award has the same criteria to the AFL’s Rising Star award in that players are eligible to win it in their first or second year of AFL football provided they have played 10 games or less in their debut season.

Players’ Trademark Award
This award is voted on by the players. After every game, each player votes for the player that best reflected the values set by the playing group at the start of the season.

Best Clubman Award
The Best Clubman Award is voted on by the coaching staff, leadership group and various Club departments and recognises the player that consistently puts the needs of the team first, willingly accepts responsibility to improve the whole Club environment and lives the values of the playing group.
