Defender Mitch Green claimed his first Railways league fairest and best award in a close count on October 2, despite playing just seven games in the regular season. Green moved to the Tigers in 2018 and has played an important role in the club, reaching two grand finals in the past three seasons. The rebound defender starred in his seven matches this season, polling 93 votes to upstage joint Kleemann Medal winners Kane Shephard and Matt Palfrey. Green finished in the top 10 of the Kleemann Medal despite missing three games and was named in the Great Southern Football League Team of the Year for a third straight season. He narrowly shaded Shephard who finished with 87 votes while Jayden Scott (73 votes), Palfrey (71) and Coen Jackman (55) rounded out the top five. Scott was named the Tigers’ most consistent, captain Bodhi Stubber won the best player in finals gong and other award winners were Henrick Alforque (coaches’ award), Joe Alvin (best team player), Jackman (best under-21 player) and Xavier Brenton-Reed (coaches’ votes). Shephard won the George Stephens Medal for service on and off the field. Henry Alforque claimed the reserves fairest and best award, Jaxon McLean took home the colts’ top honour and Mohit Jaggi was the 16s’ fairest and best player.
