Railways captain Bodhi Stubber is the leader of the coaches player of the year gong heading into the final six rounds of the Great Southern Football League season.

The Tigers defender has enjoyed a stellar season thus far and polled four votes in his side’s win over Denmark-Walpole in round nine to take the lead from his younger brother Logan.

Just four votes separate the first four players on the leaderboard with voting to go silent in the final three rounds of the regular season.

Bodhi Stubber led by a single vote over Michael McGlade after five rounds and McGlade is one of six players who have more than 30 votes to their name.

In the Tigers win over Royals in round seven Bodhi Stubber polled a perfect 10 to surge clear at the top of the standings.

Heading into round 10 this weekend he leads with 43 votes, one ahead of midfielder Logan Stubber.

Stand-out Albany Sharks midfielder Cameron Jones is right in the mix and equal third with 39 votes, the same amount as early leader and Denmark-Walpole speedster Jayden Woods.

Cameron Allison is fifth with 36 votes after he collected seven in the Lions win over North Albany last round.

His teammate McGlade is next with 34.

The only other players to have polled more than 20 votes are Jayden Scott (Railways), Jacob Crowe (North Albany) David Parker (Royals) and Brayden Parker (Royals).

Brayden Parker shot up the leaderboard after a perfect 10 in round nine a fortnight ago. At the end of each home and away match, league coaches provide their votes in a 5-4-3-2-1 system.

Voting is done considering players from both teams, and five votes is the maximum a player can receive from each coach.
