Chris Dishot Wins Players MVP
In his second year at the Club, Chris Dishot has joined an
illustrious group of players by taking out the Players' MVP
Medal for 2018.
The award, which is separate from the Club's Fairest & Best
award, was instituted in 2006 and involves each League player
casting votes at the end of each game for the best player of the
round. The winner of the award is presented with the Players'
MVP medal, which is kindly donated every year by club legend,
Jim Maldenis. The medal is considered to be a very prestigious
award to win and is held in high regard by all players.
Chris had a quiet start to the season, but a very strong second
half allowed him to take out the award. He polled votes in seven
games, including three best-on-ground performances over four
weeks, to finish the count with 41 votes.
Marlon Johns, who transferred to Gosnells in the latter part of
the season, finished in second place on 40 votes, while last
year's Jack Friend (Colts F&B) Medallist, Kieran Guy, ended the
season with a late flurry of votes to finish in third on 32
votes. Former winner, Adam Edwards, finished fourth on 30 votes,
while young gun, Marcus Lazic, rounded out the top five on 28
Previous winners of the medal include Justin Cunningham (2006),
Leon Berthelsen (2007), Brad Trpchev (2008), Joel Edwards
(2009), Frank Rossi (2010, 2012 and 2013), Adam Edwards (2011),
Rory Muller (2014), Ryan Maldenis (2015), Cameron Grover (2016)
and Brett Dobson (2017).
