SEVERAL CONTENDERS FOR JB MEDAL

SEVERAL CONTENDERS FOR JB MEDAL

Andrew Thomson

There are several contenders for the Western Magpies Reserves Best and Fairest, the JB Medal.

Among the favourites will be 200 game veteran Gabe McKinnon, last year's winner Jadan Morton, consistent ball-winner Bryce Crossley and young half back/midfielder Ben Hooper. 

Gabe McKinnon had an outstanding season across half back and in a side struggling in the early part of the season was a standout, winning plenty of the ball to keep the Pies in many contests. He did not have a bad game all season and a B & F Award after many years of loyal service to the Magpies would be a fitting reward and a very popular result. 

Bryce Crossley is Mr Consistent and he continually racked up big possession numbers in the centre and rarely wasted a possession.

He always worked hard back and forward and was a key player in the Pies late season surge. 

2014 winner Jadan Morton is often underrated  but he is a big  and mobile utility who can play in ruck, in defence and key forward which he did this year, often in the one game. His long left footers are a highlight and he was often among the Pies best players.

Ben Hooper was also among the Pies best players in most matches with plenty of possessions whether on half back or in the midfield. A young player with plenty of ability, he will push for senior selection next year.

Crossley (Firsts) and Morton (injury) both missed several matches so McKinnon will be nominal favourite.
