BRYCE CROSSLEY WINS JB MEDAL FOR RESERVES BEST & FAIREST

Andrew Thomson

Consistent centreman Bryce Crossley has won the Western Magpies Reserves Best and Fairest Award, the JB Medal.

Crossley won narrowly from 200 gamer Gabe McKinnon as both were the standout performers throughout the Reserves season. 

The JB Medal is named after Life Member and long serving club trainer and player confidante John Burkill.

Crossley polled 64 votes to McKinnon's 58, with youngster Riley Easton underlining his potential with a third place on 53 votes. Next were  Matt Hockley 51, up a coming youngster Matt Mazarolle 48, Brodie Easton 46 and Matt Green 45.  

Crossley won plenty of the ball as he tracks it well, has good decision making ability and usually finds a target with accurate disposal. He is also an on and off field leader of the team.

McKinnon had a standout year across half back to be a key defender who worked hard all season.

Riley Easton only played about half the matches so his effort to finish third was outstanding. His speed and tackling pressure were a highlight and he is a tough customer for his size. 

His brother Brodie Easton was awarded the Best Team Player Award for a consistent season as well as always striving hard in every match and he will push for regular senior selection next year. Matt Mazarolle won most Consistent Player as he got better and better as the season progressed and will be also in the Senior mix next season. 

James Page was awarded the Coach's Trophy for his continual improvement throughout the season and willingness to listen and learn in his first year in AFL football.
