4 times a charm for Finch

Josh Finch has become the first player in BFNL history to win 4 Les Ash Medals. Finch has now added to his wins in 2010, 2012 and 2013.

The star midfielder polled 22 votes, four votes clear of Ocean Grove’s James Linton on 18 votes.

Queenscliff’s Justin Maher was a vote further behind in third place on 17 votes, while Torquay ‘s Josh Gray and Geelong Amateur star Baden Dodd tied for fourth on 16.

Earlier in the night, Geelong Amateurs forward Daniel Grose was a runaway winner of the Don Cole Medal, with Drysdale’s Shaun Reyment runner up 5 votes behind. It was a big night for Grose, who also took home the Reserves Goal Kicking award with 42 goals.
