AFL club medal hat-trick for Port's Gray

AAP logoAAP 9/09/2016

Robbie Gray has become the first Port Adelaide player in more than 100 years to win three successive best and fairest awards at the AFL club.

He polled 230 votes to claim the 2016 John Cahill Medal ahead of Ollie Wines (206) and Jasper Pittard (190) at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Friday night.

Gray said he was honoured to become the first club player since Harry Phillips (1891-93) to win a hat-trick of medals.

"Certainly its humbling to hear that. I didn't realise until just recently," Gray said.

"This medal means a lot to me and is something that'll give me a lot of pride, especially once my playing days are over, but it doesn't hide the fact its been a disappointing season for the club."

Pittard also took out the Fos Williams Award as best team man and claimed the Coaches Award as the most improved player.
