AAP logoAAP 8/09/2016

Star Richmond midfielder Dustin Martin has won his first club best and fairest award after a stellar AFL season.

Martin polled 62 votes to beat Alex Rance, last year's Jack Dyer medallist, by one vote.

Martin also made the All-Australian team last week for the first time and is a Brownlow Medal contender.

Tigers captain Trent Cotchin was third with 51 votes.

Rance, who also earned All-Australian selection, won Richmond's prestigious Fraser Bourke award for the fourth year in a row and the fifth time in his career.

The players vote on the Fraser Bourke award, which goes to the teammate who best upholds their trademark values.
