HAIDEN Schloithe has capped off a stellar 2017, winning South Fremantle Football Club’s WJ Hughes Medal.

It is the second time the 24-year-old has taken out the club best and fairest accolade, also picking it up in 2014, and it comes after winning the Sandover Medal and being named in the WAFL team of the year.

Schloithe finished ahead of Tim Kelly and Dylan Main in the medal count after taking out the Player of the Finals and S&D Jewellery Award for Outstanding Performance earlier that night.

Blaine Johnson won the John Gerovich Trophy as leading goalkicker while Matthew Parker won the Best First Year Player award.

Jarrod Parry won the Roy McGuinness Medal for being the reserves best and fairest ahead of Jake Florenca and Josh Collard, while Glenn Byron did the same for the colts, beating out Matthew Ward and Bruno Faulkner.
