FORMER Fremantle Docker Haiden Schloithe won the West Australian Football League’s most prestigious individual honour, the Sandover Medal, last night.

The South Fremantle player polled 52 votes, under the WAGL’s 5-4-3-2-1 system to win by seven from his Bulldogs teammate Tim Kelly.

Subiaco’s Kyal Horsley was third on 39 votes, two ahead of his teammate Leigh Kitchin.

Schloithe had a sterling season for South Fremantle, averaging 28 possessions and kicking 27 goals from his 19 games.

The 24-year-old may not be finished at AFL level either, with Schloithe getting invited to the WA State Combine next month.

Also invited was Subiaco’s Liam Ryan, who finished eighth in the count with 30 votes and took out the Bernie Naylor Medal as the WAFL’s leading goalkicker with 68 for the season.
