Outridge Medal 2015
- Friday, 16 October 2015
The top five place-getters, Phelan, Leigh Kitchin, Clancy Wheeler, Jordan Lockyer & Scott Hancock played every game in 2015 but Phelan’s strong finish separating him from the rest.
The Kingsley product averaged 24 disposals a game and stood as the key extractor for the Lions on the way to premiership 13.
Phelan also added 14 goals in 2015 as he developed a repertoire for a cool head in the forward line.
The club champion title rounds out a big year for Chris Phelan who represented WA for the first time and won his second WAFL premiership a month ago.
Esperance product Clancy Wheeler finished third, halfback Jordan Lockyer fourth and winger Scott Hancock fifth.
Shane Yarran was acknowledged for his impressive season to become the first Subiaco player of indigenous heritage to claim the Austin Robertson Goal-kicking Award with 54. Yarran is expected to attract interest from the AFL in the upcoming draft.
