Luke Parker named Swans AFL club champion

Oct 6, 2017 - 12:28 PM Sydney Swans AFL vice-captain Luke Parker has been crowned club champion for the second time.

The powerful midfielder, who also won the Bob Skilton Medal in 2014, polled votes in 21 of Sydney's 24 games, finishing with 696.

Star forward and Coleman Medal winner Lance Franklin and rebounding defender Jake Lloyd tied for second on 650, with captain and midfielder Josh Kennedy fourth on 580.

Like his club, Parker wasn't at his best in the early rounds but was prominent in their revival, as they rebounded from a 0-6 start to win 15 of their next 17 games before bowing out in the semi-finals.

He averaged 25 disposals, six tackles, six clearances and four marks a game.

Kennedy won the club's players' player award, while forward-midfielder George Hewett, who finished fifth in the club champion award and played every game, won the most-improved award.
