Crouch Crows' second-youngest award winner

Oct 6, 2017 - 4:35 PM Midfielder Matt Crouch has become the second-youngest winner of Adelaide's best-and-fairest award after the beaten grand finalists' stellar season.

The 22-year-old (315) was the only player to poll more than 300 votes. Crouch drew level with superstar Rory Sloane in round 11 and streaked clear in the second half the season to finish 62 votes ahead.

Andrew McLeod, who won the award at 21 in 1997, the first of Adelaide's two premiership seasons, donned the gold jacket at a younger age.

Eddie Betts, who finished 10th in the medal standings, won the leading goalkicker gong while Brad Crouch took the Players' Trademark Award.
