‘Gullie boys get amongst the votes

     Matthew Kennedy

Former Collingullie-Glenfield Park and GWS Giants team-mates Matthew Kennedy and Harry Perryman (Giants) both received votes for this round in this year’s Carey Bunton Medal for the best player from NSW in the AFL based on voting in the AFL Coaches Association Award.

Now playing for Carlton, Kennedy scored seven votes for his outstanding performance in the Blues convincing win over Collingwood at Marvel Stadium while Perryman polled three votes in the Giants loss to the Sydney Swans on the Gold Coast.

Jacob Hopper retains the lead in the award with forty-eight votes, ten votes clear of Adelaide forward Taylor Walker, and dashing Swans mid-fielder Callum Mills, who sensationally missed the win over the Giants due to a Covoid scare.
