Lucas wins second Crichton Medal
Scott Lucas has tonight capped off a remarkable individual season, winning his second Crichton Medal. Lucas won the award after the historic tie with James Hird in 2003, with the centre half forward now joining the Essendon elite to have won the award on multiple occasions.
Monfries rewarded for courage
It is fair to say sometimes Angus Monfries forgets he is only 182 cm tall and 76 kg. He has his teammates, coaches and supporters with their hearts in their mouths every time he dives on the ball. With the way he commits himself to the ball without a hint of hesitation, it is no surprise he is the winner of the 2006 Most Courageous Award.
Johns a star on the rise
Courtney Johns continues to grow in the eyes of Essendon fans as a player of the future. Johns tonight was presented with the Lindsay Griffth Rising Star Award. Lisdsay sponsered the best first year player award for 42 years before sadly passing away earlier this year.
Watson reaps rewards for hard work
Jobe Watson was clearly one of the success stories of season 2006, finishing second in the Crichton Medal and collecting the award as the Most Improved player of the season. Watson played 21 of his 34 games this season and established himself as a part of the Essendon midfield in the long-term.
