North Albury and Howlong export Anthony Miles has been named Richmond’s best and fairest VFL player.
Miles was presented the Guinane Medal at the club’s Jack Dyer Medal function this week.
He polled 64 votes after a standout season at VFL level, averaging a tick under 27 disposals and five tackles per game.
Miles played 14 games and featured in the best players on 12 occasions, along with five senior appearances.
“At the start of the year I didn’t set out to play as much VFL footy, but it’s been an enjoyable year,” Miles said.
“It’s an easy transition coming back from AFL and he (VFL coach Craig McRae) makes it an enjoyable place to be.
“The connection the whole group has had amongst each other and the support of the AFL guys for the VFL program speaks volumes of how far the club has come.”
Miles is out of contract next season and may be targeted by rival AFL clubs in the upcoming trade period.
