CLASSY forward Lachie Dale has joined his brother, Frazer, in winning Myrtleford's best and fairest award.
It is the first time in the Alpine Saints' history that brothers have won the award after Frazer topped the count in 2017.
Dale polled 106 votes to edge out his coach Jake Sharp (103) with ruckman Tom McDonagh finishing a distant third on 72.
"It was a phenomenal effort by Lachie," Sharp said.
"He took his game to another level.
"It was off the back of some serious hard work.
"He worked really hard on his fitness over the summer which helped him get higher up the ground and impact more contests.
"We're really proud as a club to see his growth as a person and footballer this season."
Dale also won the Ovens and Murray's goalkicking award after kicking 54 majors during the home and away series.
"To take out the best and fairest and leading goalkicking is a fair year," Sharp said.
"He's done really well."
Dale led the count for most of the night before Sharp's strong finish put him right in contention.
Myrtleford made this year's preliminary final against eventual premier Lavington and, with towering Greater Western Sydney ruckman Dawson Simpson committing, look well placed to make further inroads next season.
Former Rising Star winner Darcy Chellew polled 90 votes to win the reserve grade best and fairest award by three from Paddy Sullivan.
Talented youngster Josh Muracca edged out teammate Macrus La Spina to take out the thirds.
