Meagan Kiely has capped off a stellar individual VFLW campaign by being named North Melbourne’s inaugural VFLW Best and Fairest winner.
Kiely was one of just two North players to play every game this season, averaging over 150 ranking points per contest, the most of any non-AFLW listed player in the competition, and polled 193 votes.
An elite performer on the field, she ranked first in disposals (24.1) marks (5.3) and kicks (17.9) per game, while also averaging 5.4 tackles and 3.6 clearances per contest.
Her efforts in a North jumper saw her earn a chance to make an impact in the AFLW, as she was selected with the 48th pick in the NAB AFL Women’s Draft by Richmond.
Kiely was also named as the Shinboner of the Year, a player voted award that recognises those who demonstrate and maintain the values of the football club.
Molly Eastman came second with 164 votes, while Sarah Skinner finished third with 163.
Alexia Hamilton and Jess Mourney round out the top five with 159 and 134 votes respectively.
Mourney was also awarded Most Improved Player, while Meg Lawrence was named Clubwoman of the Year.
