Yeoman’s Alex Baldock gave so little thought to his chances in the Darwin Football Association’s Best and Fairest count that he accepted a late ticket to see his favorite AFL team Essendon in Launceston on Sunday. Imagine his surprise when the East Devonport rookie got a phone call during the game in the first quarter to inform him that he had collected three votes in the last game of the season against Somerset to win the Ewington 2021 medal with 24 votes. The runner-up, young pistol Natone Brayden Chandler, finished with 22 votes, but had some consolation in winning the Petterwood Medal for the most votes for an Under-21 player. Brodie Knight with 20 voices, Darcy Crane of Queenstown with 18 voices and Gary Fitzpatrick of Somerset with 17 voices. The Wells Medal for the Best and Fairest Reserves was much clearer, with South Burnie’s James Jacobson taking the award out of 24 votes. Yolla’s Billy Benson was second with 18 votes, followed by Yeoman’s Ben Philips-Crole with 12 votes.
