THE West Australian Football League will honour the 2019 Optus WAFL Premiership Season’s fairest and best player when the Sandover Medal is presented in the River View Room at Optus Stadium on Monday night, September 16.
The Sandover Medal, which has been awarded each season since 1921, will be presented by Ian Sandover, great grandson of the original donor of the medal, Mr Alfred Sandover.
This year, voting has reverted to a 3-2-1 system, with multiple medals to be awarded in the case of a tie. Assuming a sole winner, the 109th Sandover Medal will be presented.
The count will be livestreamed at thewest.com.au and wafl.com.au and broadcast on radio by Sport FM 91.3FM
