Jack Clarke Medal: West Perth captain Kane Bevan rewarded for consistent WAFL colts campaign

West Perth colts captain Kane Bevan has been rewarded for his consistent WAFL colts campaign by winning the Jack Clarke Medal as the competition’s fairest-and-best player.

No player averaged more than the big-bodied midfielder’s 135 ranking points per game during the home-and-away season, earning him a State draft combine invitation.

His award was all the more impressive considering he only played 12 of a possible 16 games for the minor premiers because of WA under-18s duties, finishing with 21 votes.

The 18-year-old, who stands tall at 192cm has made a smooth transition from a key defender to an inside midfielder.

He averaged 25 disposals and a competition-high 14 contested possessions and seven clearances despite getting injured four minutes into one game.

Bevan’s coach Ryan Lasscock also didn’t go home empty-handed, winning the JJ Leonard Medal as coach of the year across all grades after leading his team to the minor premiership and a grand final against Peel Thunder at Leederville Oval on Saturday.

Swan Districts ball magnet Max Chipper won the Prendergast Medal as the reserves’ best player.
