Seb Ross was last night crowned St Kilda’s Best & Fairest for the 2019 season.

The midfielder won his second Trevor Barker Award with 170 votes, ahead of emerging ruckman Rowan Marshall (152) in second and tough nut Jack Steele (151) in third.

Head coach Brett Ratten praised Ross for reclaiming the award he first won in 2017.

“It’s really great to see Seb honoured with his second Trevor Barker Award,” Ratten said.

“He’s shouldered a lot this season, standing in for Jarryn (Geary) as acting captain for most of the year, but took it all in his stride.

“He’s a consummate professional and is always the first to lend a hand to his teammates.

“Seb’s a pillar of our group and thoroughly deserves this accolade.”

Rounding out the top five was Jack Billings (140) and Tim Membrey (136).

Promising youngster Marshall also won the Best Emerging Player Award as well as the Lenny Hayes Players’ Player Award.

Captain Jarryn Geary waon the Robert Harvey Best Clubman Award.
