Matt’s hat-trick of Mathiesons

NEWTOWN & Chilwell great Matt McMahon has further etched his name into GFL folklore by becoming the first player to win a hat-trick of Mathieson medals.

McMahon, who joins former Barwon and St Mary’s star John Williams as the only three-time winner of the award, was a runaway winner for the second straight year.

He finished on 33 votes, 14 clear of Bell Park’s Lachie Patten on 19, with Leopold ruckman Trent West third on 16.

St Joseph’s co-captain Alex Hickey finished fourth on 15 and West’s Lions’ teammate and pre-count favourite Marcus Thompson rounded out the top five on 14.

When the counting of votes went live at Round 10, McMahon – who polled 32 votes to win by 12 from Nathan Deans in 2018 – already had 17 votes to his name.

GFL: TEAM OF THE YEAR

He led Hickey by two votes, with West (12) and league-leading goalkicker Andrew Boseley (10) the only other players in double figures.

However, Hickey wouldn’t poll again, and West and Boseley would only poll four and three more votes respectively.

McMahon polled three lots of three votes to finish the home-and-away season following minor surgery on his Achilles that would eventually end his season in the finals.

From the 17 games he played, McMahon polled in 13 votes, which included eight best-on-ground performances.
