Glenorchy’s Clinton French capped off a dream day claiming a premiership medal and the Darrel Baldock Medal as best on ground in the grand final for his four-goal effort in a low-scoring game.
“It was fantastic that we got over the line after the disappointment of last year but we got the chocolates and that is all that matters and it will be a big couple of days – we all worked pretty hard for this,” French said.
“I went up to Benny (Reynolds) and said it was him or me for the medal and we should have cut it in half or whatever and he was fantastic and everyone was fantastic and they all played a role.”
French was the only multiple goalkicker of the grand final kicking one in the first quarter, two in the third and one in the last.
Teammate Ben Reynolds was unlucky not to take home the Baldock Medal after an outstanding game in defence with French pipping him by just one vote.
