Western Bulldogs midfielder Naomi Ferres has been awarded the Club’s inaugural VFL Women’s Best and Fairest award, tonight at the Western Bulldogs VFLW presentation night.

Polling votes in all of her seven appearances, Ferres finished the season on 76 total votes, followed by midfielder Ashleigh Guest (60) and defender Libby Birch (55).

Players were awarded 1-5 votes from all four coaches, with 20 votes the maximum a player could receive per round.

Ferres’ impressive Round Nine performance against Melbourne University saw her receive 15 out of a possible 20 votes, before an ankle injury prematurely ended her 2018 VFLW campaign in Round 11.

Third-placed Libby Birch also received the Most Consistent award, while runner-up Ashleigh Guest was recognised by her teammates as the Most Valuable Player.

Other award winners on the night included Nicole McMahon for Best First-year Player and Tayla Dinuccio for Most Improved.
