Phillip Island’s Sam Docherty has won the prestigious Best and Fairest Award for the
Carlton Football Club.
The Docherty family were out in force at a gala evening on Friday night at the Crown
Palladium, and sat through an exciting vote count to see Sam emerge victorious in just
his third year at Carlton.
The 22 year old Phillip Islander came up through the ranks of the Phillip Island Foot-
ball Club, where his late father Eddie was a premiership player, coach and life member.
In addition to being named Best and Fairest at Carlton, he also took out the Most Im-
proved Award at the Carlton presentations.
Celebrations went on long into the night with his proud mum Annabel and brother
Josh (pictured with Sam) on hand at Crown Palladium to share in the excitement of his
10 ten vote win.
The Dochertys’ phones have not stopped ringing since Friday night, with all of Phillip
Island celebrating Sam’s great achievement.
Sam began with the local club as an Auskick player, progressing through junior and
senior ranks until he was drafted by Brisbane while he was doing his VCE.
He returned to Victoria to play with Carlton at the end of 2013.
