DUAL Brownlow medallist Nat Fyfe has signed off on another stellar individual season by claiming Fremantle's club champion award for the third time.
In a runaway result, Fyfe polled 272 votes, well clear of Michael Walters (238) and wantaway star Bradley Hill (207).
Ever-reliable veteran David Mundy (186) was fourth, ahead of uncontracted wingman Ed Langdon (155), who is expected to return to Victoria.

Defenders Luke Ryan and Joel Hamling came in next, with recruit Rory Lobb, plus emerging duo Andy Brayshaw and Darcy Tucker finishing top 10 for the first time.
But it was Fyfe's night, and the superstar's first Doig Medal triumph since he claimed back-to-back best and fairests in 2014.
Remarkably, the last time Fyfe won the Brownlow in 2015 he only finished fourth in the club champion award, behind Aaron Sandilands, David Mundy and Stephen Hill.
There was no danger of finishing outside the podium places this season, and the 28-year-old joined current football manager Peter Bell as a three-time winner.
Only Matthew Pavlich (six) has won more Doig Medals and if Fyfe isn't already ahead of the legendary former skipper as Fremantle's greatest player, he is closing the gap fast.
He averaged a career-high 29.2 disposals per game this year and kicked 16 goals, with his 33 Brownlow votes – including 16 in losses – illustrating his consistency.
Senior coach Ross Lyon and four other members of the Fremantle coaching staff were involved in the Doig Medal voting process, with each coach allocating up to five votes per player per round.
Fyfe, who was named the Virgin Australia AFL All Australian captain this season, was also recognised by his peers with the Players' Award for best displaying the values set by the group at the start of 2019.
Walters' runner-up placing was his best finish after previously coming third in 2016.
The electric mid-forward relished an expanded onball role following Lachie Neale's departure and was the only player to be awarded a maximum 25 votes in a game, for his six-goal, 25-disposal masterclass against Port Adelaide in round 13.
Walters, who played his 150th match in round 22, and former president Steve Harris also became Freo's 27th and 28th life members at the gala event on Saturday night.
One of the biggest receptions was reserved for retiring great Sandilands, who took home his third Best Clubman award.
Small forward Sam Switkowski received the Beacon Award as best emerging young player, under similar eligibility criteria to the NAB AFL Rising Star.
Boxing and fitness guru Gary Ingraham was bestowed with the Con Regan Medal for his work with the AFL and AFLW programs since 1998.
Recipients of the Con Regan Medal are considered outstanding individuals, whose contributions to the club demonstrate leadership and vision widely acknowledged in the greater football community.
Celebrating their 25th year in existence, the Dockers also recognised Gary Antulov, Ben Marks, Ivo Capelinha, John Nykyforak, Rod Yin, Colin Ciantar, June MacDonald, Maria Giglia and Keith Carmody for services to the club.
