JACK Crisp has won his first E.W. Copeland Trophy after being named Collingwood's 2021 club champion on Friday night
Crisp made the most of a move further up the ground this season to poll 90 votes and top the count for the first time after finishing third in the past two years.
Defender Brayden Maynard (70 votes) was second while Scott Pendlebury (67 votes) finished in third-place despite missing the final four matches. The Pies' captain has now finished in the top-three of the Copeland Trophy in 13 of the last 16 seasons.
The 27-year-old Crisp polled in 17 of his 22 matches and enjoyed a career-best season for disposals (ave 27), contested ball (9.1) and rebounds (3.8).
Crisp has played 163 consecutive games, the most for any active player in the League.
Rounding out the top five were forwards Jordan De Goey (66) and Steele Sidebottom (59).
Darcy Moore was an early challenger for the award after polling in nine of the 13 matches he played before a knee injury ended his season. The intercepting defender held on to finish seventh.
SEASON REVIEWS How did your club fare?

The E.W. Copeland Trophy is decided by five members of the coaching panel each awarding up to 22 votes for each game (there is no minimum). Coaches vote each round and award players one vote if they played their role, two votes for a more significant contribution, and three votes for high-end games. The player then gets an average score for each game.
