Spriggs was a narrow winner polling 30 votes, in one of the closest vote counts for the Borough in recent times.  John Baird finished runner up with 28, while third place was split between Sam Plemming and Ryan 'Shooter' McMahon. on 24 apiece.

In the Reserves count, ball-magnet Sam Dwyer, already awarded the A. Todd medal for the VFL Reserves best and fairest, collected Port's award, scoring 57 votes.

Marcus Carroll (33 votes), and Matthew Pearce (29) collected the 2nd and 3rd  runner up prizes respectively.

The prestigious Norm Goss Medal was awarded to Rhys Bloomfield.

On a sadder note, Captain Chris Obst announced his retirement on the night, thanking everyone involved during his time at the club.  Chris Obst came to the club during the Swans alignment and remained on with the club when delisted by Sydney at the end of 2002.
