Bud Walder Medal

The Bud Walder Medal

 

From season 2014/15 a new voting system was implemented. Voting for the Walder Medal is conducted by all players in the team, immediately after each home-and-away match, with three votes awarded for the player they believed to have been the best on the ground, two votes for the second best player and one vote for the third best player in the game, in their opinion. If two or more players finish tied for first in the vote count, they are joint-winners.
