SUNS vice-captain Touk Miller has finished runner-up in the 2020 Gold Coast Club Champion.
In one of the closest vote counts in recent years, Miller finished just five votes away from a maiden Club Champion award, and eight votes clear of Jarrod Witts in third place.
It was an extremely consistent season from Miller, evident by his polling in 15 of the SUNS’ 17 games, the most of anyone on the night.
The 24-year-old finished the season with the most disposals of all SUNS, averaging an impressive 20 per game to go with four clearances.
He also rated elite in the competition in tackles, with his 88 for the year (at an average of 5.2 per game) ranking him fifth in the AFL in that stat.
Miller polled 40 votes in the Round 10 match against St Kilda where he recorded 18 disposals, five marks, seven tackles and kicked two goals.
The midfielder has developed his game further this season, adding more offensive flair to his already reliable defensive capabilities.
His ability to play a variety of roles in the midfield sees him rated highly amongst the playing group and coaches.
Miller also claimed the Hostplus Most Professional award and the Players’ Player award – which he shared with David Swallow – to cap off a successful 2020 season.
