SUNS midfielder Jamie Stanton has received six AFL Coaches Association votes for her performance in the Round 4 match against Fremantle.

Stanton continues to be one of the most influential midfielders in the competition and her performance brings her just seven votes shy of cracking the top 10 in the AFLCA Champion Player of the Year award.

The 25-year-old had a game-high 18 disposals and seven clearances on the weekend, to go with an impressive 321 metres gained.

She has been one of the most consistent SUNS through the opening four rounds of the 2021 NAB AFLW Competition.

Fremantle’s Kiara Bowers polled a perfect 10 votes in the match, with the Dockers also having Gabby O’Sullivan (six), Hayler Miller (six) and Roxanne Roux (two) receive votes.

The AFL Coaches Association AFLW Champion Player of the Year is an award voted by the AFLW senior coaches on a 5,4,3,2,1 basis after each home and away game, acknowledging outstanding effort to an individual player in a season.
