PRAHRAN Assumption captain James Musster is the 2017 VAFA Division 2 Hutchinson Medallist after a runaway win in the medal count on Tuesday September 12.

In an astounding domination Musster polled 33 votes, nine times best field, to win by 16 votes from his nearest rivals Matt Harris (Glen Eira) and James Tran (MHSOB).

Musster's breakaway speed and courage stamp him as the premier on baller in the competition. He is also a popular and respected leader off the field and all at Prahran Assumption salute his achievement.

Musster is now a dual VAFA medallist as he won the 2011 Fullerton Medal in Division 3, the last year the Two Blues were premiers. The accolade is well deserved but, after all, it is a team game and now he wants another premiership medallion to share with his teammates.

The Hutchinson medal will be presented at the VAFA awards night on Monday September 18 at Crown.
