James Harmes

In 2019 James continued to build his reputation as a key member of the Melbourne midfield. James’s skills have elevated him to an elite level and he secured his second consecutive top-five finish in the Best and Fairest finishing 4th in last year’s Best and Fairest following his 3rd place in 2018. Congratulation James!

James placed fourth in the Club Champion award with 319 votes to win the Ivor Warne-Smith Memorial Trophy.  James had another consistent year playing all 22 games, averaging 24 disposals and played a valuable role often negating one of the opposition’s most damaging players.

James also claimed the Coaches Award winning the Norm Smith Memorial Trophy. This award is presented to the player who best represents the qualities of work ethic and preparation, with Harmes a fitting recipient. The hard-at-it midfielder is as committed as they come, working hard on the training track and behind the scenes to best position himself to perform on game day.

James was also awarded the Ian Ridley Memorial Trophy in recognition for his ongoing work in the community, The Club Ambassador Award acknowledges Harmes for going above and beyond in the community, and his loving relationship with No.1 fan Jon played a major part in his nomination.

Jon had the honour of presenting his favourite player with the award, as the pair shared a heart-warming moment on stage.
