Nick Liddle takes out 2018 Knuckey Cup

Nick Liddle takes out 2018 Knuckey Cup

Evergreen Panthers midfielder Nick Liddle has taken out the 2018 Knuckey Cup at Saturday night's best and fairest count.

The flame haired Liddle chalked up 127 votes to finish five clear of ruckman Keegan Brooksby (122) and sophomore Panther Abe Davis (114).

It marks the fifth time Liddle has claimed the Panthers best and fairest, having also earned top honours in 2010, '12, '13 and '17.

It further solidifies his legacy amongst South Adelaide's greatest players, with only club legends Jim Deane (six - 1948, '49, '51, '53, '56 and '57) and Peter Darley (seven - 1963, '64, '66, '67, '68, '72 and '73) claiming more best and fairests during their careers.

The ball magnet from Coburg put together yet another stellar season in blue and white, averaging a team-high 25.8 touches per game and kicking 17 goals through his 19 games in 2018. His play was a key factor in seeing the Panthers return to finals action in 2018.

Earlier in the evening Kangaroo Island native Coby Helyar was awarded the J.L. Brown Trophy as the Reserves Best & Fairest, while Danny Juckers was rewarded for a consistent season to take out the Centre of Excellence Under-18s Best & Fairest.
