J.J Joyce Trophy - Jack Crisp

Copeland: JJ Joyce Trophy Watch the winner of the JJ Joyce Trophy for the player that finished third in the best-and-fairest during the E.W. Copeland Trophy Dinner at Crown Palladium
Jack Crisp polled 113 votes to record a top three finish in Friday night's Copeland Trophy.

When he arrived at Collingwood as ‘the steak knives’ of the Dayne Beams deal with Brisbane, few expected to see 21-year-old Jack Crisp reach the immediate heights he has in 2015.

Not only did Crisp find a place in the Magpies midfield from the start, but he was quick to have an impact.

16 goals in his debut season at the club showed his versatility to be not only a hard-hitting onballer, but also a classy finisher on the outside. 

A Collingwood side wasn’t complete without Crisp in it in 2015. Along with fellow recruit Travis Varcoe, captain Scott Pendlebury and defender Tom Langdon, Crisp played all 22 games as he settled into life at the Holden Centre.

He averaged 22 disposals per game, including a career-high 31 touches against West Coast in round 16 and against the Cats in round 22.  

After sitting alongside elder statesmen Pendlebury and Dane Swan at this year’s Brownlow Medal, the 21-year-old midfielder appears set to be a fixture in the black and white for years to come.
