James Harmes took home three awards at Melbourne’s 2019 Best and Fairest after another strong season.

The bubbly character polled fourth in the award, while also being recognised for his community work, receiving the Ian Ridley Memorial Trophy from his biggest fan, Jon.

After being recruited to the club as a rookie in 2014, the hard-at-it on-baller has come a long way in recent years.

Harmes has developed into a versatile midfielder who can play important defensive roles for his side, averaging 25 disposals and five tackles in 2019.

He’s a durable player and one of the fittest in the team, playing every game for the Dees since Round 9, 2017.
