Adelaide forward Tom Lynch has won the Phil Walsh Best Team Man Award for the second year in a row.

The Crows veteran was again recognised for his outstanding character both on and off the field.

Lynch, 30, took home the award after consistently putting the team and Club before himself, while making his teammates better with his team-first mentality.

Lynch featured in 12 games this season due to a toe injury but used his time on the sidelines to guide Adelaide’s young contingent.

The experienced forward ends his time with the Club having played 165 AFL games (including six for St Kilda) and kicked 203 goals.

Adelaide’s Best Team Man award has been presented every year since the Club's inaugural season and recognises the most selfless player who lives and breathes 'team first'.

It was renamed in 2015 to honour late Crows coach Phil Walsh and his ‘team-first’ mantra.
