Adelaide forward Tom Lynch has been awarded the Phil Walsh Best Team Man Award.

In his ninth season at the Crows, Lynch was recognised for his outstanding character both on and off the field.

The 30-year-old constantly puts the team and Club before himself, and makes his teammates better with his adoption of the team-first philosophy.

Lynch missed four games mid-season due to a hamstring injury, but used his time on the sidelines to guide Adelaide’s young contingent.
