Marcus Bontempelli has become the youngest player in Western Bulldogs history to be a dual Charles Sutton Medal winner.

The star onballer and occasional forward secured consecutive club best-and-fairest awards last week at the age of 21.

He eclipsed seven-time club champion Scott West, who won his second best-and-fairest as a 23-year-old in 1997.

In a thrilling vote count, Bontempelli took out the top honour with 185 votes, just one ahead of smooth-moving half-back flanker Jason Johannisen, who finished with 184, with Jack Macrae third on 155.

Other award winners were Lewis Young (best first-year player), Bailey Dale (most improved), Caleb Daniel (best team player), Zaine Cordy (domestique of the year and most courageous), Nick Jamieson (VFL best and fairest) and Ellie Blackburn and Emma Kearney (tied AFLW best and fairest).
