Fos Williams Medallist

The Fos Williams Medal is awarded to the best player on the ground for South Australia in interstate clashes, and previously, in State of Origin matches.

First awarded in 1981, it is named in honour of Port Adelaide great Fos Williams.

A member of the South Australian Football Hall of Fame, Williams represented South Australia on 34 occasions throughout his decorated career.

Captaining the Croweaters from 1954 to 1958, Williams also coached SA from 1955 to 1958, 1960 to 1966 and 1968 to 1969.

He played in six premierships for the Magpies while also coaching his beloved black-and-whites to the ultimate success on nine occasions.
