HARD-RUNNING midfielder Liam Picken has added another string to his growing list of accomplishments, snaring the Western Bulldogs best finals player award at its best-and-fairest evening.

The 30-year-old, who cut his teeth with the Hamilton Magpies, also finished fifth in the club’s best-and-fairest.

Picken played a vital role in the Bulldogs premiership victory last weekend – amassing three goals, 25 disposals and four tackles in the victory over Sydney.

Picken is contracted with the Western Bulldogs until the end of 2017.
