ALEISHA Mugavin started her career in red, white and black and expects to finish it donning the same colours.
The lifelong Koroit player became the latest chapter in the club's illustrious modern history on Saturday, clinching the Hampden league's division two best and fairest.
Mugavin, whose father Desmond and mother Yvonne both featured for the Victoria Park-based outfit, said she was proud to bring the award home to the club.
She praised the club's "supportive" environment.
"It's really good. Everyone is so supportive. If you want to try something new, they'll help you out," Mugavin said.
"That goes for trying a different position as well. If you ask any questions, they're always there to give you feedback on how to improve.
"It's great keeping fit and socially it's great. You get to go to training and then have tea with the girls. I'm not just working and coming home, I'm doing something else."
Mugavin, whose side finished third overall, said she was hopeful it'd get another chance to play finals in 2022 after COVID-19 restrictions forced the cancellation of the 2021 series.
