Midfielder Joel Corey has been voted Geelong's best and fairest and awarded the `Carji' Greeves medal for the second time in his AFL career.

Corey polled 591 votes to win from the high-profile duo of Geelong's 2007 club champion Gary Ablett (538) and last year's Brownlow Medallist Jimmy Bartel (522).

Corey was Geelong's best and fairest in 2005 and is just the second player to win the medal twice in the past 12 years.

The 26-year-old led the AFL with 730 disposals, was third in handballs and fifth in tackles.

He polled votes in 22 of the 25 games he played this season for the Cats, the defending premiers who were last week upset in the grand final by Hawthorn.

Other club awards went to Harry Taylor, who was named the best first year player and Steve Johnson was named the leading Cats goal kicker.

Best clubman went to Tom Harley and Cameron Ling won the Coach's award.
