The Doig Medal is the best and fairest award given out to the player considered best and fairest during a season for the Fremantle Football Club in the AFL.

It was named after the legendary Fremantle footballing family, the Doigs, who have had over 17 members play league football for East Fremantle or South Fremantle in the WAFL. The most famous is George Doig who has been inducted in the Australian Football Hall of Fame.[1]

Eight different players won the award between 1995 and 2002 until Peter Bell won his second medal in 2003.[2] Following Bell's third medal in 2004, Matthew Pavlich won four consecutive medals to hold the record of six medals in total.[3] Nat Fyfe became the third player to win multiple Doig medals when he won consecutive medals in 2013 and 2014.[4]
