The Morrish Medal is an Australian rules football award.
Formerly awarded to the best and fairest player in the VFL Under 19 competition (known as the Thirds prior to 1959), since 1992 the award has been given to the best player in the Victorian TAC Cup Under 18 competition.
The Morrish Medal was named in honour of Tom Morrish, a long-serving treasurer (1921–1967) of the VFL Reserve Grade. Tom was a member of the VFL Umpires Appointment Board from 1937 to 1964. He was previously a Collingwood delegate in the second eighteen league and also became a Geelong delegate in the second eighteen committee in 1937.
The award is voted by the field umpires in a 3–2–1 format at the conclusion of each match as is used in the AFL's Brownlow Medal.
