Callum Mills has been recognised for his outstanding efforts throughout the season to be crowned as the club's best and fairest for 2022.

The award was held on Thursday night, and a crew of young guns were recognised for their talent and hard work as the top three in the count were all 25 and under.

Chad Warner finished second, polling 606 votes, and James Rowbottom was third polling 554 votes.

Mills won the award with 662 votes and played in all 25 games for the Swans. The 25-year-old averaged 25 disposals and 6 tackles. He also capped the home and away season off with an All-Australian blazer, earning selection in the team for the first time in his career.

Mills said he is honoured to have been crowned the winner for the first time, and he is excited about where the next few years at the club might take him.

“Ever since I came to this football club I have fallen in love with this place, to win this award is very humbling,” Mills said.

“I am super proud to be part of this club. The support the red and white army has shown us the last few years has been incredible.”

The night was also filled with recognition of other swan stars, especially for Warner, who took home two other awards.
