After an exceptional 2017 campaign, Davey took home the highest honour at the Club’s best-and-fairest. Averaging 19 disposals per game and commanding the Blues’ backline, it came as no surprise when the 22-year-old was crowned the inaugural winner.

Even though a knee injury caused the defender to miss one game, Davey’s dominance still saw her named the 2017 AFLW All-Australian team.
