2018, September 18 & 19, West Australian, Story and photos “Second medal raises Bolton’s hopes again ” and Jye’s Sandover boil over” with photo’s of Jye Bolton and Tess Homann and another with Jye laying the paving paver. Jye Bolton has become the WAFL’s most decorated current player while adding a second Sandover Medal to his medal in 2016. He polled 52 votes to upset hot favourite Kyle Horsley by 5 votes. Jye received top votes twice but received 4 votes 4 times. Bolton has now won the Sandover and Simpson medals in the same year for the second time.
Some friendly ribbing made sure Bolton’s second speech was a vast improvement on his speech 2 years ago. Caught unawares his speech 2 years ago was not his finest moment. Bolton is the 14th multiple winner of the Sandover medal in the WAFL.
