GRAND PRIZE: Flynn Rowbottom with his AFL grand final ticket.

BENDIGO'S Flynn Rowbottom isn't old enough yet to win an AFL premiership medal.

But in the meantime, he'll enjoy the thrill of presenting one of this year's premiership players their medal on grand final day at the MCG next month.

Flynn was selected as the round 20 nominee for the 2014 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Year Award.

The eight-year-old, who does Auskick at Marong and also plays for the Panthers' under-9s, was presented with his award live on Channel Seven at half-time of last Friday night's MCG game between his favourite team, Richmond, and Essendon.

As part of his prize, Flynn will be part of the grand final parade, play on the MCG on grand final day on September 27 and present a premiership medal to one of the winning players.
