FORMER Bendigo Pioneers star Marty Hore has been named in the VFL Team of the Year for the second straight season.
The 22-year-old enjoyed another superb season with Collingwood’s VFL team and was again named in the back pocket.
He averaged 21 disposals at 81 per cent efficiency, seven marks and six rebound 50s in his 17 games.
Like last year, his VFL Team of the Year selection came in the same week younger brother Brady played in a winning Heathcote District Football Netball League grand final with Leitchville-Gunbower.
The Bombers defeated North Bendigo in a thriller by nine points, with Hore among the best players in the back-to-back flag triumph.
A former Bendigo Pioneers star, Marty Hore was runner-up behind Lachlan Tardrew in the club’s 2015 best and fairest award.
His 2018 season was his third with Collingwood.
The Team of the Year was unveiled on the same night Richmond’s Anthony Miles and Willamstown’s Michael Gibbons were named joint-winners of the 2018 J.J. Liston Trophy.
