Cats young gun Gryan Miers has been rewarded for his record breaking season, finishing in third place with 93 votes in the 'Carji' Greeves medal count.

Miers was electric up forward this season, dishing off 41 goal assists across 23 games to break Jason Akermanis’ all time record which had stood for nearly two decades.

The premiership Cat also averaged a career high 19 disposals and three tackles per game, pushing forward to hit the scoreboard himself with seven majors across the year.

Miers was recognised by the coaches for his superb season, polling in 16 games during the Cats best and fairest including a perfect 10 votes for his round 21 performance against Port Adelaide.


Geelong assistant coach, Nigel Lappin spoke about Miers’ commitment to his game which helped him to flourish throughout the 2023 season.

“Gryan has an amazing attitude,” Lappin said. 

“He loves learning, teaching, sharing, and challenging himself to improve. 

"He is intrinsically motivated, someone who drives standards with work rate and enjoyment.

"He is a pleasure to work with and play alongside, with much growth left to come.” 

Carji Greeves Medal Highlights

Miers set career highs in a number of different categories this year, including his 32 disposal performance against North Melbourne and the nine inside 50 entries in the clash with West Coast. 

The crafty small forward was rewarded for his play during the season with a three year contract extension, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2026. 

Cats general manager of football, Andrew Mackie spoke earlier in the year on the positive impact Miers has had on the club in his first five seasons. 

“Gryan has proven to be a very important player in our attacking half of the ground, he is a selfless footballer and a player who creates plenty of scoring opportunities,” Mackie said. 

“We are very pleased that he will be with us for at least the next three years. 

"Gryan is part of a very exciting, hard-working, and talented group of young players coming through our AFL program.” 

Miers finished third in the Carji Greeves medal behind winner Tom Stewart, and Tom Atkins who took out second place.
