More youth for Freo Dockers
The Fremantle Dockers have injected more youth to their side following the AFL Draft on Thursday.
Jayden Pitt, Viv Michie and Josh Mellington were all added to the senior list after being picked with selections 20, 44 and 56 respectively.
Jayden Pitt is an 18-year-old from the Geelong Falcons who has an uncanny ability to win the ball, along with blistering speed and precise handballing skills. He can react to the play like a veteran and was an All Australian in the 2010 NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, averaging 18 disposals and kicking eight goals during the carnival..
Viv Michie is also 18 and is from the Oakleigh Chargers. He is a lightning-fast midfielder with a good overhead mark and above average endurance. He represented Vic Metro in the Under 18 Championships for 2010, averaging 16 disposal and two goals.
Seventeen-year-old Josh Mellington, from the Murray Bushrangers, possesses a strong mark and is a long-running player who often finds his way to goal. He kicked 38.16 in 15 matches for the Bushrangers this year and also has an impressive defensive game, tackling strongly inside attacking 50.
The club looks forward to welcoming these talented youngsters to Fremantle Oval early next week.
