Anthony Morabito delisted by Fremantle

Fremantle has made another list change, delisting luckless midfielder Anthony Morabito.

After being selected with pick No.4 in the 2009 National Draft, the 24-year-old played all bar one game in his debut season, before suffering three consecutive ACL injuries to his right knee from 2011, ’12 and ’13.

He then returned to the field in 2014, 1,394 days after his last senior appearance, playing three games that year.

Morabito played 14 games for Fremantle’s reserves, Peel, in the WAFL this season, before suffering yet another injury setback, tearing a quad muscle last weekend, which will require surgery.

“Given the nature of injuries and setbacks that he has endured, Anthony has shown incredible resilience and determination to keep pursuing his dream,” general manager of football operations Chris Bond said.

“Unfortunately, we have advised Anthony today that we will not be extending his contract.

“On behalf of the club and all Fremantle members and supporters, we thank Anthony for his contribution to the club on and off the field and wish him all the best for the future.”

Morabito played a total of 26 games for the Dockers.
