Fremantle assistant coach Josh Carr has been handed a four-game ban following his raft of quarantine breaches earlier this year.

The Fremantle Football Club was also issued with a $25,000 fine by the AFL, half of which was suspended, after their employee's violation of Western Australia's Covid protocols.

As Carr was stood down by the Dockers for Rounds 21 and 22 of this season before being reinstated for their final contest against St Kilda in Hobart, half of the aforesaid suspension has already been served.

Still, the former Fremantle and Port Adelaide midfielder will be unavailable to perform his game-day duties across the first fortnight of the 2022 season.

These sanctions were handed down after the Fremantle Magistrates Court judged Carr to be guilty of a string of offenses last month and issued him with a $6,000 punishment. 

The 41-year-old was found to have fallen foul of Western Australia's strict Covid measures after the Dockers returned home following their defeat to Sydney on the Gold Coast in Round 19.

Carr was said to have visited several businesses as well as his brother's home when he was meant to be in solitary isolation after the flight from Queensland.

According to an official statement released by the Dockers on Monday, Carr has also agreed to foot the entirety of the $12,500 bill that was issued by AFL House earlier in the week.

The club have confirmed that the latest fine will come out of their soft cap next season.

Fremantle CEO and former Bulldog Simon Garlick stated that although Carr had expressed sorrow for his actions, they ultimately had the ability to bring the game into disrepute.

“The level of cooperation and understanding among all parties during this season and last year is the reason we were able to keep playing,” Garlick said.

“It is not something we take for granted, and nor is the broader obligation the Club and the AFL has to the community to do the right thing.

“Josh has demonstrated clear remorse for his actions, and as a highly valued member of staff, will continue to have the support of the Club.”
