Fremantle have named an unchanged leadership group for the 2024 season, seeing key defender Alex Pearce remain in the role as captain for a second year.

Pearce was elected as the 10th captain of the club after club great Nat Fyfe stood down from the role at the cessation of the 2022 season, with Pearce voted in as the club's newest skipper.

A player and coaching group vote for 2024 has seen Pearce backed in for a second year, while his supporting cast will also remain the same for the second successive season.

“I'm incredibly proud and humbled to lead not only the playing group, but this Club that I love so much,” Pearce said in a club statement. “Last year had its challenges.

“I learnt a lot in the role, going through those ups and downs in the tougher period made me feel more comfortable in my role as captain.

“I feel very settled and excited for what this year has to offer.

“I'm really excited as to what we can achieve this year and to see how strong and how intense the pre-season has been, I am really excited for next year.”

Pearce will be supported by vice-captains Caleb Serong and Andrew Brayshaw as well as fellow leadership group members Sam Switkowski, Jaeger O'Meara and Hayden Young.

Pearce led the Dockers in all 23 games this year, with the Western Australian club amassing just the 10 wins in what was a disappointing season for Fremantle.

His election as captain saw Pearce become the first Aboriginal player to lead the Dockers and the eighth player in AFL history to be captain of a club.

Fremantle's 2024 campaign is set to commence at Optus Stadium against Brisbane on Sunday, March 17, which will follow pre-season matches against Port Adelaide and West Coast from late February.
