Four Fremantle recruits have been handed their new numbers at the Dockers, after a busy Free Agency and Trade Period for the club.
The Dockers kicked off the post-season by bringing in Reece Conca from Richmond as a free agent, while they struck deals with Melbourne, GWS and Essendon for Jesse Hogan, Rory Lobb and Travis Colyer respectively.
Conca was handed the number 6 jumper, while Hogan will don the No.11.
Colyer will wear No. 33, while Lobb with keep the same number he wore at the Giants, No. 37.
Fremantle have once again decided not to hand the vacant No. 29 to a new recruit, following club champion Matthew Pavlich’s retirement at the end of the 2016 season.
However, they will dish the number out following the upcoming draft.
“During the past two seasons, we have held off allocating the no.29 to acknowledge Matthew’s outstanding contribution to the Fremantle Football Club,” Fremantle CEO Steve Rosich told fremantlefc.com.au.
“At Matthew’s encouragement, we have decided that it is time to time to see the number 29 once again running around in Fremantle colours and we will look to assign the number to one of our new draftees.
“We will never forget Matthew’s contribution in the no.29 but to see the number on the back of a new player will be another important sign that the club is embarking on a exciting new era.”
