Fremantle have made an early move in day one of the supplementary selection period, adding delisted Sun Jeremy Sharp to their outside running stocks for 2024.

Sharp, 22, played four years at the Gold Coast and was part of their 2023 VFL premiership, but hasn't managed to crack the senior side since 2022.

He broke onto the scene in 2021 with two stellar performances against quality opposition - racking up 30 touches and 10 marks in a loss to the Bulldogs, before 31 possessions and a goal the next week against the Lions, earning his first career Brownlow vote.

He now returns to his home in Fremantle, where two list spots have opened at the Dockers due to long-term injuries to forwards Josh Corbett and Sebit Kuek.

Fremantle Head of Player Personnel David Walls says the club have had eyes on the Western Australian local since 2019.

“We liked him in his draft year. He was a two-time All Australian in the U18s which doesn't happen very often,” said Walls.

“We tracked him pretty closely and he's now spent four years in the system.”

“He has a combination of speed and endurance with good acceleration,” he added.

“His height (187cm) allows him to fold back into defence where he likes to help out and he's good overhead.”

Sharp's signing is the second of the SSP after Melbourne signed Marty Hore on Monday morning.

The 27th pick of the 2019 National Draft will fight for a spot in the Dockers' 23 as clubs return to pre-season training this week.
