Former West Coast Eagle's forward Jarrod Cameron will take a break from AFL footy and play for the Swans District football club next year.

The brother of Brisbane star Charlie Cameron told the West Coast Eagles he would not be playing for the club next season due to ongoing injury battles despite being contracted until the end of 2022.

Cameron makes the move after a disappointing season that saw the speedy midfielder endure persistent injuries and not play a single game at senior level in 2021.

He was ruled out in June with a season-ending syndesmosis injury and was placed on the Eagle's inactive list. This comes as a blow for Cameron as his 2020 season saw the 21-year-old only manage 5 games at senior level whilst also dealing with osteitis pubis.

Cameron played junior footy with the Swans District Football Club and will return to his boyhood club after parting ways with the Eagles.

The speedy forward will remain in WA playing in the West Australian second-tier competition (WAFL) and is expected to play out next year before making a push to return to theĀ  AFL in 2023.

Cameron was an exciting prospect for the Eagles back in 2018 when he was picked up by West Coast at pick 39 in the NAB AFL Draft.

He debuted as a 19-year old in 2019 and played seven games that year, four consecutively which led to a two-year contract extension with the Eagles.

Cameron is known for his speedy bursts and impressive pressure on the mid-field especially inside attacking 50. The small forward booted 13 goals across 12 AFL games and is likely to become a strong asset for The Swans District Football Club next year.
