Former Fremantle player Ryan Crowley has signed on as one of Essendon’s ‘top-up’ players for the 2016 season.

The 31 year old toured the Club’s facilities today and will begin training with the team tomorrow.

“Whirlwind is one way to put it,” he said.

“It’s been amazing.  I’m super excited to be down here.  It’s a great Club with heaps of history. I can’t wait to get down there and train with the boys.”
