Fremantle legend David Mundy has returned to his former club Seymour for the 2024 season.

Mundy was drafted to the Dockers out of the regional Victorian club in 2003 and would go on to play a club record 376 games in purple, retiring in 2022 as an All-Australian and best and fairest winner with Fremantle.

The Seymour native has now returned to the Lions for the next season, with the Goulburn Valley League club announcing the return of the champion ex-Docker on Wednesday night.

"The Seymour Football Netball Club would like to announce the signing of David Mundy for the 2024 GVL football season," a club post read.

"While Dave is a new recruit for next season, it's more of a “welcome back” to the club after a long and successful career with The Fremantle Football Club.

"Dave grew up in Seymour and represented the Seymour Football Netball Club before getting drafted to Western Australia in 2003. The complete player, Dave became an All-Australian representative, Doig Medalist and a Club Captain on his way to a whopping 376 AFL games.

"After a stellar AFL career, we are now very excited to welcome Dave, Sally & the family back to the club in 2024!

"What a great early Christmas present for our club and community. We look forward to welcoming Dave back into our mighty Lions jumper next season."

Mundy returned to local football earlier this year with Carngham Linton as part of the Carlton Draft initiative, where the 38-year-old booted six goals in a heavy win over Beaufort in the Central Highlands Football League in May.

The veteran midfielder also represented Dunsborough in Western Australia's South West Football League against Eaton in June.

Seymour amassed a second-placed finish in 2023, recording 16 wins from 18 games before bowing out of the GVL finals race in week two of the post-season.
