2014 Brownlow medalist Matt Priddis’ famous No. 11 will be back in action next season for the Eagles, with star recruit Tim Kelly taking on the guernsey number for the 2020 season.

The No. 11 has not been worn for the last couple of years after Priddis played the majority of his 240 games in the number.

Priddis and two-time premiership star Ashley McIntosh have seen the most success in the No. 11 jumper, and Kelly will look to continue on the tradition after being given the number upon his arrival from Geelong in the off-season.

“It will be great to see the No.11 back out there after a couple of years,” Priddis told the club’s website.

“Like all West Coast fans I’m super excited to have Tim Kelly at the club and it’s awesome he will be wearing No.11.

“It’ll be good to see some pace in the jumper.”

Tasmanian rookie Mitch O’Neill has been given Priddis’ less famous No. 45 guernsey for the 2020 season, while Callum Jamieson, the ruckman who the Eagles took with their first selection in the draft last week, will take on the No. 40.

West Perth speedster Ben Johnson and Claremont livewire Anthony Treacy have also received No. 38 and No. 43 respectively.

2018 premiership winner Chris Masten’s vacated No. 7 has not been allocated.
