Australian Rules Football player Jeremy Sharp recently joined the Fremantle Dockers as a pre-season supplemental selection after playing 19 VFL games for the Gold Coast Suns in 2023. He did not have any senior playing opportunities in his fourth season at the Suns, despite playing 23 senior games in his first three years with the club. Despite his notable contributions to the VFL side’s premiership win, Sharp fell out of favor at the Suns. This led to him lodging a trade request to play for the Dockers at the end of last season, which was denied. However, 12 months later, he has returned to West Australia to join the Dockers.
In a recent interview, Sharp revealed that Gold Coast Suns coach Damien Hardwick had attempted to convince him to stay at the Suns, but he felt that the call came “nine or 10 months too late.” This suggests that Sharp had already made up his mind to move on from the Suns, and Hardwick’s attempt to convince him to stay was too late.
Sharp’s move to the Dockers represents a fresh start for the young player, who will be looking to make an impact at his new club and secure a spot in the senior team. His switch to the Dockers provides him with a new opportunity to prove himself and further develop his career in the AFL.
The 22-year-old’s trade request to join the Dockers at the end of the previous season was rejected, but his move to the club as a pre-season supplemental selection showcases his determination to secure a new opportunity and pursue his career goals. This demonstrates his commitment to his professional development and his willingness to explore new opportunities in the AFL.
Overall, Jeremy Sharp’s recent move to the Fremantle Dockers represents a significant career development for the young player, as he seeks to establish himself at his new club and make a meaningful contribution to the team. His decision to leave the Gold Coast Suns and join the Dockers highlights his ambition and determination to succeed in the AFL. As he embarks on this new chapter in his career, Sharp will be hoping to make a positive impact at the Dockers and continue his growth as an Australian Rules Football player.
