Welcome back to the Sharks Tom Joyce

East Fremantle would like to announce the return of Tom Joyce to the club.  Joyce has signed for the next 2 seasons. 

Originally from the Melville JFC, Tom has spent the past 3 seasons at the Brisbane Lions. Drafted at the end of 2018 with pick 40, Tom had an interrupted time at Brisbane where injuries and limited opportunity curtailed his progress. 

Football Manager, Brad Dodd, gave us his insight on the new arrival.

“Tom is an excellent addition to our midfield. He is very good around stoppages and his exceptional hands should compliment our strong midfield group. Tom is a great kid, who is driven, works hard and we’re looking forward to him joining the squad when pre-season starts.”

Joyce has followed the progress of the Sharks during his time away and is excited by what he’s seen. 

“I’ve kept an eye on the Sharks the past few years and like what they’re building, the growth they’ve shown on and off the field and I’m looking forward to playing my part in creating future success.”

Joyce is excited to slide into a strong midfield group and believes he can add to the group. 

“The focus from Bill has been to play to my strengths as a player around the ball and I’m looking forward to working with the current midfield group under Craig Smoker. My strength are my hands and stoppage work and I build my game around those skills.”

Tom will join the rest of his team mates when training starts on Monday the 29th of November.
