Fremantle Football Club | Dockers
The Fremantle Football Club (Dockers) is Western Australias second team in the Australian Football League (AFL).
The club is based in Fremantle at the mouth of the Swan River in Western Australia. In 1995 it became the second team from Western Australia to be admitted to the national Australian rules football competition, honouring the rich footballing tradition and history associated with Fremantle.
The rich football heritage in Fremantle dates back to 1885 when the premiership was contested by four clubs - Rovers (predecessor of the Perth Football Club), Victorians, Perth High School and Fremantle (wearing the infamous red and white playing strip).
During the annual AFL heritage round, Fremantle wears a red and white playing uniform which is identical to the guensey worn by the original Fremantle Football Club during their first premiership in 1885 and recognises the rich football heritage of Fremantle.
Fremantle made the Grand Final in 2013 but went down to Hawthorn in a close contest. Fremantle is yet to win an AFL flag.
In 2015, Fremantle star Nat Fyfe created history by becoming the Dockers first Brownlow Medal winner. The Brownlow Medal is awarded to the player judged by the umpires as the fairest and best. Fyfe defied injury, history and Match Review Panel concerns during the season to poll 31 votes.
