The East Fremantle Football Club has announced the signing of one of their own. Jarrad Jansen, after two years at Geelong and the last two at Brisbane, said he wouldn't have it any other way in returning to play with the Sharks.
The 192cm big bodied Bull Creek-Leeming product has played through the midfield and half forward during his time in the AFL system. Jansen played through all of the East Fremantle Development Squads before making his debut for the Colts in 2012.
In 2013 Jansen's early season form earned him a State 18s birth, where at the end of that season he was taken at pick 36 by the Geelong Cats. Whilst learning plenty and playing some good VFL footy, unfortunately he couldn't break into a strong Cats side at AFL level.
After two years at the Cattery, Jansen was then traded to the Lions where in 2016, he made his AFL debut in Round 11 against Carlton. In his two years at Brisbane Jansen played 8 games.
He was an integral part of the Lions NEAFL premiership a couple of weeks ago. An outstanding person, with great character Jansen's return is an exciting one for the 'Old Easts'.
