Mayne returns to Freo leadership group
Mayne returns to Freo leadership group

Forward Chris Mayne is back in Fremantle’s leadership group after the most successful season of his AFL career.

The 24-year-old finished runner up in the Dockers’ best and fairest voting last year and was remarkably accurate in front of goals, kicking 39.7.

Mayne was in Fremantle’s leadership group two years ago, but missed out on selection for last season.

“It allowed me to really focus on my game and what was expected of me as a player at this club,” he said in a club statement.

“To be given the opportunity again to step up and drive this club to have success, not based just on the overall outlook but what I can do internally, is an honour.”

Mayne will join captain Matthew Pavlich, Aaron Sandilands, Luke McPharlin, David Mundy, Matt de Boer and Hayden Ballantyne in the leadership group.
