FREMANTLE champion Matthew Pavlich will be inducted into the WA Football Hall of Fame later this month, becoming the fifth figure in the Dockers’ 27-year history to be perceived with the honor.
Broadcasting incredible Dennis Cometti and splendid North Melbourne and Claremont wanderer Jim Krakouer will likewise be drafted at a ceremony at the Sandover Medal on September 28.
Pavlich will join past Fremantle players Peter Bell, Paul Hasleby and Ben Allan, as well as inaugural coach Gerard Neesham, in the WA Football Hall of Fame.
The Dockers’ most prominent player won six Doig Medals as club champion, was named All-Australian on six events and led Fremantle’s goalkicking eight times, captaining the club from 2007 to 2015.
He played 353 games, becoming the first WA-based AFL player to pass the 300-game achievement, and is the Dockers’ leading goalkicker with 700.
Set up in 2004, the WA Football Hall of Fame praises players, coaches, umpires, administrators and media who have made a significant contribution to Australian Football in WA.
