Former Fremantle Docker Josh Simpson eyes another WAFL comeback

Former first-round draft pick Josh Simpson is eyeing another WAFL comeback.

The ex-Fremantle livewire, who last played in the state league for East Fremantle back in 2016, is in discussions with both Perth and Swan Districts.

The 24-year-old has been in the Great Northern competition for the past two years, winning back-to-back flags in the GNFL for Mullewa and Brigades respectively.

Simpson was taken with pick 17 in the 2012 national draft, Fremantle’s top selection that year, and played two AFL games before being delisted at the end of 2014, despite having a year to run on his contract.

He was involved in controversy during his time at the Dockers when he didn’t show up for a flight to Sydney during the 2014 season when he was named as the team’s travelling emergency.

His last stint in the WAFL at the Sharks also came to a grinding halt when he quit after receiving his second club-imposed suspension within a year for failing to attend a compulsory recovery session.

Perth bolstered its list this week with a trio new signings, including Matt Rogers who returns to the club after a stint at Swan Districts.

Rogers will be joined by former Kangaroo Gordon Narrier, who returns after a season on North Melbourne’s rookie list, and ex-Subiaco defender Chris Bryan.

The Demons are also in the mix for de-listed Fremantle hard nut Brady Grey.
