The club has issued a statement regarding Harley Bennell.

Injured Fremantle midfielder Harley Bennell met senior club officials on Tuesday to discuss his conduct at Peel’s game in the WAFL on Saturday at Rushton Park.

The meeting included general manager of football operations Chris Bond, senior coach Ross Lyon and CEO Steve Rosich.

Bond said discussion at the meeting focused on the 24-year-old’s conduct since his latest injury setback last month which saw Bennell, who has not played a game in 18 months, ruled out for a further eight to 10 weeks.

“We have an agreed action plan as how to best assist Harley with his personal wellbeing and his return to playing football,” Bond said.

“With respect to football, we have a rehabilitation and training program in place for Harley to return to playing, initially for Peel, in the next five to six weeks.

“Given Harley’s previous commitment to rehabilitation and training in accordance with his program, we are confident that he will give himself the best chance to get back to playing.

“The agreed off-field action plan includes Harley working with an external expert counsellor to assist in dealing with personal issues.

“With regard to his off-field conduct since his injury setback, it has been made clear to Harley what expectations the club and his team mates have and the standards and behaviours that need to be maintained.

“We have also imposed a $10,000 financial sanction on Harley, $5000 of which is suspended for 12 months.”
