Perspective comes with Life Membership for Fyfe

Nat Fyfe is presented with Life Membership Nat Fyfe is awarded Life Membership of the club at the 2018 Doig Medal.

Nat Fyfe says he’s gained an enhanced understanding of the Fremantle Football Club's history after being awarded Life Membership on Saturday at the Doig Medal Presentation Dinner at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Fyfe was welcomed into the group of 26 on Friday at a lunch with his fellow life members ahead of Saturday night’s presentation.

The lunch included the likes of former greats Matthew Pavlich, Peter Bell, Troy Cook, Shaun McManus and Michael Johnson as well as current players Aaron Sandilands, David Mundy and Stephen Hill.

“Life membership is incredibly humbling,” Fyfe said at the presentation.

“We had an opportunity for all the life members to catch up and share some stories about their time at Fremantle and it really started to hit home as to how important this is and how much I’ll cherish this going on.”

Fyfe said the lunch helped him appreciate the long-standing support of the Freo Faithful ahead of the club's 25th year.

“To the Fremantle members and supporters…I feel very passionately about this club and yesterday just reminded me how deep this club runs and the history that we have.

“Thank you for your ongoing support and I look forward to even bigger things in 2019.”
