New Fremantle recruit Jordan Clark is excited to play in front of friends and family in Perth after playing 14 games in the past two seasons at Geelong, including three as an unused medical substitute.
Clark was traded to Fremantle for pick no.22 and a swap of future late round picks on the final day of the Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period.
Speaking in his first media appearance as a Fremantle player on Thursday, Clark said he was looking forward to using his pace at Optus Stadium.
"I wouldn't have made this decision if I didn't think it was a good move for me," he said.
"I'm rapt to be back around my family and friends and there's always something to be said about playing footy where you're happy with family and friends.
"I've found over the last year and a bit I was a bit down on confidence at times and I just want to get back to how I was day one and not worry about making errors.
"I like to run and carry and break lines and just take the game on really. That's something I want to get back to and get back to my best."
Clark said he preferred to play across half-back but was also open to a wing role and Fremantle have identified a need for speed in both positions.
He was excited about developing with Freo's core of young players, which contrasts heavily with a mature Geelong team that had recruited heavily in Clark's roles.
"It's a bit of a different demographic of players," the speedster said.
"There's a lot of good players at Geelong and there's been a few better players in that role in front of me the last couple of years.
"It's always going to be tough for a young fella to try and compete with those players who are in their prime."
