2018 SUMMARY
Played an impressive 21 games in his return from injury, enduring 672 days on the sidelines due to complications with a broken leg. Pearce wasted no time in reaching his best football, limiting the impact of a number of the game’s best forwards including Charlie Dixon, Joe Daniher, Tom Lynch and Jeremy Cameron early in the season.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Missed the entire 2017 season with a broken leg but progressed with his recovery. The promising key back is expected to make his return to football in 2018.

Played eight games until a fractured tibia in round 9 ended what was building into another promising season for the emerging key defender.


Pearce was a standout among the club’s young brigade in 2015. Debuted in round 6 against Essendon and won the club’s Beacon Award for best young player. Played both forward and back.

The first-year key defender showed enough to suggest he can win a spot in Freo’s backline in the
future. Played the season in the WAFL but was named as an AFL emergency on two occasions.
