Honours at the Fremantle Dockers
Recently we sponsored the AFL Fremantle Dockers Past Player History and Honour boards. The boards celebrate every player to represent the club since 1995 including leading goal kickers, coaches, captains, best and fairest winners and AFL rising stars. The boards are proudly displayed in the reception area at the Docker’s new football club in Cockburn.
Brad Wira, one of our Private Client Advisers and an ex-Fremantle player said, “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to give back to the club. We are really passionate about improving the lives of AFL players from a financial perspective and being able to support players during their careers and assisting them in leaving the game in a better financial position than when they entered it."
