SEN | Fremantle great David Mundy is set to suit up for the Seymour Lions in the Goulburn Valley Football League (GVL) in 2024.
Mundy retired from AFL footy at the end of the 2022 season, and almost signed for Seymour then, but has since committed to the club.
The 38-year-old Seymour product last played for the Lions back when he was 16 and will return to his former club for multiple games across the course of next season.
Seymour coach Ben Davey says Freo’s games record holder of 376 AFL matches has been firmly behind the idea.
“It’s a great recruit, it’s brilliant,” Davey said on SEN Breakfast.
“It’s been moving along for a little while. It almost happened last year but he had a few too many commitments, but he was very keen to come and play at his local club.
“He’s been brilliant, really. It hasn’t been a lot of recruiting by me, he’s been driving it pretty much, so it’s been great.”
Davey says there has already been plenty of local interest in Mundy, who kicked six goals in his country footy return for Carngham-Linton as part of the Carlton Draft series last season.
