Snadden becomes a Lion

Friday, December 3, 2021 - 2:16 PM

Jordan Snadden will be strutting his stuff at Leederville Oval from 2022 and beyond as he looks to try and cement his spot in the starting midfield as the Lions look to go back-to-back. 

Originally from the successful Bullcreek-Leeming junior club, Snadden was an AIS-AFL Academy member before being drafted by West Coast with pick 17 of the 2016 rookie draft. He was described as a quick midfielder who played with aggression and used his speed to break away from stoppages. 

Snadden spent the majority of his first season playing for the West Coast aligned East Perth Football Club in the WAFL reserves, managing five senior games including the elimination final, before returning to the reserves side for their run to the Grand Final. Snadden was given a second year on the rookie list, where he played 14 League games for East Perth. 
 
After not being offered a third year as a West Coast Rookie, Jordan returned to his original WAFL Club, East Fremantle in 2018. Snadden played 15 games for East Fremantle in his first year back, finishing just outside the top 10 in the league Best and Fairest. Jordan spent most of the year on the sidelines due to injury in 2019, only managing the one game. 

In the reduced eight-game COVID-affected 2020 season, Jordan was the team's best player over the opening four weeks and was instrumental in the East Freo midfield. Jordan finished fourth in the Club’s Best and Fairest at season end, only three points behind the eventual winner. 

2021 saw Jordan play nine league games and seven reserves games for East Fremantle. Snadden’s best game this season was in their loss against Swan Districts, where he accumulated 19 possessions, seven tackles and four inside-50’s. 

“Jordan is a great young man with leadership qualities and comes to us with a wealth of experience and the ability to play multiple roles. We are looking for Jordan to add some extra pace to our midfield brigade and also penetrate the lines with his racking left foot.” said GM Football Operations, Kristian Dicton. 

The club looks forward to seeing the midfielder in Maroon & Gold in 2022!
