The Fremantle Dockers’ all times games, disposals, tackles and clearances record holder has announced to his teammates this morning he will retire at the end of the 2022 season.
The Dockers shared the news on their website this morning, his career coming to a close after 19 years at the club, having played 371 games so far.
“I’m incredibly proud, I’ve been living my dream for 19 years now and I’ve loved every bit of it,” an emotional Mundy said.
“Not all of it has been easy, there’s been quite a few, really hard and emotional bits to it, but I’ve been able to grow as a person and as a player throughout my time at Fremantle and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Mundy debuted for Fremantle in round six, 2005, and is currently 10th on the all-times games played list in AFL/VFL history, and will likely move into ninth by the end of the season.
I’m really proud of the person I’ve been able to develop into, the family I’ve been able to create, and my role within the football club…
“I feel I’ve grown from a skinny full back who didn’t want to talk to anyone, to being a part of the leadership group for a number of years now.”
Executive General Manager of Football Peter Bell said any Fremantle success can be attributed to Mundy’s impact on club culture: “Dave has been a major part of where we are as a Club and where we are headed…
“He’s been a big part of the group that we have now. He’s a big part of why we’re very confident for the remainder of this year and the future.”
Fremantle will honour Mundy’s career at the Round 22 RAC Derby – Fremantle’s final home game of the season before the finals.
