Jeremy McGovern

  • Junior Clubs: North Albany
  • Debut: Round 6, 2014
  • Recruited from: Claremont
  • Brownlow Votes: 13

McGovern was something of a late bloomer, making his senior debut for West Coast midway through the 2014 season aged 22 but he’s been a key fixture in the club’s line-up ever since.

He was named as a defender in the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 All-Australian teams enhancing himself as one of the key one-on-one defender and intercept markers in the league.

McGovern’s efforts to get up for the grand final under serious duress will go down in West Coast folklore.
