Delisted Docker Zac Clarke joins Subiaco for 2018 WAFL season

Delisted Docker Zac Clarke hasn’t given up on getting a second chance in the AFL after signing with WAFL powerhouse Subiaco for 2018.
The athletic ruckman was cut by Fremantle at season’s end after failing to add to his 101 AFL appearances due to a persistent knee injury.
But the 27-year-old, who will his join his new teammates on the training track when the club’s pre-season resumes on January 8, was confident his best footy was still ahead of him.
“The body feels great, the knee has really felt good for about six months now, and I think some of my best footy is about to come,” Clarke told the club website.
“I was pretty disappointed to be delisted and I am keen to have a strong season with Subiaco, show the body is healthy and get a second chance in the AFL.”
Coach Jarrad Schofield said the Lions were “super excited” to sign the experienced big man.
“We are super excited to be able to add a 100-game AFL player, a player of Zac’s calibre and experience to our team for 2018 and we think his experience will be of great benefit to our club,” Schofield said.
“Our midfielders are looking forward to working with Zac and we as a club are very confident that he has plenty of good football ahead, starting with 2018 for the Lions.”
Clarke is the second axed Docker to join Subiaco during the off-season, with local product Josh Deluca returning to the club.
Former Port Adelaide and Melbourne midfielder Ben Newton and ex-West Perth utility Drew Rohde have also signed with the Lions.
