SIGNING: Tasmanian Pearce Joins Port for 2019
The Borough have locked in another component of their 2019 playing list with the signing of Tasmanian youngster Harrison Pearce.
20-year-old Pearce is a product of the Glenorchy Football Club who has played most of his career as an explosive half-forward flanker.
A badly broken leg in the first round of the 2016 state season ruined his initial draft prospects, but Pearce’s speed and goal smarts have kept him firmly on the radar of AFL recruiters since then, best indicated by his attendance at the 2017 State Combine.
Season 2018 saw Pearce move to Queensland to play for Aspley in the NEAFL, where he managed to boot 14 goals across 10 games, including consecutive hauls of three against the Sydney Swans and four against Redland.
He’s now made another big move to Melbourne to chase his football dream in the VFL, and we’re delighted that he’s chosen the Borough to do so.
Welcome and good luck to ‘Harry’!
