Marsh helps end derby drought with Siena’s Player of the Day
East Fremantle’s Jonathon Marsh sent a timely reminder to the competition of his star power, producing a heroic performance to earn the Siena’s Player of the Day for round 16.
Marsh produced a virtuoso forward performance in a low scoring tussle with South Fremantle, booting 3.4 from 14 disposals as the Sharks broke their derby drought with a 12 point win.
Marsh kicked a sensational scissor kick goal out of the ruck to inspire a final term comeback, then producing a brilliant run down turn over that set up Alex Montauban moments later as the tide turned Easts way at the Port.
Marsh, who played 26 games of AFL football with Collingwood and St Kilda and is the grandson of East Fremantle champion Ray Sorrell has been a maligned player in recent seasons, his class evident though at his best in a strong Sharks lineup.
Joined by older brother Harry this season at the club, Marsh has kicked 20 goals in 12 matches, helping East Fremantle to second spot on the ladder.
Marsh wins a $100 voucher to spend at station sponsor Siena’s in Leederville, awarded to the player adjudged best afield by the Sport FM commentary team each round.
