5. Alex Browne

DOB9th August 1992

After the difficulty of 2016, former Essendon player Alex Browne has already signalled his main intention of “enjoying football again” at the Northern Blues. Browne will be an asset all over the park for the Blues, coupling his versatile style of play with his leadership on and off the field. His debut will be almost two years in the making after signing for the club late in 2015.

Former clubs: Oakleigh Chargers, Essendon (AFL)
