Former West Coast Eagles Player, Chris Masten is now officially a Dunsborough Shark after a transfer was approved today, adding to the previous announcement of Pat McGinnity who will also play for the new League team this season.
Masten was picked up by West Coast as pick three in the 2007 National Draft, Masten showed strong leadership in the 2007 Under-18 championships, captaining Western Australia to win the tournament and on an individual level winning All-Australian honours averaging 25 disposals and five clearances across the 3 games. He was also a graduate of the AIS/AFL Academy in 2006.
In a career that will go full circle, he started his career as an East Fremantle Shark, and now in his latter years, a Dunsborough Shark.
Masten played 215 games for West Coast and was part of the famous Premiership team of 2018 who came from behind to beat Collingwood in front of 97,431 fans at the MCG. There won’t be that many fans at the Dunsborough Playing Fields this season, but there is considerable hype around the new team, who play their opening League fixture against Donnybrook on Sunday.
