The youngest of three AFL playing brothers, Andrew Brayshaw moved to the west after he was selected by Fremantle with the second pick in the 2017 draft.
Brayshaw made his debut in Round One, 2018 against Port Adelaide and went on to play 17 games in his first year before a broken jaw brought his season to an end. He led the Dockers for tackling in 2018, and improved his game in 2019 where he played all 22 games. With such a strong start to his career, Brayshaw raced to his 50th game in Round 12, 2020.
It is no coincidence Brayshaw’s strengths are his tackling, clean disposal, and winning contested ball, given he grew up playing in the backyard with older brothers Angus (Melbourne) and Hamish (West Coast Eagles). His competitive instinct has the midfielder set to be an important cog in the Dockers midfield for years to come.
