Fremantle refers second complaint to AFL, as player faces police trouble

Fremantle has confirmed it referred a second complaint to the AFL’s integrity unit.

The Dockers released a statement on Thursday.

Fremantle president Dale Alcock confirmed a person had contacted the club in the past week making claims about a separate matter.

“He subsequently advised the club that he does not wish to take the matter further,” Alcock said.

“Should anyone have an issue with any employee at our club, we will direct them to contact the AFL Integrity Services Unit, who are tasked with investigating any matters of substance and provide them with all information required.

“We will cooperate fully with any investigation that is undertaken as part of this process.”

Coach Ross Lyon hit the headlines last week with Fremantle neither confirming nor denying he’s the official at the centre of a sexual harassment complaint.

An AFL integrity unit inquiry resulted in no sanction being handed down.

Meanwhile, forward Brad Hill is being investigated for breaching a police move-on notice and giving authorities a false name.

He also breached the club’s alcohol policy for injured players.

Hill is currently serving time on the sidelines with a knee injury.

A sanction is yet to be decided.
