Bombers fans could only dream of the player they selected when their side took Zach Merrett, the younger brother of Jackson, with pick 26 in the 2013 national draft. In a season which saw Essendon without a number of their key players in 2016, Merrett simply took his game to another level, leading the way in a young side that battled hard on a weekly basis given their difficult situation. The Sandringham Dragons product was rewarded for his efforts, with a maiden best and fairest award. To cap off his season Merrett was named as the vice-captain for the 22Under22 team. In a year full of hope for Essendon, Merrett will serve as a club delegate for the first time in 2017.
