Brendon Ah Chee
Port Adelaide: 27 AFL games, 17 goals
West Coast: 31 AFL games, 14 goals

Brendon Ah Chee played for the West Coast Eagles and Port Adelaide in the AFL.

An agile midfielder or forward, Ah Chee was recruited from South Fremantle Football Club in the 2011 AFL draft. His ancestors were Australian Aboriginal, Chinese, Dutch, and Scottish.

He is the older brother of Brisbane Lions player Callum Ah Chee. Ah Chee has the nickname Polly, because of his ability to handball unusually long distances like Graham “Polly” Farmer.

In season 2015, Ah Chee began his fourth season at Port Adelaide without a senior game to his name and needing to make an impression just to retain his spot on the list at season’s end. Following some strong SANFL form, he was selected to make his AFL debut against North Melbourne in round 3. He started as substitute but had a late impact, setting up the winning goal with what eventually became his trademark long range handball.

Ah Chee played a further 10 games and began to establish himself as an AFL player late in the season, collecting 24 disposals, 3 goals and 3 Brownlow Medal votes against Greater Western Sydney and then 25 disposals and a goal against Hawthorn. His combination of a strong body, athletic prowess, and a lightning handball made Ah Chee a valuable contributor to the Power.

In 2017 Ah Chee requested a trade from Port Adelaide, citing a lack of opportunity as the primary reason, and was traded to West Coast.
