Player Bio

Background

David Armitage had a career defining season in 2015, establishing himself in the elite bracket of midfielders by adding some outside class to his work on the inside.

The 27-year-old was narrowly beaten in the Trevor Barker Award, finishing runner-up to Jack Steven in a year where the pair complemented each other’s games to become a destructive one-two.

Armitage averaged 28.4 possessions (2nd most at St Kilda), 12.4 contested possessions (1st), 6.2 clearances (1st) and 3.7 inside 50s (3rd) across 21 games in a stunning 2015.

The Queensland product also turned his back on the overtures of free agency, inking a three-year deal to join Steven as one of St Kilda’s stars to commit long-term to the club.
