At a Glance

Junior Clubs: - Winchelsea (Vic)
Recruited from: Geelong Falcons/VIC Country, pick 5 2015

At just 20 years of age, Parish has already established himself as a terrific midfielder for the Bombers, playing 40 senior games in his first two seasons at the club.

After being selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2015 National Draft, Parish made an immediate impact for Essendon and continued his rapid development with another strong season in 2017.

Taking more of a back seat last year upon the return of several key teammates, Parish impressed with an average of 21 disposals, nine contested possessions and five score involvements.

There is certainly a lot to look forward to for Bombers fans this year as Parish continues his development as a midfielder to be reckoned with.
