Winderlich's decision to retire at the end of 2014 coincided with a brilliant form patch for the speedy Bomber, who moved to half-back under coach Mark Thompson. After being talked out of retirement, Winderlich eventually signed a one-year contract extension. His expertise near goal provides the Bombers' forward line with great skill and nous.

Season By Season

Winderlich will be a week-to-week proposistion for the rest of his career as he deals with soft-tissue injuries, but when he takes the field he remains one of Essendon's classiest players. In 12 games stationed maily across half-forward in 2013, Winderlich kicked 17 goals, including a three-goal haul in round five against Collingwood and 10 between rounds 14-16. Adds speed and precision skills to the Bombers' forward line.
