At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Keilor
Recruited from: Western Jets, pick 20 2014
Debut: 2015

Laverde has endured a tough start to his AFL career, which has been ravaged by injury since Essendon drafted him with pick 20 in the 2014 National Draft.

The young forward played nine games in each of his first two seasons at Essendon, but after an injury-interrupted start to 2017 could only play five senior games late last season.

Laverde displayed his attacking prowess with an impressive six-goal haul against the Northern Blues in the VFL last year and will be hoping to translate that form and secure a spot in the club’s senior side this year.
