Player Bio

Patrick Ambrose played junior football with Ashburton and Xavier College before linking with Coburg in the VFL.  He then reunited with his schoolmates at Old Xaverians in the Victorian Amateur Football Association.

After playing with Essendon in the VFL Ambrose was picked up in the 2013 Rookie Draft.  Then Coach Mark Thompson took an instant liking to Ambrose who made his debut in round one and kicked three goals against Hawthorn in his second match.  He finished his first season with 13 goals and kicked six in 2015.

After spending his first two seasons in attack, a shift to the backline saw Ambrose produce some strong performances in 2016.  Ambrose kept Riewoldt goalless when he lined up on the Tigers spearhead in round 17.  The 25 year old finished just outside the top ten in the best and fairest but came home strongly with the coaches recognising his strong last month of the season.
