Unfortunately, 2015 was another injury-interrupted season fo Will Hams who was unable to string together consistent games in either the AFL or VFL. Although hip problems hampered his season, Hams did return for three senior games early in the season and showed signs of what he is capable of. The in-and-under midfielder is highly respected at the Club.

Hams was rookie listed by the Club at the end of the 2015 season, with the hope that he will work his way back to the senior list. 

Season By Season

Season By Season

Hams won the respect of the playing group when he trained with the club ahead of last year's Pre-Season Draft. The club selected him and the rugged, tenacious left-footed midfielder had some success in his first season, playing two senior games. His first came as a late inclusion against the Sydney Swans in round 10 and he featured again the next week against Carlton, when he put his head over the ball and wona  late crucial contest to help his side to a win. Needs to build up his strength to become more of a permanent fixture, but is smart around goal and has courage. 

Season By Season

Presistent hip problems curtailed Hams in his second AFL season and several setbacks meant he didn't play a game at any level. However, by the end of the season, he had re-joined training and set his sights on a full 2015 campaign. The hard-at-it and committed midfielder was given a one-year-deal and is a respected competitive player at Essendon.
