Esperance midfielder Brayden Ainsworth was West Coast's fourth selection in the 2017 draft.

West Coast careerEdit

After playing senior football for Ports at the age of 16, Ainsworth moved to Perth in 2017 to play full-time for Subiaco and was rewarded with selection in the State under-18 side where he joined fellow draftee Oscar Allen in the All-Australian side before playing in the Lions' reserves premiership.[1]

Ainsworth impressed during the pre-season, and was selected as an emergency several times before finally making his debut against the Giants. He made two more appearances for the year, spending the majority of the season in East Perth's engine room.
