Jamaine Jones is ready to re-launch his AFL career after earning a club debut with West Coast.
The creative small forward, who hails from Heywood and played for Portland, was picked for the Eagles' round four clash against Port Adelaide at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.
Jones joined West Coast in March via the Supplemental Selection Period, following seven games with Geelong, much to the delight of his foster family.
He will slot into the Eagles' forward line alongside key forward Josh Kennedy and goal sneak Liam Ryan.
Jones, now 21, rose to prominence as a teenager, earning plaudits for his interleague performance for the Hampden league in 2016.
He spent three seasons at Geelong as a rookie before he was delisted at the end of last year.
West Coast swooped on the energetic Jones when a spot opened up on its list.
Fellow Hampden league export Marty Gleeson was also recalled when AFL teams were announced on Thursday night.
The rebounding defender will feature in Essendon's match against Carlton at the MCG on Saturday night.
Gleeson spoke to The Standard last week about waiting for his chance.
