WEST Coast has invited former Fremantle-listed ruckman Luke Strnadica and overlooked draft prospect Kade Dittmar to trial for its vacant list spots this pre-season. 

The pair are among eight players across the competition officially invited to train with clubs ahead of the Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period, with more likely to be added in the coming weeks. 

The Eagles have at least one spot to fill after the NAB AFL Draft and Rookie Draft, while Brad Sheppard's concussion challenges could open a second spot if he retires or is placed on the inactive list. 

Strnadica spent 2017-18 with the Dockers but was delisted without playing a senior game, returning to WAFL club East Fremantle where he has strived to reignite his career for the past three seasons.

Dittmar is a tough inside midfielder from East Perth who has battled significant back injuries but had a clear run in 2021, earning selection in the WA under-19s team. 

The pair will begin training with the Eagles on Tuesday after undergoing medical testing at the club. 

Elsewhere, Essendon has invited West Adelaide wingman Ronald Fejo jnr to trial for one of its two vacant spots, alongside delisted midfielder Dylan Clarke

The Pre-Season Supplemental Period runs from January 10 to March 9, while clubs also have the option of keeping a rookie spot open for the Mid-Season Rookie Draft on June 1.
