James Harmes’ versatility may be his biggest strength as a footballer.
He started his career as a dangerous small forward, starred in the midfield during Melbourne’s 2018 finals charge and played a role across half-back during stages of 2020.
But an interrupted season made it hard for Harmes to settle, so he will be looking to cement his spot in the Dees’ best 22 during 2021.
While his value on the field is evident, Harmes also brings an important energy off the field, being one of the most popular characters behind closed doors.
He has a bubbly personality and was recognised for his community work in 2019, receiving the Ian Ridley Memorial Trophy from his biggest fan, Jon.
