Career highlights

Kyle Reimers (born 10 January 1989) is a former Australian rules footballer, who played with Essendon in the AFL, debuting in 2007. Reimers was pick number 47 in the 2006 AFL Draft, having played with Peel Thunder. He played for Western Australia in the 2005 U-16 Championships and the 2006 U-18 Championships.

Reimers has played a role in the Bombers rebuilding phase of 2008 and is currently wearing the guernsey number 37. On the way to becoming an established player at senior level, Reimers has quickly become a cult favourite amongst Essendon supporters, due to his iconic bright orange boots, and at times, overtly physically aggressive style of play.

Reimers was the Round 16 NAB AFL Rising Star Nominee in a match against Richmond.[1] Kyle also won the 2008 Rising Star at Essendons Best and Fairest.

In Round 6 of the 2011 AFL season, Reimers had his best performance at AFL level, kicking eight goals in Essendon's 139 point win over the Gold Coast Suns.[2] Outside of Matthew Lloyd and Scott Lucas, he was Essendon's highest goalscorer in any match since 1996. At the end of the 2012 AFL home and away season, Kyle Reimers was de-listed.

Post-AFL career[edit]

Kyle Reimers played for Perth Football Club in the W.A.F.L. in Season 2013 and in February 2014 returned to Victoria and was signed by Aberfeldie Football Club in the Essendon District Football League.
