One of Noosa’s Favourite Son’s is Back!

One of the most loved players in recent Noosa AFC history returns. Jai Fitzpatrick had a stella season playing for Aspley in the VFL but with Aspley returning to the QAFL for 2022 Jai decided to join Jono & Temps in returning to Noosa full time.

Jai has been one of the most consistent big game performers over the past decade and with his VFL experience from this season we believe Jai will elevate his game to a new level for season 2022

Noosa AFC couldn’t be happier to have Jai back with us

Jai answered a few questions for our supporters

Name: Jai Fitz

Age: 25

Position: Midfield

Noosa AFC: Welcome back to the Noosa Football Club, what made you decide to play for us in 2022?

Jai: We have had some real success in recent years but we have had to go through a rebuild this year and I feel like the challenge of us having something to prove was a big factor and playing apart in the changing of the guard. I’m really excited to play a part in it.

Noosa AFC: What would be your best position?

Jai: I love playing in the Midfield

Noosa AFC: What do you do for work?

Jai: I’m a carpenter, hopefully soon to be builder

Noosa AFC: Do you have any other hobbies away from Footy?

Jai: I love surfing and playing Mixed Netball

Noosa AFC: Career Highlights?


  • Playing in the VFL this year was great
  • Back to back flags at Noosa in 2019/2020
  • Being Voted league MVP in 2019 (Premiership Year)
  • BOG in the 2018 Senior grand Final

Noosa AFC: What AFL club do you support, who is you Favorite Former player & Current AFL Footballer?

Jai: Im a Carlton man, Chris Judd by far & I love watching The Bont

Noosa AFC: What do you want to achieve at Noosa AFC both personally & as a team in 2022


Personally – Id just love to have a year of really good consistent footy

Team – I think we can improve enough to play finals

Noosa AFC: Jai, being a son of a gun (Tony) its great to see the Fitzpatrick name still having a huge impact at Noosa and hopefully we can see you play a senior game with your brother Declan next year also.
