Josh Battle Biography

Thursday, 16 January 2020
New St Kilda coach Brett Ratten has labelled Josh Battle the club's "ultimate swingman".

"We played him back last year for a big chunk and he has the ability to play forward as we know, [but] with that running power, could he play on the wing or through the midfield as well," Ratten told SEN radio.

"Maybe he could go through the three lines and give us the versatility to throw someone somewhere else. He could go on the ball or flip from one end to the other and really surprise an opposition team."

Bailey Banfield says the next step in his evolution as a run-with player is improving his mental strength.

Banfield wanted to prove recruiters wrong in 2018 after being overlooked in two national drafts, and the mature Claremont product featured in 20 games for Fremantle playing predominantly as a tagger.

"Physically, my body held up not too bad. I was pretty happy with the way I was able to recover and get up for the game," Banfield said.

"It was more the mental side where I felt the fatigue. It is a long season and I started to feel the grind towards the end of the season."

Tom Boyd says he is unsure where he would be if he ignored help to deal with his mental health battle.

"I was really struggling with quite a bit of stress, and though I didn't know it at the time, a bit of anxiety and really not feeling great about myself," Boyd said.

"I started suffering from quite bad insomnia and spent probably a month to six weeks without really sleeping at all.

"The real moment where my mind started to turn was having panic attacks when I was driving and the physiological effects of your heart racing, sweating, can't concentrate, feeling dizzy and that was a really challenging period of time in my life.

"I was seeing a psychologist from the club, who was an amazing support for me and quite honestly I'm not sure what would have happened if she wasn't there."

Tuesday, 3 July 2018
Josh Battle will miss up to three weeks with a fractured eye socket.

The 19-year-old has played three senior games this season, having made his debut with just one match in 2017.

Scans revealed two small fractures, but he won't require surgery.

Friday, 20 April 2018
Josh Battle signs a contract extension with St Kilda to remain at the club until the end of 2020.
Wednesday, 12 July 2017
Josh Battle will make his senior debut against Essendon at Etihad Stadium this week.

"Given what Tim provides our team and given we've come off such a strong performance, we want to keep it as like-for-like as possible," St Kilda coach Alan Richardson said.

"Josh is a really strong athlete; he's got a great combination of speed and endurance; he's a clever footballer; he wins the ball well in the air; his pressure and defence has been really positive at VFL level so we've decided to go with him because of all of those factors."

Friday, 25 November 2016
St Kilda select Josh Battle with pick No.39 in the 2016 National Draft.

"A medium forward who comes up at the ball and he's a good goalkicker and kicked nearly 40-odd goals in the TAC Cup and should complement the forwards we have at the club," St Kilda recruiting manager Tony Elshaug said.

"He's also an elite runner and a good young man."
