Shane Mumford (born 5 July 1986) is an Australian rules football player, recruited at pick 57 in the 2007 AFL Rookie Draft by the Geelong Football Club.

Early career

In 2006, Mumford was the recipient of the Bunyip best and fairest award, as well as being the runner-up for the Ellinbank and District Football League medal. After being made aware of his abilities by Geelong VFL player, Jason Davenport, who was also in the AFL side as a rookie, Geelong's VFL side welcomed Mumford into their ranks for the 2007 season.cite web | title = Shane Mumford to make debut | url = http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sport/afl/story/0,26576,23590986-5015472,00.html | work = Scott Gullan | publisher = Herald Sun |date = 2008-04-24 | accessdate = 2007-04-27] It became quite a disappointing season for Mumford, only playing in six games for the premiership winning side,cite web | title = Shane Mumford to make debut | url = http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sport/afl/story/0,26576,23590986-5015472,00.html | work = Scott Gullan | publisher = Herald Sun |date = 2008-04-24 | accessdate = 2007-04-27] but his pure rucking ability won over the Geelong recruiters, who then drafted him with their last pick in the 2007 Rookie Draft.cite web | title = Shane Mumford to make debut | url = http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sport/afl/story/0,26576,23590986-5015472,00.html | work = Scott Gullan | publisher = Herald Sun |date = 2008-04-24 | accessdate = 2007-04-27]

After being drafted, Mumford showed up to pre-season training having re-inventing himself, losing 20kg and improved his fitness levels.cite web | title = Shane Mumford to make debut | url = http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sport/afl/story/0,26576,23590986-5015472,00.html | work = Scott Gullan | publisher = Herald Sun |date = 2008-04-24 | accessdate = 2007-04-27] Mumford was elevated off Geelong's rookie list on 23 April 2008, due to long-term injury of Matthew Egan, and was then immediately named to play in his first match in Round 6 - the following weekend.cite web | title = Shane Mumford to make debut | url = http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sport/afl/story/0,26576,23590986-5015472,00.html | work = Scott Gullan | publisher = Herald Sun |date = 2008-04-24 | accessdate = 2007-04-27] cite web | title = 20kg weight loss turns Cat rookie Shane Mumford's life around | url = http://www.geelongadvertiser.com.au/article/2008/04/25/13357_gfc.html | work = Michael Auciello | publisher = Geelong Advertiser |date = 2008-04-25 | accessdate = 2007-04-27] He replaced fellow ruckman Trent West to take part in Geelong's one-point win over Fremantle at Subiaco.
