He was delisted by the Lions at the end of the 2014 season.

In February 2015, Polkinghorne was given a short-term contract by Essendon to play in the 2015 NAB Challenge as a "top-up" player, due to 26 Essendon players withdrawing from the NAB Challenge because of the ongoing Essendon Football Club supplements controversy.

In January 2016, he was signed with Essendon as a top-up player.
