Crows lock away younger Crouch

Crows lock away younger Crouch

MATT Crouch will remain in Adelaide until at least the end of 2021 after signing a three-year contract extension.

The 22-year-old’s new deal comes following a standout 2017 season in which he won the Crows’ club champion award and broke the AFL record for most disposals in a season.

“I’m really pleased to be able to wear the Crows colours for the next four years at least,” Crouch said.

“The Club is a fantastic place to be with a committed playing and coaching group who are determined to achieve success.

“I’m excited for what the future holds and look forward to the start of Season 2018 already.”

Crouch joined Adelaide from TAC Cup club North Ballarat with pick No.23 in the 2013 National Draft and has played 72 games, including the Crows’ grand final loss to Richmond.

“Matt has developed into one of the premier midfielders in the competition and to have him around until at least 2021 is a great result for the Club,” club list manager Justin Reid said.

“He has not only bought into but led the way with the Club’s team-first culture and helped create a really positive environment.

“At only 22 years of age his best football is still ahead of him and we are excited to continue to see him grow as a player and a leader.”
