Exciting forward Charlie Cameron has signed a contract extension, which will see him wear the Crows colours until at least the end of 2018.

Cameron, who was already contracted for 2016, has put pen to paper for an additional two years.

A latecomer to football, Cameron has been a revelation since joining Adelaide as a rookie in December, 2013. He’s played 25 career games, including 18 in a promising 2015 season.

The 21-year-old earned a Rising Star nomination against the Brisbane Lions in Round 13.

Cameron said he was thrilled to extend his time at West Lakes.

“I’ve learnt so much in my short time at the Crows particularly about what it takes to compete at the elite level,” Cameron said.

“We have a great group of players at the Club and I am excited to continue to work together towards success.”

Cameron has kicked 25 goals this season to be ranked fourth at Adelaide, and has a career total of 34 goals.

The speedy Crow is third at the Club in goal assists (15) equal with mentor Eddie Betts.

He also combines with Betts to apply defensive pressure, ranking level with Betts in creating turnovers that lead to Adelaide scores, and second for tackles inside the Crows’ attacking 50m.

Head of Football David Noble said Cameron was a promising young talent who added another dimension to the team.

“Charlie is an important part of our developing forward line,” Noble said.

“He is a fierce tackler who uses his speed to apply strong defensive pressure.

“Charlie is always looking to bring other players into the game, which demonstrates the Club’s team-first approach.”

Cameron follows Rory Sloane, Sam Jacobs, Richard Douglas, Rory Laird, Luke Brown, Jake Lever, Jake Kelly and Reilly O’Brien in signing on with the Club this season.
