Adelaide has locked away talented young midfielder Matt Crouch for a further three years.

Crouch, 20, has shown enormous promise in 25 AFL games since being selected with pick No.23 in the 2013 National Draft.

The prolific midfielder played 17 AFL games this season, averaging 21 possessions, four clearances and three tackles.

He was recognised with the Mark Bickley Award for Emerging Talent at the Crows Club Champion presentation last month, and was a Rising Star nominee in 2014.

Crouch is excited to commit to the Crows until at least the end of 2018.

“I love the Club and I think we showed this year that we’re on the right track,” Crouch said.

“It was great, especially for young players like myself, to play finals and that experience has pushed us to get better.

“I’m really happy to get the deal done, and I’m looking forward to working hard with the boys over the pre-season and continuing to improve as a player.”

Crows Head of Football David Noble said Crouch was a key signing for the Club’s future. 

“We see Matt as being an integral part of our midfield for the next decade,” Noble said.

“Matt has showed that he’s more than capable of playing at AFL level and we’re excited to see him develop, along with our core group of young players, over the next few years.”
