Brownlow Votes: 3

Played 11 games in a breakout 2013 season. The mature-bodied onballer showcased his versatility, playing shutdown roles on the likes of Ryan Griffen, Chris Judd and Grant Birchall, and also as a link-up forward. The highlight of Kerridge’s season was a match-defining six-goal haul in Adelaide’s thrilling come-from-behind win over North Melbourne, which earned him a Rising Star nomination. Signed a two-year deal that will see him remain a Crow until at least the end of 2015.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Adelaide’s first pick (No.29 overall) in the 2011 AFL Draft, Kerridge impressed in his first pre-season and earned a call-up as the substitute in the Club’s Round Three clash with Hawthorn. A favourable run with injuries prevented the hard-running midfielder from adding to his games tally in 2012, but he continued to display strong form for SANFL Sturt and will benefit from another full pre-season.

Season by Season

After sitting out most of the 2010 because of injury, Kerridge re-emerged to be a standout for TAC Cup side, Bendigo last season. Adelaide’s first pick in the 2011 AFL Draft (No.27 overall), the 18-year-old starred in the endurance testing at the AFL combine, finishing fourth in both the shuttle run (beep test) and 3km-time trial. At 187cm and 86kg, the inside midfielder is physically equipped to make a smooth transition to AFL.
