The 2009 Club Champion re-established himself as an integral part of the Crows side after an injury-interrupted two seasons because of injury. Rotating between the midfield and half-forward, Vince kicked 18 goals in 20 matches, including a bag of four in his 100th game against West Coast in Round 17. Was awarded the Michael Tuck Medal for best on ground in Adelaide’s NAB Cup Grand Final win.

Season by Season

Season by Season

After an indifferent start to the year with inconsistency and injury, Vince showed signs of recapturing his best-and-fairest winning form of 2009 towards the end of last season, amassing a season-high 35 disposals against Richmond in round 23. The 26-year-old has enjoyed a solid pre-season and approaching 100 games (88) will be determined to take the next step in his football development.
