Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Flinders Park/Woodville West Torrens
Debut: v Fremantle, Round 12, 2014
Recruited from: Woodville-West Torrens
Brownlow Votes: -

Made his AFL debut as the substitute for Adelaide’s Round 12 clash with Fremantle after a string of consistent SANFL performances. Ellis-Yolmen played predominantly as a big-bodied midfielder in Adelaide’s State League team and finished fourth in the side’s best and fairest count. He also showed his versatility with several impressive shut-down roles. Polled his first Magarey Medal votes this year and led the SANFL Crows for disposals, clearances and tackles. Knocking on the door for more opportunities at AFL level next year.

Season by Season

Season by Season

The promising Crow established himself as a capable running defender at SANFL level in 2013, playing 14 senior games, including two finals, for Woodville-West Torrens. Ellis-Yolmen showed enough to earn a two-year contract extension, and was selected in the Australian Indigenous team to play Ireland in the International Rules series. Impressed in two NAB Cup games last pre-season and will be looking to become a consistent contributor in 2014.

Season by Season

An exciting but raw talent, Ellis-Yolmen picked up 21 possessions and a goal in his league debut for Woodville-West Torrens in April. The young Crow spent the latter part of the season in the Eagles reserves, but at 188cm and 88kg Ellis-Yolmen looms as a handy future midfield prospect.

Season by Season

After sitting out all of 2010 because of a knee injury, Ellis-Yolmen came into draft calculations late last year after a strong finish to the season with the Woodville-West Torrens reserves. The 188cm, 88kg, utility played as a key-position forward/defender and even in the ruck in his junior career, but impressed recruiters with his athleticism, ball-reading ability and clean hands around the packs when he was shifted into the midfield last season. He was selected with Adelaide’s last pick (No.64 overall) in the 2011 AFL Draft.
