Former Adelaide midfielder Scott Thompson’s last four seasons at the Crows were spent playing home games at Adelaide Oval.

The Crows lined up in their first AFL game for premiership points at Adelaide Oval in an away Showdown against Port Adelaide on March 29, 2014.

This weekend’s home match at Adelaide Oval against Brisbane will mark the 100th time Adelaide has played at the iconic venue.

And ahead of the special match, Thompson spoke on Triple M’s The Crows Radio Show and revealed his favourite memories of playing at the oval.

For Thompson, nothing will beat the Round 16 Showdown played in 2015 in memory of the Club’s late Coach, Phil Walsh.

The ex-midfielder won the Phil Walsh Medal for the best on ground after amassing 36 possessions, eight tackles, 13 clearances and kicking one goal.

“It was still so raw and emotional after where the group was after the sad passing of Phil,” Thompson said.

“It had been a big couple of weeks for the Club - the first game that got postponed or cancelled against Geelong.

“Then the whole Club pretty much packed up and moved over to Perth for a week and played against West Coast.

“That week was pretty much a blur but to come back and perform the way we did as a team against Port that following week was an awesome experience.

“It was great how the two Clubs handled that time (and) I was really proud of what the group did on that particular day.”

Thompson, now 39, said relocating home games from Football Park to Adelaide Oval was the right decision by all involved.

“There’s something special about when a goal is kicked by the home team at Adelaide Oval. the crowd noise is unbelievable,” Thompson said.

“In a game against Collingwood when Josh Jenkins kicked a goal right on the siren around three-quarter time, there was a lot of debate as to whether it was kicked on the siren or after the siren, purely because of the crowd noise.

“It’s a great place to play footy.

“I think now for Adelaide as a whole, the fact that it’s right near the centre of the city, everything is available as far as accommodation, restaurants, and whatever else within walking distance, it’s a great place now to travel and watch a great game of footy.”

Although Thompson quickly became a fan favourite at the Crows, his AFL career began with Melbourne.

He was selected with Pick No.16 at the 2000 AFL National Draft and played 39 matches for the Demons from 2001-2004.

Thompson was then traded to Adelaide at the end of the 2004 season and went on to play 269 games in 13 seasons.

“It seems only like yesterday but I was only a young 17-year-old lad who just finished at St Michael’s College and packed the bags and moved to Melbourne,” Thompson said.

“I really enjoyed my time there and I still have some pretty close mates from my time there at Melbourne.

“After my fourth year with a couple of injury-interrupted years, I just wanted to make a move and I thought ‘if I’m going to go anywhere, why not go back to Adelaide?’

I spent 13 years there (at the Crows) and I’ve got some lifelong friends. It’s a really great establishment.”
