Pick 62: Matthew Signorello

Pick 62: Matthew Signorello Check out the highlights of the Crows' latest draftee, Pick 62 - Matthew Signorello - Midfielder from Northern Knights (Vic)

Midfielder Matthew Signorello has become the fourth player taken by Adelaide in the 2016 AFL National Draft.

The Crows called Signorello's name with pick No.62 in Sydney on Friday night.

Signorello was the third onballer selected by Adelaide, joining Jordan Gallucci and Myles Poholke. The Club also bolstered its key-position stocks by drafting the versatile Elliot Himmelberg. 

Position: Midfield
Club: Northern Knights
Height: 184cm
Weight: 72kg
DOB: 30/10/98

An energetic midfielder, Signorello played most of the season for Ivanhoe Grammar but averaged 23 disposals per game in eight TAC Cup appearances with Northern Knights.

Signorello, who played junior football with West Preston Lakeside and South Morang, has good endurance and a burst of speed and is also a strong mark for his size.

Northern Knights talent manager Rhy Gieschen says:

“Matty has been a good player at every level he’s played at and is really athletic. I’d say his main strength is his ability to hunt the football. He has the ability to jump up and take a mark for a player that gets around the ground so well as a midfielder and I think he can really hurt sides in the air with his marking ability.”
