Promising young forward Elliott Himmelberg will be a Crow until at least 2020, after signing a two-year contract extension.

The 198cm big man showed plenty of upside during his first season at the Club last year highlighted by a four-goal effort against Port Adelaide in Round 12 of the SANFL.

Himmelberg said he was thrilled to continue his time at West Lakes.

“The Club has been fantastic to me ever since I first arrived,” Himmelberg said.

“I’ve settled in nicely to Adelaide and I’m stoked to be able to play footy here for another couple of years at least.”

General Manager List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said Himmelberg was an exciting player for fans to look out for the future.

“Elliott is a key position type with some good skills for a player his size, he has transitioned into our football program well and we are thrilled to have him commit to Adelaide for a further two years,” Reid said.

“We have been really impressed with him since his arrival at the Club and his attitude and application to training this pre-season has been fantastic.

“We are really excited to watch him develop as a player and as a person over the next few years.”
