First-year Crow Chayce Jones has taken out the Mark Bickley Emerging Talent Award for 2019.
An amalgamation of two awards from the Club's history, the Emerging Talent award recognises the achievements of a first or second-year player under the age of 21 both on and off the field.
Jones burst onto the scene this season, making his AFL debut in Round One after putting himself in the spotlight during Adelaide’s pre-season campaign.
A top 10 pick in the 2018 national draft, Jones made the most of his early moments on the big stage, booting a goal with his first kick at AFL level.
The Tasmanian teenager finished the year on a high, returning to the senior side for the final two rounds and kicking two goals from 18 disposals in the final game of the season.
He joins a distinguished list of past winners, including previous players Andrew McLeod and Jason Porplyzia and current Crows Matt Crouch, Wayne Milera Junior and Tom Doedee.
