Former Adelaide forward Jess Sedunary is a Crow again after the Club finalised a trade with St Kilda on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old, who won a premiership with the Crows in 2017, joined expansion Club St Kilda ahead of the 2020 season.

Adelaide swapped picks 34 (Crows) & pick 42 (St Kilda on traded from Carlton) to lure Sedunary home, who admittedly missed South Australia during her time in Melbourne. 

Crows General Manager of Football Administration Phil Harper said Sedunary would be welcomed back with open arms.

“Jess was offered an exceptional deal by St Kilda, we certainly understood that and there were no hard feelings when she left last year ” Harper said.

“Whilst she made some great friends in Melbourne ,she missed home like crazy &  also missed her friends at the Crows…

“For her to come back is a big win for us, she adds to our team significantly as a half-forward who kicks goals - which we struggled to do this season. 

“She was in our best 21 in 2019 and we see no reason why she won’t be in our best 21 next season.

“She’s a super popular person at the Club, so her return will be good for the team culture as well.”

Sedunary played 15 games for the Crows and finished fourth in the Club’s Club Champion tally in 2017.

The AFLW trade period opened on Monday, August 3 and will finish at 2pm (AEST) on Wednesday, August 12. 

Restricted free-agents can continue to move until 2pm (AEST) on Monday, August 17 and delisted free-agents have until 2pm (AEST) on Friday, August 21 

The final AFLW draft order will be finalised shortly after.
