Adelaide midfielder Brad Crouch has today informed the Club of his decision to explore his options as a restricted free agent.

Crows Head of Football Adam Kelly said the list management team would now investigate a range of avenues to ensure the best possible outcome. 

“We will now consider our options and make decisions that are in the best interests of the Adelaide Football Club,” Kelly said. 

Crouch has played 95 games since arriving at West Lakes as a 17-year-old in the 2011 mini draft.

The Club can also confirm defender Kyle Hartigan has decided to pursue his rights as an unrestricted free agent and is leaving to return home to Victoria.

Hartigan has played 113 AFL games after being selected by the Crows as a mature-age player in the 2012 rookie draft.

“Kyle is a quality individual who has consistently given his all both on and off the field during his eight seasons with the Club,” Kelly said.

“He has worked tirelessly with the Adelaide Crows Foundation and will always be a part of the Crows family.

“We wish Kyle, Emily and Hazel all the very best for their move to Victoria.”

This year’s free agency window runs from October 30 to November 6.
