Talented young defender Fischer McAsey has signed a two-year contract extension with the Crows recommitting to the Club until the end of 2023.
The 20-year-old from Victoria has played 10 AFL games since he was drafted by Adelaide with Pick No.6 in 2019, all coming in his first season in 2020.
At 197cm and 98kg, McAsey is a versatile key position player who can play at either end of the ground but is currently honing his craft with the Crows’ defensive stocks.
He believes the current environment at the Club under Senior Coach Matthew Nicks is the right one for him to continue his development and contribute to the team.
“I’m excited by what we’re building at Adelaide and I can see the direction we are heading,” McAsey said.
“My faith in the Club has never wavered and I have enjoyed settling into Adelaide over the first two years.
“I want to be part of it and I believe the coaches we have will enable me to get the best out of myself.
“We have a great group of young players who are coming through together and we are driving each other to get better every day, so I am really pleased to be here for another two years.”
Adelaide General Manager List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said McAsey was an important part of the Club’s future.
“We have a lot of belief in Fischer and value him incredibly highly both as a footballer and a person,” Reid said.
“He is very diligent and determined to work on his game, we have already seen him perform at AFL level and we look forward to seeing his improvement over coming years as he emerges with a group of exciting young players at our Club.”
