The new Crow to watch out for in 2019


Adelaide coach Don Pyke has earmarked mature-aged recruit Shane McAdam as a player to watch out for throughout the 2019 season.

McAdam, 23, joined the Crows along with pick No. 13 and a future fifth-round selection in a three-way trade that saw Mitch McGovern land at Carlton and Sydney secure selections No. 26, 28 and 40.

The medium-sized forward scored 31 goals in 17 games for SANFL outfit Sturt last year and caught the eye with his forward line pressure, speed and agility.

“We’re really excited about having Shane (McAdam) on board,” Pyke told SEN Breakfast.

“He’s a mature-aged guy that’s played some good footy at SANFL level. He’s making that transition, as all first-year guys do, between playing at a local level then getting into the AFL.

100% the bucket list event of the year!


“He’s certainly one to look out for – he’s highly talented, he moves really well and has a great feel for the game.”

McAdam recently spent time in hospital with a bout of gastro but is expected to recover in time for the start of the JLT Community Series.
