Defender Luke Brown has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal with the Crows, keeping him at the club until at least the end of the 2020 season.

Adelaide List Manager, Justin Reid, said the club is delighted to secure an important of its defensive six for another three years.

“We are thrilled to have Luke re-sign with us,” Reid said. “He is a key part of our back six and works in really well with our defensive group.
