23-year-old Tom Fullarton has signed a one-year deal with the Brisbane Lions, securing his spot on the list until the end of 2023.

Managing just five matches during the 2022 season, Fullarton hasn't yet showcased elite form at AFL level but has proven to be an opposition headache in the VFL with his height and versatility.

Fullarton was picked up by the Lions as a Category B Rookie from the Brisbane Bullets NBL side midway through the 2018 season, exchanging a potentially successful basketball career for an AFL list spot.

This renowned 'basketball background' has helped in already establishing his reputation as a classy, versatile forward who can play a variety of roles.

The 200cm utility kicked 32 goals this season in the VFL, and impressed selectors enough to be picked for Brisbane's historic semi-final victory over Melbourne at the MCG.

Fullarton did feature in a career-best 12 matches for the Lions in 2021, playing across all three lines on the ground and it is clear that Brisbane see enough potential in the player to extend his tenure at least one more year.

Brisbane's List Manager, Dom Ambrogio spoke on the signing:

“Tom's a versatile player who has the ability to be a bit of a swingman for us if needed. He's a hard worker and goes about his footy the right way,” he said. 

“He's a popular member of the group that has a good grounding in our system. We're delighted to have him with us again next season.”
