Decorated Adelaide defender Marijana Rajcic has called time on her AFLW career, departing West Lakes after 50 appearances and two premierships in tri-colours.

Rajcic, 33, commenced her days as a Crow in 2018, making her debut during Adelaide's Round 3 win over the Western Bulldogs.

Previously leading Adelaide's A-league women's side, Rajcic made the transfer from Hindmarsh Stadium, becoming a favourite of head coaches Bec Goddard and Matthew Clarke along the way.

With a pair of flags to her name, the stopper claimed she was content with her career journey, stressing that her life had been changed for the better since picking up a Sherrin.

AFLW and the Adelaide Crows changed my life for the better seven years ago. It's been an unbelievable journey with so many unforgettable memories and special friendships,” Rajcic said.

“I am incredibly grateful to the Club for taking a chance on a girl who played the round ball game, and to all of those who have played a part in my journey."

Rajcic also paid respect to her partner, and captain, Chelsea Randall, stressing the flags and the medals all sat behind the rewards of their relationship.

“A big thank you to my family for their support and to my partner Chelsea – the best thing to come out of my AFLW career," Rajcic continued.

“I also want to thank our members and supporters, as without you this great game we play wouldn't be the same.”

Crows Head of Women's Football Phil Harper tipped his own hat to the defender affectionately known as 'MJ'.

“For the past six seasons, MJ has been one of the most popular and valued players in our AFLW squad as well as being a huge asset to our Club,” Harper said within a prepared statement.

“She's been incredibly consistent in our defence and to retire as a dual premiership player, having played 50 matches, is an outstanding achievement, particularly given she only made the switch from soccer at the age of 27.

“We will certainly miss MJ's contribution on the field, but she will always be part of our Crows family and we know she will continue to be involved with the Club and our AFLW side.”
