Three Crows put pen to paper

Adelaide are the latest club to announce a host of re-signings with Kyle Cheney, Ben Jarman and Paul Hunter penning deals to remain at the club next season. 

Cheney battled a number of injuries in the first half of the year before failing to crack their Grand Final bound side. Now at his third AFL club, the 28-year-old has played 77 games in the AFL including 36 with the Crows. 

Meanwhile Jarman and Hunter have signed one-year deals to remain on the club’s rookie list in 2018. 

Hunter will continue to play back up behind Sam Jacobs and Reilly O’Brien in the ruck while Jarman, son of club legend Darren, finished fifth in the club’s state league best and fairest after playing 18 games with the SANFL side this year. 

Adelaide General Manager of List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said the club was looking on all three players to look to build on their hard work from 2017. 

“Kyle has shown across his career that he has what it takes to compete at the highest level. While this year didn’t go to plan for him, he is excited for what next season holds,” Reid said.

“Ben and Paul impressed in the SANFL this year, with Ben improving his consistency at the level and Paul continuing to develop nicely as a ruckman/forward.

“We are thrilled that all three have re-committed to the Club for 2018.”
