We sat down with our General Manager of Football Chris Davies to give our members and fans an understanding of our decision-making process throughout the trade period.

We discussed the key objectives heading in to this year’s trade period, what we can expect from the new recruits, farewelling a number of players, and our positioning is the next two drafts.

What were the main priorities heading in to this trade period?

Our issues were clear throughout the season - we weren’t able to finish our work inside 50, our composure lacked at times, and our accuracy in front of goal cost us.

There were at least two or three games during the 2017 season where...

JACK WATTS will be looking to make an immediate impression on the Port Adelaide faithful - they’ve certainly made an impression on him.

After joining Port Adelaide in a trade with the Demons on Tuesday afternoon, the 26-year-old was quick to label our True Believers as a force to be reckoned with.  

He told FIVEaa’s Rowey and Bicks the atmosphere at a Power home game is something very special.

“There are some pretty amazing Port Adelaide supporters I would love to impress and get on my side, so I’m looking forward to that,” he said.

 “As an opposition player, it still gives me tingles.

Power Community signs new partner

AAA_uniofa.jpg

POWER Community Limited's Aboriginal AFL Academy program has signed a three-year partnership with prominent tertiary education provider the University of Adelaide. 

The main goal of Port Adelaide’s Aboriginal AFL Academy - to provide Indigenous youth with a pathway to tertiary education – is now even smoother after announcing a three-year partnership with the University. 

The University’s Dean of Indigenous Research and Education Strategy, Professor Shane Hearn, says the partnership is another tool to help close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. 

“We will be supporting the next generation of young Indigenous leaders within the Aboriginal AFL Academy to consider a university education,” Professor Hearn said. 

“We were interested in a model that was about future-proofing, building the assets of young people and making it relevant throughout their life.

AARON YOUNG has found a new home on the Gold Coast after being traded to the Suns.

Young becomes a Sun in return for the future fourth-round selection Gold Coast received as part of its trade for former Crow Harrison Wigg.

Port Adelaide List Manager Jason Cripps wished the 24-year-old the best for the next stage of his career.

“Aaron showed in 2016 what a damaging player he can be, but outside that season hasn’t played AFL football as consistently as he would have liked,” Cripps said.

“Understandably he’s seeking more senior opportunity. Gold Coast is able to offer that and although we see...
