Alberton hosts preseason game

The Port Adelaide Football Club welcomes the AFL’s revamped JLT Community Series format and its fixture for 2018.

The Power’s first game will be against West Coast at Perth’s Leederville Oval on Sunday, February 25.

Alberton Oval will host Port’s second and final game, against Adelaide on Saturday, March 10.

General Manager of Football Chris Davies says two pre-season games against AFL opposition is enough to prepare for the regular season.

“Like all clubs, match simulation is a significant part of our pre-season training,” Davies said.

“As we have in the past we’ll play an internal trial game as well, so the two JLT Community Series games will have our squad ready to go for the first round of the Home and Away season.

“An away trip so early in the year can be a genuine bonding experience for a group that always welcomes new players and staff from year to year so we’re looking...

AFL: Draft prospects

This story originally appeared on afl.com.au. The views represented are not that of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

WITH the NAB AFL Trade Period done, all attention now turns to next month's NAB AFL Draft in Sydney.

With the draft order now settled, AFL.com.au has honed in on each club's first draft choice and found a player who might be in their thinking, plus some other names who could be in consideration in that range. 

The draft will take place at Sydney Showgrounds on Friday, November 24.

Pick 12: Jake Lever's departure, then Bryce Gibbs' arrival, and then Charlie Cameron's exit, meant the Crows will start with pick 12 at the draft. It's a spot where the grand finalists may be able to add a player ready to help them next year. Darcy Fogarty could be that guy. Fogarty begun the season as a No.1 contender but isn't in that group now, however the South Australian is a big,...

Aidyn Johnson will remain at Alberton until at least the end of the 2019 season after committing to a new contract.

 

General Manager of Football Chris Davies says the 19-year-old showed his potential after earning his AFL debut and playing five games in the 2017 season. 

 

“Aidyn had 14 disposals and kicked two goals on debut against Carlton in Round five,” Davies said.

 

“His speed is a major asset and his pressure around the contest is at a high level.

 

“His challenge is to take it to a new level in 2018.” 

 

Johnson says he’s eager to get back to work when pre-season training begins in late November.

Port list strengthened, says Davies

THE 2017 Free Agency and Trade Periods have ended with the Port Adelaide Football Club pleased to sign big name trio Tom Rockliff, Steven Motlop and Jack Watts.

General Manager of Football, Chris Davies, says the Power achieved what it set out to.

“Jason Cripps and his list management team put a lot of preparation in during the year and were able to execute the deals they planned for,” Davies said.

“They identified Tom and Steven some time ago as free agents who we were interested in bringing to the club.

“Jack Watts’ availability became apparent some time later but again it is a credit to Jason and his team, plus Ken Hinkley, Travis Boak and several others at the club, that they were able to convince these young men that there’s a bright future on offer at Alberton.”

Davies says he’s confident Port Adelaide has strengthened its list but warns that doesn’t guarantee success.
