Cats pounce on Albany’s Clark in first round
Albany-raised footballer Jordan Clark will join Geelong after being taken with pick 15 in tonight’s AFL National Draft in Melbourne.
Clark, who played colts for Railways during his time in Albany, was touted as a potential top 10 selection after a brilliant season that included being selected as an All-Australian in the under-18 national championships.
He played senior football with Claremont in the WAFL this season and was the first WA player taken in the draft.
The 18-year-old attended the first-round draft function with his parents and was presented with his Geelong jumper on stage by Cats legend Corey Enright.
Clark was a highly-talented cricketer, who represented Australia at underage level before deciding on football as a career pathway this season.
