Dashing defender Alastair Lord has received the best present on the eve of his 18th birthday, joining Essendon in the 2021 NAB AFL Draft.
The Norwood product arrives at the Bombers via pick No.46 - the club's second selection.
A run-and-gun player who breaks the lines and uses the ball well, Lord averaged 22.4 disposals and 5.4 marks from his five SANFL matches this season.
Injuries limited his 2021 campaign, but Lord bounced back with a strong showing at the SA Draft Combine, recording the best agility test time (7.94 seconds) and the fifth-fastest 2km time trial (6.48 secs) of all players that took part in the Combine around the country.
