The GIANTS have selected matured-aged midfielder Tom Hutchesson from Adelaide’s SANFL side with pick 65 of the 2019 NAB AFL Draft on Thursday night.

At 24-years-old Hutchesson becomes the GIANTS’ oldest draftee to have not previously been listed by an AFL club.

Hutchesson hails from Millicent - a town of just under 5,000 people 399km south-east of Adelaide - and made the move to Adelaide earlier this year after helping end Millicent’s 37-year premiership drought in 2018.

The carpenter signed on as a top-up player for the Crows’ SANFL team and impressed in his 14 games playing as a midfielder and half-forward.

Tom Hutchesson
From:
Adelaide (SANFL)/ Millicent
D.O.B: 4/4/1995
Height: 177cm
Weight: 75kg

Hutchesson is the fourth player to join the GIANTS in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft after Lachlan Ash and Tom Green were selected on Wednesday evening, and the GIANTS traded up the draft earlier on Thursday night to secure Jake Riccardi at pick 51.

What the club says: "When you draft a 23, 24-year old, I think you've got to have that mindset that they're going to be competing for a spot early on. Tom's definitely that, we're not drafting him thinking he'll play in two or three years, we want him to be part of our depth next year. If he's good enough to jump our small forwards who are there, fantastic." - GWS national recruiting manager Adrian Caruso on Thomas Hutchesson
