It took a bit longer and a bit more than we were hoping for, but 2019 All-Australian midfielder and back to back runner-up Carji Greeves Medalist Tim Kelly has today joined the club in a landmark trade from Geelong.
The trade sees West Coast give up pick 14, 24, 33 (to Essendon) and our 2020 first rounder, with Tim Kelly, pick 57 and Geelong’s 2020 3rd round selection coming back.
Kelly is widely expected to take the vacant #11 guernsey last worn by Brownlow Medalist and club legend Matthew Priddis. The guernsey was retired for the 2018 season as a mark of respect for the departing Priddis. It was made active again for the 2019 season but left vacant due to Kelly’s expected arrival.
