Curtly a Crow

Unfortunately this season he wasn’t able to play as much senior football as he would have liked so hopefully this trade can facilitate more opportunities for him.

The Greater Western Sydney GIANTS have received the Adelaide Crow’s future second round selection in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft in exchange for defender Curtly Hampton.

Hampton, 22, played five AFL games in 2015 to take his career total to 51 games over four seasons at the GIANTS.

Despite being contracted for 2016, the GIANTS last month granted Hampton permission to explore trade options for greater playing opportunities. 

GIANTS General Manager Football Graeme Allan thanked Hampton for his contribution to the club.

“Curtly is an outstanding young man and has come a long way since joining the GIANTS in 2010,” Allan said.

“Unfortunately this season he wasn’t able to play as much senior football as he would have liked so hopefully this trade can facilitate more opportunities for him.

“Securing a second-round pick in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft puts us in a good position to explore further options at the end of next season.

“We thank Curtly for his time at the GIANTS and wish him well for the future.”

Originally from Alice Springs, Hampton joined the GIANTS as a Northern Territory Zone selection in 2010.

The GIANTS currently hold picks, 8, 27, 45, 63, 81, 99, and 117 at next month’s NAB AFL Draft in addition to Adelaide’s future second-round pick in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft.

Earlier today the GIANTS also signed unrestricted free agent Dawson Simpson from the Geelong Cats.
