Player Bio

Tom Scully is a left-footed midfielder from Berwick in Victoria. He was drafted to the Melbourne Demons at pick one in the 2009 NAB AFL Draft and made his debut in Round 1 the following year. Scully joined the GIANTS as an uncontracted player at the end of 2011. He was named vice-captain of the GIANTS at the beginning of 2013. Scully was awarded the Coaches Award at the 2013 Kevin Sheedy Medal.
 

Used in a run-with role for much of last season, Scully had players such as Gary Ablett, Brad Ebert and Rory Sloane for company at various stages. He still won his own ball, averaging 20 possessions in his 15 matches, adding 4.5 tackles and three marks a game before injuries curtailed his season. A hamstring issue between rounds 14-15 was followed by a knee injury three weeks later that ended his campaign early. The vice-captain is on track to be fit and firing to start his sixth season and fourth as a GIANT.

The Giants vice-captain took another noticeable step forward in his development in an encouraging 2013 campaign that ended with a well-deserved third place in the Kevin Sheedy Medal. Missing just one game due to a concussion, Scully averaged 18 disposals and four tackles a game and showed strong leadership filling a variety of roles.

Scully entered 2012 under immense pressure after the former No.1 draft pick's move from Melbourne. But he handled it well, making 19 appearances for the season and finishing fourth in the Giants' best and fairest award, showing a previous knee injury was behind him. He averaged over 20 disposals for the season, led by a 30-possession effort against West Coast in round three. Scully also benefited from some run-with roles and is set for a long career in western Sydney.

The number one pick in the 2009 NAB AFL Draft, Scully is the highest profile uncontracted player to join GWS. The highly skilled young midfielder played 31 games with Melbourne before moving to Sydney and will be a key part of the club's future.
