Player Bio

Nick Shipley became the first graduate of the GIANTS Academy in Western Sydney to join the club when he was selected with pick 64 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft. Hailing from Campbelltown, Shipley is a tall, strong midfielder and a contested ball-winner. Shipley excels at stoppages, has good vision and clean hands with terrific work-rate. As well as being part of the Academy, Shipley also played with the club’s NEAFL side during his underage years.‚Äč

The first-year midfielder got a small taste of senior football with two games in his debut season and, while he didn’t have a huge impact, there were signs he could develop into a quality on-baller. Shipley’s tackling and attack on the footy is impressive and he will improve quickly working under assistant coach and former St Kilda legend Lenny Hayes and teammates Callan Ward and Stephen Coniglio. The GIANTS showed they have faith in the western Sydney product by extending his contract until the end of 2021.

The GIANTfirstrst homegrown GIANTS Academy product found his feet in the NEAFL last year and finished the season with some solid displays at representative level. An inside midfielder with a strong work ethic, the former soccer player will only get better being in an elite environment on a full-time basis.
