It was sixth time lucky for the mature-age inside midfielder/forward after he first nominated for the draft in 2012. Injuries and his off-season training approach meant he was previously overlooked, until he finished second in the 2017 Sandover Medal after a standout season for South Fremantle. Speedy and skilful, Kelly arrived at the club and took centre stage very quickly. After playing every game and completing a stellar 2018 season, Kelly was recognised by winning the 2018 AFL Players’ Association Best First Year Player Award, as-well as placing equal second alongside Patrick Dangerfield in the Club’s 2018 Best and Fairest.
