Key forward signs with the Panthers

South Adelaide is please to announce the signing of key position forward Hayden McLean.

McLean is a physical forward known for his strong contested marking ability and accuracy in front of the sticks.

Prior to joining the Panthers, McLean, who weighs in at a formidable 197cm and 93kg, spent the last season playing alongside former Panther Brede Seccull with Sandringham in the VFL, claiming the club's best first year player award in 2018.

In 13 games for the Zebras, McLean averaged 13.2 disposals, 5.2 marks and 10.3 hit outs, while also slotting nine goals.

The 19 year old also enjoyed an impressive junior career, showcasing good leadership qualities as he captained Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup and served as vice captain for Victoria Metro in the AFL National Championships in 2017.

"Hayden is an imposing key forward who has played some strong VFL footy despite being just 19 years of age," said senior coach Jarrad Wright.

"Losing Nathan Kreuger to Geelong left us with a hole to fill up front and we really believe Hayden can play a nice role for us in the forward half.

"He is a very strong pack mark and should provide some good support for Sam Overall up front, taking catches and helping provide our smalls with plenty of opportunities.

"He is a big boy and he has pinch hit in the ruck for Sandringham and Vic Metro in the past, but we see him ideally as a strong forward target."

Join us in welcoming Hayden to Noarlunga!
