Oliver Davis Flies South

29 October 2021

Oliver Davis signs with the Panthers.

The Tasmanian will head to Flinders University Stadium in 2022. 

The 19-year old spent the last part of the 2021 season with the Crows SANFL team. 

The midfielder made his debut in round 7 against Norwood where he started off with a bang collecting 26-touches. 

In 2020, Davis took out the Matthew Richardson Medal, which is awarded to the Tasmian State League’s best under-23 player.

He also took home the Clarence Roos Best and Fairest in a break-out year for the teenager. 

Averaging 16 disposals for the Crows in 2021, Davis is a gritty ball winner with clean hands.  

Senior Coach Jarrad Wright is excited for what Davis will bring to the Panthers in 2022.

"Ollie has shown some very good growth in his game this year with the Crows, his contest work is terrific and has a high workrate." Said Senior Coach Jarrad Wright

"He comes into our program with some league experience and adds to our youthful talent that is coming through our pathway. Ollie will add value our midfield with his stoppage craft and will continue to develop under senior players of Bryce Gibbs and Ben Heaslip"
