THE Canberra Demons are delighted to announce the re-signing of midfielder Jack Powell.
A member of both the AFL and GWS Giants Academy Powell narrowly missed out on draft selection in 2017 and despite an array of interstate offers for 2018 the 18-year-old insists Canberra is the best place to further his aspirations of playing at AFL level.
“The NEAFL is a competition capable of producing AFL talent so to continue my development here is something I’m really excited for.
Canberra is a side that I think a lot of people will take notice of this year, we’ve recruited well and the prospect of playing finals with such a young squad was a key factor in re-signing,” said Powell.
Having represented the Allies Squad and testing at the AFL National Draft Combine in 2017 the Ainslie Junior will look to cement a Demons midfield spot this season.
