After leaving North Adelaide for a taste of AFL football with St Kilda (two games in 1993), Brodie Atkinson returned to the SANFL with North Adelaide and then Sturt. He won the 1997 Magarey Medal at Sturt and his consistent form at local level was eventually rewarded, aged 26, he was picked by the Crows at pick No. 80 in the 1998 national draft.
The midfielder played in the opening game of the 1999 season but only played four more games for Adelaide after battling injuries. Atkinson played in Sturt’s 2002 SANFL premiership side and the following year coached Portland to a premiership in the Western Border Football League.
