Before football, Matt Crouch was a talented cricketer alongside older brother Brad. Prior to being drafted, the tough midfielder dominated the TAC Cup in 2013 and represented Vic Country in the Under-18 National Championships. Despite being eligible for the 2012 mini-draft, Crouch opted for the traditional way into an AFL Club. He was drafted to Adelaide, joining Brad as teammates yet again.
In 2015, Crouch averaged 21 disposals in his 17 games, before cementing his spot in the midfield in 2016. The left-footer broke records in 2017, collecting 825 disposals, the most in AFL history. That year, he won Adelaide’s Malcolm Blight Medal and was selected in the All Australian team. Over the next two seasons he averaged 32 disposals per game and broke his own career-high disposal tally twice with 46 against North Melbourne in Round 22, 2018, and then 47 against Western Bulldogs in Round 23, 2019.
