Initially selected by Carlton as a mature-aged pre-draft access pick, Shane McAdam was quickly traded to the Crows in 2018. A medium-sized forward, McAdam equaled Nic Naitanui’s running vertical jump record at the 2015 Draft Combine but was overlooked. He booted 31 goals in 17 games for Sturt in a superb 2017 SANFL season, catching the attention of Adelaide’s recruiting team. McAdam hails from Halls Creek, a remote town in north-east Western Australia in the East Kimberley region. An injury-interrupted start to 2019 meant McAdam made his Club debut in the SANFL in Round Five. His speed and athleticism were consistently on display and he finished with 22 goals – making him the runner-up leading goalkicker for the SANFL Crows. Averaged 10 disposals, four marks and five tackles per game.He made his debut in the senior side in 2020.
