Troy Bond proved to be a valuable pick-up from Carlton, where he was dropped for the 1995 grand final after playing 36 games in two seasons with the Blues. The small forward, originally from Port Adelaide, won the SANFL’s McCallum Medal (Under 17s) in 1990.
He returned to South Australia as part of a three-way trade between the Crows, Geelong and Carlton, adding speed, skill and game-breaking goals to the Adelaide forward line. Bond kicked four goals in the 1997 premiership win over St Kilda but injuries restricted him during his last couple of seasons and he missed the 1998 flag success. He left the Club at the end of the 1999 season.
