PORT ADELAIDE is delighted to announce former Melbourne co-captain Jack Trengove has accepted a one-year offer to join the Power in 2018.

Trengove, who played 86 games for Melbourne since debuting in the opening Round of 2010, joins Port Adelaide after being recruited by the Demons with pick 2 at the 2009 AFL National Draft.

Port Adelaide list manager Jason Cripps says Trengove still has plenty to offer.

“The football world knows that Jack has had some much-publicised injury setbacks over the last couple of years but we are confident that he still has plenty of upside and will contribute positively to our playing group both on and off the field,” said Cripps.

“We are all well aware of the skill level and pure football ability that Jack possesses, but most importantly he also brings great character, integrity and leadership to our club which will be invaluable to our entire playing group.”

Trengove, who was born in South Australia, is thrilled to be coming home to a second chance at AFL level.

“I am so appreciative of Port Adelaide providing me with another chance to play the game I love,” said Trengove.

“I still feel as though I have plenty to offer with my experience and leadership and I can’t wait to start this new phase in my career.

“And to come home and be back around family and friends will make the transition so much easier.”

Trengove will officially join his new teammates at Alberton at pre-season training on Monday 27 November.
