PORT ADELAIDE has delisted Sam Gray ahead of today’s first AFL list lodgement deadline.

Gray has featured in 96 AFL games and 98 SANFL games for Port Adelaide, and in 2018 was awarded Life Membership of the club.

Having joined Port Adelaide as a teenager from Cleve on Eyre Peninsula in 2008, he made his SANFL debut in 2010 and later earned a rookie contract on the AFL list after winning the A.R. McLean Medal as the club’s 2013 SANFL best and fairest.

The 27-year-old burst onto the scene with three goals against Brisbane in his AFL debut in Round 4, 2014 and has gone on to kick 83 AFL majors, including 20 in 2019.

“Sam has been a great contributor to the Port Adelaide Football Club, having started at U/17 level from his home in Cleve on the Eyre Peninsula, progressing to win a SANFL Best and Fairest for the club before being drafted onto the club’s AFL list and then making his way into our team,” said General Manager – Football, Chris Davies.

“Throughout that time, he has shown his versatility and willingness to play in multiple positions on the ground, in order to help the team.

“There is no doubt that he has developed a lot of friendships over his journey and has been a popular member of the playing group and we wish him all the very best for his future.”
