Player bio

At a glance

Junior clubs: Port Pirie Football Club
Clubs: Brisbane, Port Adelaide
Debut: R3, 2013
Recruited from: Brisbane
Sponsor:

Sam Mayes found his way to Alberton as part of the Chad Wingard trade. The former Brisbane player returned to his native South Australia after playing 101 games for the Lions. 

Initially in consideration to be drafted by Port Adelaide in the 2012 draft, he slipped to pick 8, with the Power opting to select Ollie Wines ahead of him. A skilful half-forward/wingman who played senior football with North Adelaide in the SANFL as an 18-year-old, Mayes is hoping a fresh start in his home state will re-ignite his career.
