Hamish Hartlett joined Port Adelaide as the club’s highest-ever draft selection after a standout junior career with West Adelaide, recruited with Pick 4 in the 2008 AFL Draft.

A long-kicking and physical player, capable of playing out of defence and through the midfield, it didn’t take Hartlett long to make his AFL debut. He would go on to play 193 games over an impressive 13-year career at Alberton.

He boasts a string of accolades from his time at the club and is well noted for his leadership qualities, including three seasons serving as Port Adelaide’s vice-captain (2016, ‘19 and ’21) over 10 consecutive years within the club’s leadership group (2012-21).

Post-AFL career Hartlett returned to West Adelaide in 2022, winning the Bloods' best and fairest, while also serving as the club’s Youth Development Manager.

In 2023, Hartlett took on a full-time position in Port Adelaide’s men’s program as a development coach where he worked with the club’s emerging defenders.

Hartlett leads the club's SANFL side as senior coach in 2024.
