2019 Trade Wrap

Bryce Gibbs (trd.), Zach Tuohy (trd.), Tom McCartin (trd.), Aaron vandenBerg (trd.), Lin Jong (trd.), Kade Kolodjashnij (trd.) Zac Langdon (trd.), Pat Kerr (del.), Connor Nutting (del.), Jackson Thurlow (del.), Ryan Lester (del.), Cam Polson (del.)

It was another busy trade period for Oxford, with 12 players departing. We wish these players well on their future endeavours, particularly Gibbs and Tuohy, who have both been great contributors for Oxford over the years.

Jed Anderson, Jamie MacMillan, Jonathon Patton, Callum Ah Chee, Conor Nash

The Lions welcome the arrival of 5 new players.

Coach SilverLion has given his comments on the new recruits:

J Anderson: "Good midfielder with room to improve, helps bolster our mid stocks which we were lacking in."

J MacMillan: "His best is of a very high level, but his consistency can let him down. Should be a starter for us."

J Patton: "Has shown that he has talent, but he also clearly has his risks. If fit, could go well at the Hawks and be an asset for us."

C Ah Chee: "Potential."

C Nash: "Has shown some signs and compliments our other Hawks talls."

S Murray: "No comment."

2019 National Draft Selections

Oxford would like to welcome the following players:

Pick #2:
Noah Anderson

Position: Midfielder
Height: 191cm
Weight: 87kg
DOB: 17/02/2001

AFL.com.au Journalist Cal Twomey: "At his size, and with his skill set, Anderson is able to impact games in a number of ways. Underpinning all of that is his work-rate – he's a hard-running midfielder who just keeps pressing all game. He showed that at the NAB AFL Draft Combine, when he completed the 2km time trial in 6:17 minutes, but he also has some take-off speed (he ran three seconds flat for the 20-metre sprint), which can be seen in his midfield work. Throughout the year Anderson also averaged two goals a game for the Chargers at NAB League level, highlighting his ability to push forward and be a genuine threat. The Vic Metro captain is a natural player who attracts the ball.

Pick #17:
Liam Henry

Position: Forward/Midfielder
Height: 180cm
Weight: 86kg
DOB: 28/08/2001

CT: "Henry is a special talent. His standout game of the year came when the stakes were perhaps highest, in the title-decider of the under-18 championships. The West Australian starred in his side's gripping win over Vic Country that saw them take out the carnival, with Henry best afield. His field kicking, smarts with the ball, class around goal and fine touch were on show, but only for a little longer after that, having injured his knee late in the season."

Pick #34:
Dylan Williams

Position: Forward
Height: 186cm
Weight: 81kg
DOB: 01/07/2001

CT: "Williams was one of a handful of players to participate in a 2km time trial in front of recruiters, completing it in 7:18 minutes in a promising display. It showed recruiters Williams had done the work while on the sidelines with a back stress fracture, which ruled him out of the second half of the season. Williams is one of the most talented players in the pool, having dominated patches of games in the forward line, where his overhead marking and goal sense is uncanny."

Pick #56:
Sam De Koning

Position: Defender
Height: 201cm
Weight: 86kg
DOB: 26/02/2001

CT: "De Koning's best patch of form for the season came at the under-18 championships, when he was one of the leading key defenders at the carnival and was named an All Australian. He uses his height and athleticism to tussle with opponents and get in their way, and can also be used part-time in the ruck. The younger brother of Carlton's Tom is raw and may need some time but has quality attributes."

2019/20 Trade Period 2 Wrap

On the last day of the Trade Period, Jack Gunston departed the Lions. We thank Jack for his services over the years, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

Bradley Hill

Coach SilverLion: "We've had some injuries over the pre-season to our midfield, that combined with a lack of true midfielders and a surplus of forwards meant that we targeted an additional midfielder in the trade period. Hill fits in perfectly with our age profile, and should be an asset for us."

2020 Awards

Best & Fairest - Noz-Vinny Medal:

In 2020 see the awarding of the second NV Medal.

The NV Medal is awarded to club's best & fairest player over the season. Votes for the NV Medal are given under a 5-4-3-2-1 system for the highest 5 scoring players each round. In the event where two or players scores in a round tie, their votes will be halved/divided by 3 etc., for example 5-4-2.5-2.5-1 or 5-4-3-1-1-1, this is to ensure that the total amount of votes available per round remains the same. If two or more players tie on total votes at the conclusion of the count, they will be named joint JF medalists.

(Note: In 2020, some player's scores in one game were used for multiple rounds, if this player's score is in the top 5 for either of the rounds it counts for, they will still receive votes. These scores will be marked with an asterix for reference).

NV Medallist 2020:

Congrats to Jed Anderson!

SL says: "Arriving from Grope Lane over the off-season as part of an exchange for Zach Tuohy, Jed well and truly exceeded expectations this year. Originally acquired with the thought of a utility spot in mind, Jed very quickly stepped up and became our highest averaging mid, as well as being our captain throughout the back half of the season."

2nd Place: Ollie Wines

SL says: "After a poor 2019 riddled with injuries and bad form, Ollie got back to the level we know he can. Very nearly pipped Jed for the BnF after a ripping finish to the season."

3rd Place: Bailey 'Bazlenka' Smith

SL says: "Baz took a massive leap this year, becoming one of our most consistent and important players. Will be great to watch his development for years to come."

4th Place: Jaeger O'Meara

SL says: "Jaeger backed up last year's JV Medal win with a respectable 4th this year. His output was again of a high level, and his drop in placings from last year to this is more of an indication of the improvement of his peers, rather than a drop in output by him."

5th Place: Tom Liberatore

SL says: "Much like Jaeger, Libba backed up last year's 2nd place in the JV medal with a respectable 5th this year. His form this year was arguable better and more consistent than last year, and he has solidified himself as an important cog in our midfield."


Special mention to the much loved Sam Docherty, who after missing two years with multiple ACL injuries, came back and played every game this year, and finished a respectable 6th in the BnF.

2020 Awards

The Winner of the Rookie of the Year Award for Oxford in 2020 is Noah Anderson! Congrats Noah!

SL says: "Taken with Pick 2 in the 2019 NAT Draft, Noah has shown great promise throughout the year, having played almost every game for Oxford. It will be exciting to watch his development for years to come.

2020 Trade Wrap

Tom Hawkins (trd.), Jonathon Ceglar (trd.), Brad Hill (trd.), Ben McEvoy (trd.), Stephen Hill (trd.), Dylan Grimes (trd.) Sam De Koning (trd.), Ned Reeves (trd.), Allen Christensen (ret.), Anthony Miles (ret.), Sam Lloyd (del. ret.), Sam Murray (del.), Jamie MacMillan (del.), Logan Austin (del.), Billy Gowers (del.), Patrick Ambrose (del.), Conor Nash (del.), Mark Hutchings (del.)

In the busiest Trade Period yet for the Lions, 18 players departed (nearly half the list :o). We wish these players well on their future endeavours (except Sam Murray, he can go and get flowered), particularly Hawkins, Ceglar and McEvoy, who have all been great contributors for Oxford over the years. The big Porko departs Oxford as a true club great, and as the reigning Coaches Award winner.

Scott Lycett, Michael Gibbons, Ben Keays, James Harmes, Ben Long, Todd Marshall, Mark O'Connor, Brent Daniels, Brandon Starcevich, Jayden Hunt

The Lions welcome the arrival of 10 new players!

Coach SilverLion has given his comments on the new recruits:

S Lycett: "The Power main ruck, pairing him with Ladhams takes care of our ruck stocks for a while."

M Gibbons: "Hard working fwd/mid that helps fill the void left by Hawkins in our forward line."

B Keays: "One of my favourites. Had a breakout year with the Crows and I'm hoping he continues to improve."

J Harmes: "Had a poor year being played out of position, hoping he gets his preferred role back and returns to his 2018-19 form."

B Long: "Promising young defender who looked good in his first year in the role. Could be a starter for us."

T Marshall: "Last minute acquisition who could be an asset up forward, has shown plenty of signs for a KPP so early into his career."

M O'Connor: "Solid and reliable defender who will provide handy depth for us."

B Daniels: "Good young prospect, is locked in the Giants' 22 and should continue to improve as a player."

B Starcevich: "Another one of my favourites. Had a breakout year and seems a lock in the Lions' 22, should only improve as well."

J Hunt: "Like Harmes, had a poor year. Taking the punt that he can turn it around and get back to the level he was at a couple of years ago."

2020 National Draft Selections

Oxford would like to welcome the following players:

Pick #19:
Logan McDonald

Position: Forward
Height: 196cm
Weight: 86kg
DOB: 04/04/2002

AFL Talent Ambassador Kevin 'Shifter' Sheehan: "Athletic tall forward who has taken all before him this year since debuting at senior level for Perth, kicking 21 goals in nine matches from his average 11.6 disposals and 4 marks. Showing some of the traits of a young Nick Riewoldt, he is strong overhead and a hard-running target who reads the ball impressively in flight and has rare footy smarts. Burst on the National scene in 2018 the NAB AFL Under-16 National Championships kicking 6 goals against Victoria Metro winning All-Australian Under 16s honours and was again prominent up forward as a bottom age player for Western Australia when they won the Under-18 National title in 2019. Very impressive at National Combine in WA recording 6 minutes 33 seconds for the 2km in the endurance and 3.03 seconds for 20 metres in the speed confirming his athleticism."

Pick #20:
Denver Grainger-Barras

Position: Defender
Height: 195cm
Weight: 78kg
DOB: 17/04/2002

KS: "Ability to read the play and intercept marking are his weapons which were on display making All Australian at Under-16 level in 2018. He starred as a bottom ager last year as Western Australia won the NAB AFL Under-18 National Championships for the first time in a decade. After debuting at senior level in 2019 in the WAFL he played eight senior games this year and continued to impress averaging 10.3 disposals and 4.5 marks. Winner of the AFL Life Members Scholarship in 2019, an annual award given to one outstanding prospect annually and won in the past by the likes of Joel Selwood and Nic Naitanui. Confirmed his speed (2.99 seconds for 20 metres) natural leap (running vertical jump- 87cm) and agility (8.13 seconds-AFL Agility run) in NAB AFL Draft Combine in WA."

Pick #51:
Ryan Angwin

Position: Defender/Forward
Height: 184cm
Weight: 74kg
DOB: 12/12/2002

KS: "Left footed medium forward/defender with silky skills and a high footy IQ. Knows how to find space, is a composed decision maker who is creative with the ball in hand. Good athlete with his agility (8.42 seconds-AFL Agility run) and endurance (6 minutes 12 seconds for 2km) both very good in preseason testing. Played 11 games as a bottom ager averaging 11.5 possessions (5.5 contested) and looked set for a big 2020 before shutdown of NAB League. Able to train with and learn from Port Adelaide’s Xavier Duursma, also from Foster, when the AFL competition was suspended making the most of the circumstances."
