Adelaide Crows Champ Scott Thompson Set To Retire

Adelaide champion Scott Thompson has retired from footy and will hang up the boots at season's end.

The two-time best and fairest winner with the Crows has played 300 games in the AFL after being drafted by Melbourne in 2000.

“I consider it an absolute privilege to have played at the elite level for so many years,” Thompson said on the club website.

“I have heard many others say it is the camaraderie and friendship inside the change rooms that you miss most when you retire and I will be no different.

“The current group is not just full of talent, but also great blokes who have a genuine care for each other and a desire for team success.”


Don Pyke said Thompson had been a servant of the club.

“Scott has been a true champion of the Adelaide Football Club and his achievements as a player are thoroughly deserved,” Pyke said.

“From the day that he arrived at the Club, he has been a fantastic leader both on and off the field who has helped those around him improve.

“To play at such a high standard for more than 300 games is a credit to him and his professional approach to the game and he will leave a long-standing legacy at the Club.

“I would like to wish Scott and his family the very best for the future.”
