Melbourne’s Clayton Oliver earns Round One NAB AFL Rising Star Nomination

TLA’s very own Clayton Oliver from the Melbourne Football Club was this week named the Round One NAB AFL Rising Star nominee.

Clayton, 18, received the nomination after a standout debut performance in the Demons’ two point come from behind win over the GWS Giants last Saturday at the MCG.

The tall midfielder had 17 possessions at half time with his clearance work a highlight. His ball-winning skills in the final quarter also proved vital in Melbourne’s win. He finished the match with 22 possessions (15 contested) after only spending 58% of his time on the ground.

Clayton’s AFL debut comes after a strong NAB Challenge series where he played all three games.

Originally from Mooroopna in central Victoria, Clayton was Melbourne’s first selection in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft (selection four overall).

Clayton enjoyed an outstanding season last year with the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup averaging 25 possessions a match and winning the 2015 Morrish Medal – awarded to the TAC Cup best and fairest.

He also tested well at the NAB AFL Draft Combine with a perfect score in the goal-kicking test and was third in the agility test.

This is a promising start to what will be a bright future for Clayton, and the team at TLA congratulates him on his nomination!
