Aidan Corr is a Northern Irishman who moved to Australia with his family at young age. Corr was recruited by the GWS Giants during the 2012 NAB AFL Draft where he was selected in the first round. The highly athletic tall defender played his junior football for the Northern Knights in the TAC and was also a graduate of the AIS/AFL Academy. Aidan is renowned for being a highly competitive athlete who defends aggressively, making him a formidable defender.
Aidan debuted for the Giants in Round 6 of the 2013 season against Essendon and went on to play a further 9 games for the season. Corr’s 2014 season was marred by injury that only saw him play the 4 games – Corr withdrew from the season after his shoulder required surgery. However, to Corr’s great credit, his 2015 campaign was one of great success and consistency, playing 19 games. This season was especially significant as Corr was left to fill the void of co-captain Phil Davis and Joel Patfull who were facing injury at the time.
Hoping to continue his great 2015 form, Corr sadly had his 2016 season ended abruptly. After a serious ankle injury in Round 3, Corr was forced into long-term rehabilitation. Despite making a successful return to playing, Corr was limited to the NEAFL side however was involved in their premiership; a great achievement. Corr returned in 2017 to have his most consistent year to date, playing 23 games. Corr displayed significant strength and resilience as a defender and played several roles on powerful forwards. As a 23-year old, Corr holds great excitement for the Giants fans and has consequently signed on until the end of the 2020 season.
