At 194 centimetres and blessed with outstanding aerobic ability and disposal, Dylan Roberton has quickly assumed a key role in St Kilda’s defence after three seasons and 37 games with Fremantle.
From the Dandenong Stingrays, Roberton was pick 49 in the 2009 NAB AFL Draft.
An excellent servant of the Dockers in his time at the club, Roberton elected to head back to Victoria for family reasons, with the Saints gaining his services as a Free Agent at the end of 2012.
Having played his junior football at Frankston YCW, Roberton is plying his trade as an AFL player at St Kilda’s Seaford base just minutes from his home club.
Roberton proved a welcome addition to the Saints back line, playing 20 games providing a balance of attack and defence and finished top ten in the Saints Best and Fairest.
After a challenging 2014 due to injury, the father of three played another 20 games in 2015 to have his best AFL season to date. Another consistent year in 2016 saw Roberton pass the 100 game milestone and he is an important part of the Saints push up the table under Alan Richardson.
