Part of St Kilda’s new breed looking to take the club towards finals action, Nick Coffield has all the attributes the modern game requires.
Drafted with pick 8 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, Coffield’s first full year of football after juggling Basketball commitments saw his game improve rapidly. Coffield put recruiters on notice as he dominated games both in defence, midfield and even forward.
Not only a highly regarded player, his leadership skills have also been highly praised. The Northern Knights Captain and Under 18 All Australian excelled at the NAB AFL Draft Combine, most notably with a 2.9 second 20m sprint.
Nick made his AFL debut in Round 3 2018, accumulating an impressive 18 disposals, 6 marks and a goal against Grand Finalists Adelaide. A further nine games followed, with Coffield impressing for Sandringham in the VFL when not in the Saints line-up.
Yet to taste a win for the Saints, Coffield will be looking to deliver that and plenty more in years to come.
