Will Kelly was drafted under the father-son rule to Collingwood in the 2018 National Draft. Son of Magpies premiership defender Craig and brother of Crows defender Jake, Will has followed in the family footsteps to also play the majority of his football across the back lines. At 194cm tall, he is athletic enough to match up on key forwards or running across the half back line.
Kelly debuted for Collingwood in Round 6, 2020, kicking a goal and showing exciting signs, before suffering an injury to his arm which ended his season. However Collingwood fans were pleased with the glimpse they had and will be looking forward to seeing Kelly progress ahead of the 2021 season.
