Versatile forward Aaron Young comes to the SUNS from Port Adelaide in search of greater opportunity to play senior football. Secured in the 2017 NAB Trade Period for a future fourth-round draft pick, Young brings 76 games of AFL experience to a youthful and exciting SUNS list.

Young’s most productive season came in 2016 when he kicked 37 goals and averaged 16 possessions per game for the Power. He played just 13 games in 2017 but will be looking to make an immediate impact in 2018 on the field for the SUNS.
