The Gold Coast SUNS have drafted experienced midfielder Charlie Constable with pick 63 in the 2021 NAB AFL Draft.
Constable comes to the club after spending the previous four seasons on Geelong’s AFL list, originally drafted in 2017 with pick 36 overall.
Making his debut in Round 1, 2019, Constable played 12 games in his four seasons at the Cats before being delisted last month.
GC SUNS National Recruiting Manager Kall Burns said the 22-year-old would add depth to the club’s midfield unit.
“We have continued to track Charlie’s progress since being drafted to Geelong in 2017,” Burns said.
“He has shown his consistency at VFL level and with limited opportunity at AFL level in a strong midfield group at Geelong, he has demonstrated his ability to play at the top level when given the chance.
“Charlie is a strong ball-winner with great physicality and at 191cm he will complement our existing mix of midfielders well.”
“Charlie has been in a successful system for a number of years so we’re really excited about what he can bring to the group and expect he will be able to hit the ground running.”
Constable joins the senior list after the club also secured athletic ruckman Mac Andrew with selection 5 in the NAB AFL Draft on Wednesday night.
