Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: 

Junior Club: Sturt (SA)
Draft History:
  2017 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Gold Coast) No. 42 overall.

Making his AFL debut in Round 7, 2018, Charlie Ballard went on to play 11 matches in his debut year with the Gold Coast SUNS. Ballard started off as a pressure half-forward but was swung into defence later in the season where he impressed with his ability to read the ball, intercept and rebound. 

After averaging 10 disposals 3.5 marks and just over a tackle a game, Ballard has set about adding bulk to his frame over the pre-season to allow himself to compete for longer at the highest level. Moving into the #10 guernsey for 2019, Ballard could be a breakout contender and will be pushing for a regular senior spot.
