Sydney Stack is officially a Tiger, with the Richmond Football Club confirming that they have lodged paperwork on Monday to recruit the Northam teen.
The 18-year-old has been training with the Tigers since December, as part of the AFL’s new Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period.
Stack, who played for the Colts, Reserves and League side for the Perth Demons in the 2018 WAFL season was overlooked in the official draft.
In his 11 games for the Colts he averaged 23.2 disposals a game and scored three goals and three behinds.
For the Reserves Stack played one game and had 15 disposals and one behind.
Stack finished his WAFL season playing three league games averaging 14 disposals and kicking one goal and two disposals.
Richmond general manager Neil Balme said Stack had earned his place in the team.
“We’re delighted to welcome Sydney to the Club, he’s worked really hard to secure a spot on the list, and we know he’ll continue to work hard to develop his football,” Balme said.
“Sydney’s got great speed, skill, and competes really hard, so we’re excited by what he’ll bring to the team.
“We think that Richmond is a positive environment for him, and we’re pleased with how he’s settling into the Club and our football program.”
