Career highlights

Stewart Crameri (born 10 August 1988) is an Australian rules footballer for the Western Bulldogs in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early life[edit]

Crameri was selected by Essendon with the forty-third pick in the 2009 AFL Rookie Draft. After spending three seasons with the Bendigo Bombers, Crameri was finally given a chance at senior football after strong rumors in 2008 that he would be drafted by Essendon.

In 2009, he was one of the few shining lights in a very dark year for the Bendigo Bombers who went through the season rooted to the bottom of the ladder and winless.[1] He originally played for Maryborough Football Club in the Bendigo Football League, and unlike most Victorians in the AFL, did not play in the TAC Cup as a junior.[2]

AFL career[edit]

Crameri made his AFL debut for Essendon against Collingwood in Round 20 of the 2010 AFL season.[3]

Crameri has had a great 2011 season up forward for Essendon, kicking 34 goals and was the club's leading goalkicker. At the Crichton Medal, Essendon FC Best & Fairest, he was awarded the Matthew Lloyd Leading Goal Kicking Award, and was the Essendon Football Club Most Improved player for 2011.

For the 2012 season, Crameri has inherited the #12 jersey formerly worn by Andrew Welsh, who retired at the end of the 2011 season.[4]

The Goldfields Region Sports Association awarded Crameri the Jack Worrall Medal for the region's most outstanding sportsperson for 2011.

On Thursday 24 October 2013, it was announced that Crameri had been traded from Essendon to the Western Bulldogs in exchange for pick number 26 in the National Draft.
