Jay Nash (born 21 December 1985) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early career[edit]

Nash began his career in South Australia, where he played for the Central District Football Club. In Junior Football he played for The Nuriootpa Rover Football Club (Tigers), in The Barossa Light & Gawler Football Association.

He was drafted by Essendon Football Club in the 2003 AFL Draft at Pick 28.

Essendon Bombers[edit]

In Essendon's round 16 win against Collingwood in 2005, defender Andrew Welsh was unable to take his place on the field. Nash was called in to replace him only hours before the match was scheduled to begin and he was lined up against Collingwood's captain Nathan Buckley.[1]

Nash played 43 games and kicked ten goals during his career at Essendon. He played a career high 18 games in the 2008 season, but only 2 games in 2009, as he struggled with foot injuries.[2]

Port Adelaide[edit]

On 8 October 2009, Nash was traded to the Port Adelaide Football Club in a four team deal, which included Shaun Burgoyne. Nash made his Port Adelaide debut against the Melbourne Football Club in 2010. He was delisted by the club at season's end.[3]


For the 2014 season he returned to his junior club Nuriootpa Rover Football Club (Tigers), in the Barossa Light & Gawler Football Association. He is currently wearing the number 12.
