Greater Western Sydney
Anderson was picked for the Greater Western Sydney scholarship program in 2010. When he was 16, he moved to western Sydney to spend a season playing for GWS's TAC Cup team, while being educated at Saint Ignatius' College, Riverview. He struggled to settle into his new school, got homesick and returned home mid-year. He was selected in the 2011 All-Australian under-18 team after an outstanding NAB AFL Under-18s championships.
Anderson was pre-listed by Greater Western Sydney and traded to Hawthorn for 2008 premiership player Stephen Gilham. Anderson made his debut for the Hawks in round 1 of the 2013 AFL season against Geelong. He was the round 3 AFL Rising Star nominee for 2013 following his performance against Collingwood in which he kicked his first goal. After an injury layoff, he played for Hawthorn's VFL-affiliate, Box Hill, until his form saw his return to the Hawthorn line-up in round 22. He played as the substitute and kicked a vital goal against Sydney in both round 23 and the qualifying final. He was one of the better players in the Box Hill premiership team in the 2013 Grand Final.
Anderson had a delayed start to 2014 pre-season after contracting pneumonia while on end of season leave in Darwin. He had been wading at Howard Swamps, southeast of Darwin, in search of geese. He resumed training with the club in January. In the first game of the VFL season against Williamstown, Anderson hurt his shoulder that eventually was operated on and he was out for the rest of the season.
Anderson who was contracted until the end on 2016 requested a trade for a chance to move to another club and get more opportunities for regular senior football. The small forward managed only four games for the 2015 season .
