Mitch Grigg (born 2 January 1993) is a former professional Australian rules footballer who played for the Adelaide Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was recruited from Norwood Football Club in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) with selection 41 in the 2011 national draft.[1]. He won the 2017 Magarey Medal playing for the Norwood Football Club.

AFL career[edit]

Grigg did not play an AFL game in 2012, instead playing for the Norwood senior and reserves sides in the SANFL.[2] He made his debut late the next season, in round 17 against Geelong, after showing strong form in the SANFL.[3] In five games in 2013 he averaged an impressive 16 possessions, returning to Norwood for the finals where he helped them to a premiership.[2] He also re-signed with the club for two years.[4]

Grigg struggled to break into the side in 2014 and 2015, hampered by the substitute rule and untimely injuries, but he performed well in the SANFL for Adelaide's new reserves side, polling the most Magarey Medal votes for the club in both seasons.[2] At the conclusion of the 2016 season, he was delisted by Adelaide. He is now back playing with his home club Norwood in the SANFL.[5]
