Key defender Alex Keath joined the Western Bulldogs in the final 30 minutes of the 2019 Telstra AFL Trade Period from the Adelaide Crows.
He has committed to a three-year deal, which will see him don the red, white and blue until the end of 2022.
Keath had a breakout year in 2019, playing 18 matches and finishing ninth in the Crows’ best and fairest. He is courageous, good in the contest and someone who helps his teammates on the field.
Keath was a key-position player at junior level with Murray Bushrangers and Melbourne Grammar before he came close to joining Gold Coast as a 17-year-old priority pick.
He chose to pursue cricket, however, enjoying a brief first-class career with Victoria and Melbourne Stars, before he was signed by the Adelaide Strikers in 2015.
That move brought him to SA but with no first-class contract on offer, he looked to SANFL.
The 24-year-old joined the Crows as a mature Category B rookie in 2016 and two strong seasons in the SANFL saw him earn his AFL debut at the end of 2017.
