Star Signing - Bailey Chamberlain

New Port Adelaide coach Hamish Hartlett knows exactly what he’s getting after landing the signature of Bailey Chamberlain.

That’s because Hartlett played alongside the 21-year-old at West Adelaide in 2022, when Hartlett claimed the Neil Kerley Medal.

A smooth-moving midfielder, Chamberlain – a lifelong Port fan – will certainly be an asset on the outside of the contest with his ball movement by foot in 2024.

Making his SANFL League debut in 2020, Chamberlain is one of a host of experienced players to land on the Magpies’ SANFL-contracted list for this season.

Norwood’s Logan Evans has joined Port Adelaide under the SANFL Rookie Program.

Powerade Breakthrough Player Candidate - Logan Evans

Norwood’s Logan Evans arrives at Alberton under the SANFL Rookie Program for season 2024.

After being overlooked in last year’s AFL Draft cycle, the athletic medium defender will look to add to his four League games racked up at the start of 2023 with the Redlegs.

Measuring in at a deceptive 188cm, the Hectorville product has the ability to play on the opposition’s small and tall defenders while also reading the play.
