SANFL’s latest addition to the 200 club, North Adelaide’s Jarred Allmond, has revealed he ”needed a change” upon his departure from Woodville-West Torrens at the end of 2017.
Having played 143 League games, including the 2011 premiership, with the Eagles since his debut in 2009, Allmond has been quick to become a fixture in the red and white at Prospect.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 30-year-old said he has thrived on having more responsibility as an older player with the Roosters.
The dashing left-footer has featured in two premierships, his other coming in North’s fairytale 2018 triumph in rising from fifth spot on the ladder and a wooden-spoon in the previous season.
Originally from Two Wells, Allmond is one of 11 children and the seventh oldest, ensuring he gained plenty of healthy competition amongst his siblings in the backyard and loungeroom throughout his childhood.
Outside of football, the three-time West Eend State player works for the City of Burnside as a concreter, ensuring he keeps active during the day before training during the week.
