NT Thunder is pleased to announce experienced Territory footballer Jarred Erlandson has signed to play with the Club in 2018.

Even with injury interrupting his 2017 NEAFL campaign, Erlandson added 11 games to his rep footy tally, which started at National Under 16s and winning the best and fairest McAdam Medal.

As a 16-year-old playing for Pioneers, he was also awarded best on ground in the Central Australian Football League grand final, and has since gone on to play 141 games and win two premierships with Wanderers in the NTFL

Now 25-years-old, he is a hardworking inside midfielder that NT Thunder Head Coach Andrew Hodges said embodied the type of guy he wanted to be involved at the Club.

“Erlo is a coach’s dream. He’s one of the quieter members of the team but he has all the right values and behaviour and has a team-first mentality.

“He’s had a disappointing run with injury lately, which has hampered his ambitions with Wanderers, but I have no doubt he’ll be fighting fit and ready to go come NEAFL season.”
