First-year Geelong midfielder Tim Kelly has taken home the MEGT Australia AFL Nation Rookie of the Year award, capping off a brilliant season.

Kelly finished with 10 votes meaning he was nominated almost every second week by the AFL Nation team.

The mature-age draft pick immediately stepped in and looked like a quality midfielder at AFL level.

He played all 22 games, averaging 23 disposals and kicking 23 goals for the season, including a bag of three against Gold Coast to finish the season.

Collingwood forward Jaidyn Stephenson and Sydney midfielder Oliver Florent finished in equal second place on seven votes, while Melbourne’s Bayley Fritsch and Adelaide’s Tom Doedee sit just behind on six.

Congrats to Kelly, the MEGT Australia Rookie of the Year.
