Player Bio

Background: Pre-NMFC

Joel Crocker joined North Melbourne with pick 69 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

Crocker was nominated by the Roos as a father-son pick, after his father Darren played 165 games for the club and was a part of the 1996 premiership. 

Like his father, the 191-centimetre Crocker is a versatile utility who can impact around the ground, playing predominantly through the midfield or up forward.

Crocker showed promising signs as a junior with his school Brighton Grammar, as well as during his time with the Sandringham Dragons, but his draft year was interrupted by a season-ending syndesmosis injury.

In one of his final games of 2018 before succumbing to injury, Crocker dominated with a five-goal performance for Brighton Grammar in a clash with Caulfield Grammar.

With father Darren being a part of the North coaching panel since 2004, Joel has been involved with the club for as long as he can remember, training with the senior group on a number of occasions. 

Crocker becomes North’s second father-son pick of 2018 after Bailey Scott, and fourth overall. 

Season by season

Season by season

After barely playing football in 2018 because of a syndesmosis injury, Crocker got some much-needed continuity in his football, playing all 18 games in the VFL.

The first-year defender showed some impressive signs, and found plenty of the footy, collecting 20+ disposals on six occasions. 

Crocker’s strong first season showing will give him a platform to build on for 2020.
