MELBOURNE has welcomed Tom Fullarton to its AFL list, completing a trade with Brisbane on Friday afternoon.

The Demons secured the ruck-forward in exchange for pick No.47 in this year’s AFL Draft.

Fullarton arrives with 19 senior games and six goals to his name, having been recruited as a Category B rookie midway through 2018, swapping the basketball for the Sherrin.

At 200cm tall, he is set to add to the Demons’ ruck and forward stocks.

“We’re really pleased to welcome a tall and athletic player in Tom to the club,” Melbourne List Manager Tim Lamb said.

“We have seen what he is capable of, not only at senior level but through some dominant performances in the VFL. We look forward to seeing what he can produce as a Demon.”

Fullarton played 18 matches for Brisbane’s VFL side this past season, kicking 30 goals and averaging 15 disposals a game.
