He played senior football with the Darwin Football Club in the Northern Territory League. He moved from Darwin to Adelaide in South Australia where he played with the Port Adelaide
Football Club in the local competition. In his first year, his team won the grand final. In 1995 he joined the Adelaide Crows in the Australian Football League.Where he liked to run, kick and jump. In the AFL Andrew McLeod's
position is being a halfback and
midfield person. He was awarded
Adelaide's Emerging Talent Award. In 1997, Malcolm Blight took
over as the coach of the Adelaide
Crows. In that year, they played
in the AFL Grand Final against
St. Kilda and won. In the Grand Final he was voted as the

looked like. This is the Adelaide Crows mascot.
His name is Claude' Curls' Crow. The following Year the Crows won another
Grand Final and Andrew McLeod won his second Norm Smith Medal. McLeod is one of the greatest indigenous football players of all time.He wore jumper number 23. Macca suffered a knee injury on and off in his
career which he overcame with surgery. However, in round 11 of 2010 he hurt his troubled right knee and played one final match against Geelong. He announced his retirement from AFL football after playing 340 games. Macca helped many Indigenous people with their lives
and gave a speech supporting Indigenous people to the United Nations. We can learn from Andrew McLeod to
treat all Indigenous people with respect and show them kindness. Club Song We're the pride of South Australia and we're

Our commitment ever grows.
