The forward was already contracted for next year, but has now signed a two-year extension.

“I’ve loved my time here and I’m really happy to extend my contract for the next few years,” Fogarty said.

“It was good to play some consistent footy towards the back end of this year and also see the improvement in our team as we play more football together.

“The group we’ve got is heading in the right direction, we have an exciting young forward line playing under ‘Tex’ (Taylor Walker) and I’m just happy to be a part of that.”

Taken with pick No.12 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, Fogarty has kicked 83 goals in 58 games.

Darcy Fogarty Crows 

Adelaide forward Darcy Fogarty says the club just wanted to let their football do the talking in Perth after a disastrous week for the Crows in the headlines.

Days after former players Eddie Betts, Bryce Gibbs and Josh Jenkins spoke publicly of the turmoil they endured as a result of the infamous 2018 pre-season camp, Adelaide headed west and withstood a spirited Eagles fightback in Josh Kennedy’s farewell match.

While finals are out of reach for the Crows, Fogarty said the players just wanted to put the week behind them with the 16-point win at Optus Stadium.

“We let (the camp saga) go and let the football do the talking.

“We’ve only got a handful of players that were there still (at the club) – we’ve got a really young group of boys so we are focusing on footy at the moment and trying to work how to play our best footy.”

Fogarty was just starting his AFL career when the infamous camp took place, after he was snapped up by the Crows in the 2017 draft.

Coach Matthew Nicks said he was impressed with the mental strength shown by his players after such a testing week.

“We’re an extremely professional young group, staff and players so we put our heads down and we went to work,” he said.

“We wanted to get over here and play footy. Nothing changed during the week.

“We got across here, and we were ready to play.”


He made his debut in the twelve point loss to Essendon at Etihad Stadium in the opening round of the 2018 season.

Fogarty kicked three goals as a shining light in attack for the Crows in their 42-point loss away to Geelong on Saturday.

The 22-year-old was his team’s only multiple goal-kicker and his season-best tally was a welcome return as he played the lead role in an undermanned forward line.

Taylor Walker (virus protocols) and rising star Josh Rachele (rested) were both missing but are expected to return against West Coast in round 12.

Nicks saw some positives in his side’s competitive display against Geelong – the Crows closed to within eight points during the third quarter – and was full of praise for Fogarty.
