Jesse Crichton runs a time trial

I was cruising in my first three years here
Jesse Crichton acknowledges the first three seasons of his AFL career weren’t good enough and is desperate to make amends.

The 21-year-old was delisted at the end of the 2012 season but was given a reprieve via the pre-season draft.

“I was excited at getting another chance, getting delisted wasn’t the best experience,” Crichton said.

“I probably deserved it but I’m very happy to be here now and hopefully I can make the most of my second chance.”

After being told by senior coach Ross Lyon that he was to be delisted, Crichton’s mindset changed instantly heading into the off-season break.

“I was told I would be delisted, but with a chance to train on in the coming pre-season,” he said.

“I took that on board and I went and trained as hard as I could.”

Crichton identified the parts of his game he needed to improve on, sought out two teammates and drew upon their strengths.

“I tried to stick with Sam Menegola, who is the best runner at the club, and run with him, and Alex Silvagni, who is a beast in the gym.

“I worked out with those two as much as I could and stick to what they do.”

Not wanting to waste any more time, the half-back hopes his commitment and hard work will pay off, and put him in good stead for 2013.
 
“I was cruising in my first three years here,” he said.  

“I was taking it as it comes, but it goes pretty quick and can be over just like that.

“This time around I’m going to try and make the most of every opportunity and do the best I can.”

“I want to play as many games as I can and help the team hopefully play some finals.”
