Player Bio

Background

Taken with pick No. 19 in the 2013 National Draft, Acres is an emerging midfielder with serious potential.

Athletically gifted, the young West Australian has played 56 senior games and will look to cement his place in the Saints engine room this year. 

A spate of niggling groin injuries hampered the youngster from reaching his full potential in 2019, the 23-year-old forced to the sidelines for nine consecutive weeks in the middle of the season. 

After spending time as an inside midfielder last year, Acres’ newfound flexibility could see him transition between that and as an outside runner in what will hopefully be an influential 2019.
