McGovern secured his switch from the Adelaide Crows to Ikon Park, where he'll be a dynamic addition to the forward line. With the ability to also play a role in defence, the high-flying McGovern will provide another scoring avenue for the Blues.

Originally from Western Australia, McGovern’s footballing pedigree is evident: his father Andrew played for Fremantle, while his brother Jeremy is at West Coast. Now in navy blue, McGovern will be looking to make his own name.

Draft history: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Adelaide Crows) No.43 overall.
