Dedication pays off as Kelly prepares for AFL debut

Saturday, March 24, 2018 - 4:20 PM - by Chris Pike

THIS time last year Tim Kelly was preparing for another strong WAFL season with South Fremantle and was a father of one, now all of a sudden the father of three is preparing for his AFL debut with Geelong and it's hard to imagine anyone more deserving.

He continued to improve year on year with it a surprise that he hadn’t been put on an AFL list by the time the 2017 season started. But by the finish of last season, Kelly could no longer be ignored having had a simply brilliant season in a Bulldogs team that reached a second straight preliminary final.
